Dragons fired up for finale

Keighley Shamrocks u9 2
Silsden Dragons 4

The last game of the season brought another reshuffle for Silsden with several players injured, including Lewis Gartland with a knee injury and Jaylan Camsey, a broken hand.
Silsden started slowly and the Shammies No.4 unleashed a great shot to put his side ahead.
Down but not out, the Cobbydalers woke up and started to pass the ball around nicely and move the opposition around.
Daniel Barnes broke a few tackles and laid the ball on for Sam Ayik, who coolly slotted the ball into the corner of the net.
Harry Whitaker made some outstanding tackles and breaks down the left wing, one resulting in a corner taken by man of the match Charlie Barnes who curled it in for Barnes to head home.
More great teamwork resulted in Barnes scoring his second from distance to make it 3-1 at half-time.
The second half was end to end with both teams going close but Silsden goalkeeper Sammie Brockbank was as solid as ever.
Fantastic defensive play from George Ellison and Lola Cunningham kept the Shamrocks at bay.
A well deserved goal came from Josh Elliot, who never stopped plugging away at the Shamrocks defence. His persistence paid off when he broke free from the two defenders marking him and blasted the ball into the back of the net.
A good Shammies team never gave up and got a goal back with a deflection a minute before the final whistle.
