Our reporter took on this game on a cold saturday afternoon in conna. Valley, the league leaders went into the game as favourites but Lismore gave Valley a tough game in the home fixture before Christmas when Valley won 3-2 in a very close contest. Valley started the brighter and Harry Draper, Jack Murphy and Jake O'Brien had chances in the first 20 minutes. Lismore settled into the game and had a shot hit the crossbar after 30 minutes. It was a tight battle in midfield with David McDonnell and Tom Hartnett from Valley combining well. The game was evenly ties at 0-0 at half time. The second half was another tight affair, with Valley coming close from a number of corners. The breakkthrough for Valley came with 20 minutes played in the second half when some fine work by James Hayes on the right hand side put in Dan who slotted home. Kyle Wallace played very well in the Valley defence with some great support from Stephen Roche, Ethan Scotthin and Cillian Fitzpatrick. Lismore then dominated the next 10 minutes and were very unlucky not to score when Valley keeper Shane martin somehow kept out a number of close shots from Lismore. It as from a a shot by lismore off the Valley crossbar that the game was decided. Valley broke quickly and a lovely ball over the top from David McD was nicely finished by Dan for his second. Valley then had a number of other chances to add to their two goal tally but the Lismore keeper was in good form. Final Score: Valley 2-0 Lismore.
