A gallant effort from the home side wasn’t enough to overcome a strong Skryne challenge in Summerhill. The visitors had more options off the bench which was a great help when the game was still in the melting pot before the second water break. Thereafter everything Skryne touched seemed to go over the bar. The Hill boys as usual kept it going to the end and emptied the bench, but even a cracking Nathan Nangle goal after he missed a sitter wasn’t enough to stem the Skryne tide.
