Lyre 1 08  Knocknagree 09


Lyre secured a place in the championship semi final with a hard fought win over Knocknagree. Although Knocknagree opened the scoring Lyre responded through scores to Denis Roche and Timmie Murphy. Although Lyre had plenty of scoring opportunities in the remainder of the half a number of missed chances saw them trailing 5 points to 2 at the break.

Lyre started brightly in the second half with Roche and Murphy again finding the target to cut the lead. Further Lyre scores to Sean Murphy, Kevin Tarrant and Thomas Vaughan so Lyre take the lead. Although Knocknagree responded to narrow the Lyre advantage, Vaughan popped up to score the games only goal to stretch the lead once again with time running out. Knocknagree tried hard to find a goal to get them back in the game but the Lyre defence stood firm and Lyre deservedly claimed the victory.
