Brookeborough 0-07 Lisnaskea 8-11

Lisnaskea continued their ruthless streak in front of goal as they netted eight times away to Brookeborough in a dominant performance.

A hat-trick from Justy McDade alongside goals from Mark Óg Kelly, Hayden Lynch and Ethan McCaffrey completed the Emmets rout as they made it three wins and a draw in 2B of the Club Players’ Competition.

The result sees John Reihill’s side top the group on points difference, over second-place Teemore, meaning they will play Newtownbutler at Emmet Park on Friday evening in the Division Two first-place play-off game.

Newtownbutler sealed their place with a five-point win away to Tempo last Friday.

“We knew we had to win by a considerable amount so we got the lads to keep applying pressure," said manager Reihill.

"In the second half, we started slowly, not scoring much in the first 10 minutes then got a lucky enough rebound to score a goal.

"It was enough to get us into the play-off game against ‘Newtown on Friday. Very pleased to be in the position considering we had Teemore and St. Pat's in the group.

"We secured two points and now face a good young footballing side in Newtownbutler."

Meanwhile, Brookeborough will now face Coa in the fourth-place play-off game with the O’Dwyers playing at home.

“Lisnaskea were strong,” said Brookeborough manager Donal Boyle after the game.

“We had eight or nine of our senior players either missing or injured and didn’t want to risk it as it was basically a dead rubber. We had a lot of debutants, it was a baptism of fire for a few.”

Lisnaskea got off to the ideal start with a goal in the opening moments as Justy McDade opened his account for the evening by continuing his run into the square and finding the net with a neat finish.

Two quick points followed before the away side were awarded a penalty that was again despatched by McDade.

Lisnaskea would three more goals before halftime as they took in a 5-06 to 0-04 advantage with McDade completing his hat-trick and adding a free with goals also coming via Kelly and Lynch.

All of the host's scores came from frees with Dylan Bogue (3) and Eoin McCarney on target.

After a cagey opening 10 minutes in the second half with no scores for either side, Lisnaskea then added a sixth goal as a shot that came off the post fell for Kelly who finished.

Goals from McCaffrey would sure up the win Brookeborough’s final three points being scored by McCarney, Rory Greene and Bogue.
