Hale de­nies Lim­er­ick

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SOCCER -

Lim­er­ick are not cer­tain if they will qual­ify for the pro­mo­tion-rel­e­ga­tion play­offs as a point at the Mar­ket’s Field would have guar­an­teed them a place as a well-struck goal by Ro­nan Hale gave the vis­i­tors a de­served win.

Lim­er­ick goal­keeper Tommy Hol­land made a su­perb save to deny Hale af­ter only six min­utes and the home goal­keeper pushed over a long-range ef­fort by Fisk four min­utes later.

The vis­i­tors fi­nally broke the dead­lock when Hale fired past Hol­land af­ter 24 min­utes .

A cross from Lim­er­ick’s Shane Tracy was headed on to Karl O’Sul­li­van but from six yards he shot over in what was the first real chance to draw level six min­utes af­ter the break. A Tracy free was pushed over the bar by Ger Do­herty in the Derry goal and Eoin Toal cleared.
