Comber Rec

Comber travelled to Hydebank to face Lisburn Distillery on Saturday morning. Following a solid start to the season which has seen us quality for the Supplementary Cup semi final and get through to the next round of the NIBFA, we were looking to push on and continue our cup form into the league.

Following a busy summer, Comber welcomed in no fewer than 6 players into the squad. Nathan Cousins and Luke McMullan joined us from Ards Rangers, Cain McMordie joins us from Shorts and Lewis McGinnis, Bruno and Jake Kelly all rejoin the team from Braga.
Comber started the game on the upper hand, with chances coming from Magee and if it wasn’t from the Distillery keeper we would’ve been 1 up sooner. Watson has started this season as our holding midfielder and in our midfield three along with Floyd and Topping were able to create chances and play balls through to our attack of Bruno, Lewis and Jared. Distillery did have chances of their own and Smyth was on hand to tip a long range effort just past the post.
The front three had their work cut out in the first half and a well organised Distillery back 4 and goalkeeper kept the scores level. McInnes has started the season in brilliant form but he knew he was in for a tough afternoon against the Distillery centre half.
Comber had a few corners before the half time break but no real efforts and this saw the score remain 0-0 at half time. We had our fair share of chances but Distillery has a couple of chances on their own and we knew that we weren’t in for an easy afternoon.
A change at halftime saw Thompson come on for Wosinski and straight away the front 3 were playing much better and creating more and more chances. Milligan came on for Watson and we pushed Warwick into midfield to try and create a bit more going forward.
Distillery could’ve been 1-0 in front if it wasn’t for a looped shot that left Smyth watching, as it hit the crossbar. Their number 6 in midfield was starting to dictate play so another change saw McMordie come on the left for McInnes, and shortly after that Comber got the breakthrough.
A quick throw from Smyth found McMullan’s feet, and he played a simple pass to Floyd in midfield. Floyd then played a wonder outside of the boot ball through to Magee and our number 7 composed himself brilliantly and finished past the keeper who was coming out to put him under pressure and put us 1-0 ahead.
For the last 10 minutes, Comber defended superbly. Moore at right back was still making darting forward runs in the last minutes of the game, but it was Jackson and Milligan who were making crucial blocks and organising our defence as we held out to win our first league game of the season.
With a semi final and a last 32 NIBFA game to look forward to, we knew it was important to get off to a good start to the league campaign. The boys and coaching staff have been working hard all summer to improve the squad and our chances of winning trophies, and we feel this is a realistic target.
Big thank you to all parents and support the boys received today, and next week we play Crewe United at Hydebank with an 11am kick off.
