WESTERN INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONS 2016.
Lismore Intermediate team took to Fraher Field on Sat evening last Oct 22nd in the Western Final of the Intermediate Championship taking on Modeligo. Beating Modeligo was not going to be an easy task as we knew from the qualifers that they were strong contenders for the 2016 title. In the first min of the game Lismore had to make a blood substitution bring on Sean Reaney for Micheal Fitzgerald. Our first score came on the 6th min from a free taken by Mce Shanahan. Saves by the Modeligo keeper deprived Lismore of goals first by Dan and then by Jack Prendergast. Modeligo pointed in the 8th min but was followed sharply by a pt from Jack Prendergast and another from Jordan Shanahan after he had been denied a goal with the woodwork saving Modeligo yet again. Scoreboard on 11 mins read 3 pts to 2pts to Modeligo. A good pass from Peter O keeffe to John Prendergast gave him a fine pt which he took well, this was followed by another from the stick of Dan. Lismore were given a free which dropped sweetly in round the square where Dan met it with an overhead pull and hit the Modeligo net. Some good play from the Lismore team resulted in more pts been added to the scoreboard. Peter O Keeffe scored a pt just before half time. Half time score Lismore 1 11 to Modeligo 0 06. Modeligo clawed back two pts when Jordan Shanahan dropped the sliotar in the Modeligo goalmouth which in turn was pulled upon by Dan and buried to the back of net. Another pass resulted in a pt from Jack. Modeligo were given a free which resulted in a goal now 1 11 to 2 14. Jordan Shanahan was subbed in the 57th min and Brian Bennett came on instead. Constant pressure from Modeligo saw the Lismore backline up their game and clear their lines to prevent them from scoring. Injury time pervailed and on the 65th min the referee blew the whistle and Lismore were Western Intermediate Champions for 2016. Final score Lismore 2 15 Modeligo 1 11. Lismore scores on the night came from Mce Shanahan 06pts, Jack Prendergast 03pts, Jordan Shanahan 01pt, John Prendergast 02 pts, Dan Shanahan 2- 02, Peter O Keeffe 01pt.
