This was a cracking game between two good young teams and certainly bodes well for their future and that of the league as quite a number of teams are putting the faith in young players. Raceview had the first chance in the game when Gareth Dickey put over a cross on the 9th minute but Matt Boyd’s shot went past the post. Carniny then had a good chance on the 14th minute but Keeper Scullion saved well from Adam Whitehurst then on the 16th minute Steven O’Neill went close to scoring but put his shot narrowly past the post. Carniny then had a good chance when awarded a free kick on the edge of the penalty box on the 37th minute but Barry Hamill shot over without troubling Keeper Scullion.
Half-time saw the teams still level with no goals scored then on the 46th minute Ryan McCartney shot for goal only to see Keeper Scullion make a top class save diverting the ball for a corner then at the other end the Carniny Keeper McNeilly saved well to deny Andy Duncan from scoring on the 55th minute. The first goal came on the on the hour when Carniny failed to clear a corner kick resulting in the ball ping ponging about in the six yard area a number of times before Stefan Calderwood poked the ball in to the Carniny net putting Raceview in front. Raceview then had a couple of good chance after this but Stephen Craig put his shots wide of the goals on the 80th and 82nd minutes. At the end of a pulsating game and with the one nil win Raceview claimed the Connon Cup which was presented to the Raceview captain Mark Ritchie by Miss Jane McIlrath assistant secretary of the League Referee.
