St. Joseph's FC 1 - 1 Nurney Villa

Nurney 1

St Joseph’s 1

Nurney went to St Joseph’s hoping to get the win that would have them finish ahead of Josephs in the table. Nurney started the game well and created chances with the aid of the wind. Nurney were unlucky not to take the lead on 11 minutes only being denied by some good goalkeeping. St Joseph’s got the opener against the run of play on 21 minutes with a goal from play. Nurney continued to press causing Joseph’s problems in mid field.

St Josephs continued to be dangerous and forced a great save from Thomas Bermingham to keep it at 1 nil. The half-finished 1 nil to Josephs. Nurney were against the wind now and started the half well and created some good opportunities to score. St Joseph’s absorbed the Nurney pressure well and created a great chance of their own on 70 minutes which required the Nurney keeper to be at his best to keep the score at the minimum. Nurney really on top now and got a well-deserved equaliser on 82 minutes when Ross Nolan hammered home the ball from inside the box. It was all Nurney for the remainder of the game but they couldn't get the elusive winner. Another great battle between these 2 teams who face each other next week in the cup quarter final. Best for Nurney were Evin Kearney, Thomas Bermingham, Luke Brennan and Ross Nolan.
