LSL U19 North
Kilbarrack United 1
Shelbourne Academy 1
A superb performance by our Under 19s saw them hold leaders Shelbourne Academy to a 1-1 draw and put an end to their 100% record while maintaining our own unbeaten start.
Kilbarrack’s equalising goal by the excellent Mervin Mambo was the first conceded by Shels in their opening 5 games of the season.
Kilbarrack had the better of the first half and any talk of a handy day for the leaders was put to bed as Kilbarrack had them on the ropes for the best part of the opening half.
Shels pressed harder in the 2nd half and their pressure paid off after a series of excellent stops by Kayleum Rice Shels finally broke the deadlock.
But this Kilbarrack team dug deep and equalised shortly after through Mambo. Kilbarrack finished on the front foot and Shels were the ones holding on to their point.
The win moves the boys into 4th place with games in hand.
