Allianz NHL Div 4 – Round IV
Leitrim 1 -08
Leitrim and Longford played out a very disappointing Allianz NHL Division 4 in Pearse Park, Longford on Sunday last.
scores were level on a number of occasions early on and little by little Longford began to pull clear and when Conor Burns got a red card after an altercation with his opponent, Leitrim were trailing and facing an uphill battle and went in at half time 7 points down.
On resuming, Leitrim upped their game but missed a number of chances early on. The game then turned into a very scrappy affair and Longford duly took the honours with some long range points. Leitrim badly missed Clement Cunniffe through injury.
Leitrim: Paul McKiernan, Kevin McGrath, Niall Guckian, Shane Guckian, Seán McWeeney, Michael Poniard, Kieran Boyle, Vincent McDermott, Keith Connolly, Paraic McWeeney, Ian Bermingham, Conor Burns, Michael Burns, Mark Hayes, Liam Burns, Subs Gary Coone for Mick Burns, David Tiernan for Kieran Boyle(inj), Morgan Quinn for P.
