Junior Football League Division 1

Lisgoold 1-08 Fr. O’Neills 1-06

As storm Ciara began to pick up on Saturday afternoon, our junior footballers played their second league game of the season. With a strong wind blowing down the pitch and heavy rainfall both teams struggled to get a foothold in the game. Lisgoold, playing against the wind in the first half, started brightly and managed to score a point after some great interplay. Fr. O’Neills kept the pressure on however were unable to convert the pressure to scores. At half time, Lisgoold were leading 0-3 to 0-2.

Lisgoold started the second half with increased intensity and after a period of sustained pressure managed to take a significant lead. Cathal Hickey, playing at wing back, made a ranging run into the forward line and scored an excellent goal to give daylight between the teams. However, Fr. O’Neills were not undone yet and began to claw themselves back into the game. After some sloppy defending they managed to get a goal to set up a tense finish. But, as with last weekend, Lisgoold managed to hold out and secure their second win of the season.
