posted 4 May 2015, 14:04 by BanteerLyre GAA

On a night that no one would want to be out in, Knocknagree played host to Lyre in horrible conditions.

Knocknagree had the wind in the first half and they used it to their advantage. They got off the mark after the second minute from a free. They got another 2 points before they got the first goal of the game. Knocknagree were now up 1-03 to Lyre's no score. They added one more point before Lyre were able to put one on the scoreboard coming from Martin Kearney in the 20th minute. Two more frees from Brian O'Driscoll and Kevin Roche meant Lyre were getting involved and with Jack Roche slotting another point the comeback was on but Knocknagree soon cancelled that out with another goal before halftime.

Halftime: Lyre 0-04; Knocknagree 2-04

As conditions worsened, Lyre had a uphill battle in the second half. Knocknagree added 2 more points in the 41st and 44th minute. Lyre finally hit back in the 49th minute with another point from Jack Roche, as it would turn out, this was Lyre's last and only score in the second half. Knocknagree added another 3 points which meant this game was truly over.

Final score: Lyre 0-05; Knocknagree2-09
