Illies Res                       0

Gleneely Res                3

Early exchanges were fairly even with both keepers having little to do. The opening goal came on 25 minutes when Illies lost possession in their own half and was quickly seized upon by Corey O’Brien to fire to the bottom right hand corner of the net. Gleneely went further ahead ten minutes later  when a lengthy goalmouth scramble eventually fell to Nathan McLaughlin to shoot low to the net from eight yards. Illies started the second half brightly looking for an early goal to bring them back into the game. However Gleneely broke from defence 10 minutes in to score the vital third goal through Nathan McLaughlin. The highlights of the match thereafter were a succession of fantastic saves by Illies underage goalkeeper Kevin Gallagher. Gleneely went on to see the game out to remain in contention for league honours
