Bagenalstown AFC 2 - 1 Nurney Villa

Bagenalstown 2

Nurney Villa 1

Despite dominating the game for long periods Nurney went down to parish neighbours, Bagenalstown in the 1st round of the shield. The opening exchanges were even enough although Val Fleming should have done more with a free header 8yards from the Bagenalstown goal. In the 27th minute Bagenalstown went ahead when the Nurney keeper mishandled a Keith McDonald free kick and the ball was bundled home by Tommy Lynch. Another goalkeeping error saw Bagenalstown go 2 up as the ball was put into an empty goal after 37 minutes by Lynch.

They went in 2-0 at half-time.

It was all one-way traffic in the 2nd half as Nurney laid siege on the Bagenalstown goal but chances were wasted as Dermot Maher headed over and John Townsend's header hit the bar, Michael Murphy also came close with a few shots from outside the box before he set up Val Fleming to head home in the 75th minute. Nurney pressed hard and had a goal disallowed as Bagenalstown clung on for victory.
