Lismore Advance after Beating Cobh Ramblers
Lismore AFC 1 Cobh Ramblers 0

Lismore started the better team and dominated the early exchanges and were rewarded in the ninth minute when Kevin O'Neill scored from a free kick 20yards out after David Skeehan was fouled. Lismore were good value for the lead and while Cobh came more into the game as the half wore on the home side deserved to be in front at the break.

Cobh upped the tempo in the second half and were on top early on but Lismore soon found there way again and were a constant threat with Bennett up front and Skeehan and Scanlon in midfield playing some fine football. Cobh threatened as the game entered the final quarter but never really created a clear cut chance as the Lismore defence held firm for a deserved cleansheet.

Well Done to Lismore who will play away against Corinthian Boys or Castlelack in the 3rd Round.
