posted 10 Mar 2014, 13:41 by BanteerLyre GAA

A very interesting fixture this week as Lyre took on league champions Knocknagree, Lyre were two wins from two and hoping to stay on the winning track.

The first half started well for Lyre as they got a early goal coming from the boot of Cathal McHugh. As the game went on both teams weren't giving the other to get ahead. Lyre added a few points on to the scoreboard but as the first came to a close Knocknagree added some pressure and gained points back. As the first half whistle blew the only difference was the early Lyre goal.

Halftime: Lyre 1-05 Knocknagree 0-05

The second half was much like the first as both teams giving it there all and not giving the other to get to far ahead, but Knocknagree wanted more and went and scored a goal that just slipped in past the Lyre players. Lyre didn't let it last long as they too scored a second goal that eventually past a crowded Knocknagree goal. Pa Keeffe then scored a great point from a difficult angle to put Lyre in front, but Knocknagree fought back to score a last minute goal to win the game by two points.

Fulltime: Lyre 2-06  Knocknagree 2-08
