Nurney Villa AFC 1 - 0 Burrin Celtic AFC

In a hard fought match it was Nurney who would come out on top. Nurney took the lead in the 13th min with a superb finish to the top corner by Eamon Lalor. After this only minor chances were created by either team and most of Burrin's efforts were easily dealt with by Anthony Dermody in the Nurney goal who earned his 1st clean sheet of the year. Despite the best efforts of Lalor, Padraig 0'Brien, Shane Farrell and Cian Meaney to add a 2nd goal they were held out by a solid Burrin defence. Nurney Captain Manus Murphy done an excellent job of protecting his back line in the final quarter when asked to step into the role, stopping multiple attacks. Burrin Celtic came close to the equaliser in the closing minutes from a corner, the ball landed in the small box and with numerous player's from both teams having chances at it, it was some how cleared. The Nurney back line of Josh Kearney, Adam Kelly, Senan Dermody and Arron Coogan had great games to earn the win for Villa.
