Listry Seniors

Listry beat neighbours Beaufort in this div 3 county league match played in Beaufort on Sat evening last. This was the first meeting of these clubs in over 25 years and there was a huge interest in the outcome. The home side got of to the better start and were leading 3 pts to nil after 15 minutes. Listry came more into the game in the second quarter and actually drew level but Beaufort again went on to score 2 points to lead at the break 0-5 to 0-3. Beaufort should probably have been further ahead at this stage but a wonderful display by the Listry full back line of Danny Wrenn, Kieran Kennedy and Kevin Courtney in breaking up many attacks kept Listry in the game. Once Listry got to grips with the short kick outs they eventually took control of the game and when Billy O Brien pounced to crash a great ball to the net to bring them level they went on to win on the score 1-10 to 0-9. This victory keeps Listry in second place in the table but they face table toppers Desmonds in the next round in Faha on Sat evening at 7-30.
