Lisgoold second string finally secured their first point of their league campaign in a thrilling 3-14 to 3-14 draw against Bride Rovers in Páirc Liosgcúl last Wednesday evening. In a picturesque sunny evening we saw a match, where it ebbed and flowed constantly throughout the hour. People, who witnessed it, were treated to a unbelievable spectacle. In a frantic start where we saw Dave Barry, Brendan Flynn starting off the scoring... while Kieran Barry, Andrew O'Donovan were shoring up the defence. Both teams went at it hammer and thong, we had a chance of a goal from a 21 yard free by our custodian in the sticks, peter leahy (in the 16th minute) but he couldn't take it.. As the half time whistle blew it was 1-7 to 0-5 to the Bride. In the second half, super sub Eoghan Heagrty demonstrated why he should be considered to start next time by bagging 2-1 in quick succession. This turned the game on its head, and it seemed after Noel Connery's magnificent solo run led to his fourth point of the game, we looked like heading for a win, but the rovers (as usual) never give in and fought back defiantly to draw the game. Both sides had their chances but couldn't edge in front. In the end, a draw seemed a fair result. Manager Mike Mulcahy had this to say "I'm delighted we managed to a get a draw, we played well for the hour, and I'm very satisfied with the player’s performance, epically Kieran Barry, Brendan Flynn & Finbarr Brosnan. We have only two games left before championship, so we just have enough time to tweak the team right for championship which is against Midleton."
