Nurney Villa 0 - 3 Round Tower Rovers

This game saw Round Tower Rovers come away with a good away win in Nurney, to pick up all 3 points at the first time of asking. Nurney started well and put the Rovers defence under pressure early, but Round Tower held out well before taking the lead after 25 minutes; With the Nurney goalkeeper dropping the ball from a brilliant delivery from a corner kick, leaving the ball to be put over the line by Rovers. Nurney fought hard for an equaliser, but Rovers remained too strong, with William Oxley pushing away a free kick from the edge of the box, denying a certain goal for Nurney. Rovers then increased their lead just before half-time with a second goal created by a precision perfect weighted ball from Ben O'Reilly, making it 2-0 to Round Tower at the break.

In the second half, Nurney worked hard and played some excellent football to put Round Tower under pressure at times, with some great play throughout the game from Nurney's Martin Mullins, Rian Farrell and Joe Byrne. But Nurney could not break down the Rovers defence of Colm Byrne, Ben Dunne, Enda Butler and James Fitzgerald, who defended excellently and looked determined to keep a clean sheet. And the game was over in the 88th minute when Rovers added their third goal when Enda Butler headed home from a Round Tower set-piece, capping off a great away performance and putting in a man of the match display.
