Div3 League Leighlin 1-5 Rathvilly 2-12

 

Leighlin’s winning run was halted abruptly in Rathvilly Tuesday night

as the home side romped to a ten point victory.

 

Rathvilly had 1-1 on the board within minutes of the off before Mick

Nevin got Leighlin going with a free.

 

Rathvilly added two more points but Leighlin were

handed a lifeline when Lee Conran audaciously chipped the keeper

soccer style on 25 minutes and impressive midfielder Sean Brennan

cut the gap to a point before the break as Leighlin trailed

1-3 to 1-2 at half time.

 

Conran had Leighlin level shortly after the restart but Rathvilly

blitzed into a 2-9 to 1-3 lead by the end of the third quarter with

Stephen Murphy nailing the game changing goal.

 

Conran and Adrian Flames Dermody got two late scores but that

was as good as it got as Rathvilly cruised to a ten point win.
