Lyre earned a hard fought victory over Dromtariffe last Sunday in Banteer. Lyre got off to a slow start conceding the opening score straight from the throw in. Lyre answered with a goal to Connie Tarrant. Dromtariffe had the next two points to level the score before points to Tim Murphy and Denis Roche had Lyre ahead again. Dromtariffe closed the gap before an outstanding solo effoer from James Twohig and another from Timmie Murphy had Lyre ahead 1 04 to 4 points. Dromtarriffe closed the Lyre advantage to 1 point before a Fergus Murphy point handed Lyre a 2 point half time lead, 1 05 to 6 points.

Early in the second half Dromtariffe found the Lyre net to lead before Denis Roche levelled the score. The sides traded points with Tim Murphy (2) and Roche on target for Lyre. With time running out and the game level a surging run by Timmie Murphy resulted in a free for Tim Murphy to convert and seal Lyre victory.
