Lannleire win again

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

LANNLEIRE share top spot in Di­vi­sion 3 with their par­ish ri­vals St. Kevins fol­low­ing a fine win away to West­erns on Sun­day.

Bri­ain McGuin­ness got the away side’s open­ing score and they were on top for much of the high carv­ing out a four-point cush­ion.

West­erns got a boost when a Tommy Durnin free fell short but was punched to the Lannleire net by Jack Ogle. How­ever, Lannleire fin­ished the half with three points, two from Colin Mur­phy and one from Kil­lian Gre­gory, go­ing in at the break lead­ing 0-9 to 1-2

Tommy Durnin pointed a free for West­erns five min­utes into the sec­ond half but a Colin Mur­phy free on 37 min­utes kept the gap at four points. A fur­ther Tommy Durnin free on 39 min­utes did re­duce the deficit to three points. A strong and de­ter­mined Lannleire side pre­vented West­erns adding to their sec­ond half tally un­til Tommy Durnin pointed one minute from full time but by that stage Lannleire cap­tain, Paul Cal­lan had made the points safe for his team with his sec­ond score from play on 56 min­utes.
