Lisnaskea Rovers 3 Glebe 0

Josh McKenna, Eimhin Curran and Hayden Lynch all found the net to help Lisnaskea Rovers ease to victory over Glebe. The win takes Rovers up to mid-table and manager Anthony Smith hailed the performance as their best of the season.

“We had quite a young side out on Saturday but as a team they all played well, and it’s the first time all season that has happened,” said the manager. “I thought we deserved it. Once we got the first we played some good football and I couldn’t fault them. Instead of playing well for 45 minutes we played well for the whole 90 minutes. It was important to win with the way the other results went, and it was good to get the win after being beaten the previous week.”

Rovers made a bright start, and showed no after effects of the previous week’s defeat to Enniskillen Athletic, as they raced into an early lead. Olly Clerkin started the move from the back, combining passes with Sean Mullaney and Hayden Lynch. Lynch found Josh McKenna on the right, and he cut inside and unleased a low drive that found the bottom corner. With half an hour gone they moved further ahead of a Glebe team that are sitting at the bottom of the division two table. Lynch was again instrumental in the move, linking with Eimhin Curran who controlled the ball on his chest before volleying low into the bottom corner.

Glebe were still mounting the occasional threat, and Darren Graham saved well when the Glebe striker raced through on goal. Their best opportunity of the first half came in the closing minutes, but a header from close range drifted narrowly wide of the post to ensure Rovers maintained their lead at the break.

Glebe continued to press at the start of the second half, but with Adam McKenna, Dara O’Reilly and Shane Heaney all playing well Rovers soon increased their advantage when Lynch lobbed over the keeper to score his team’s third and ensure Rovers took the points
