Laurelvale Seconds 0 Lurgan BBOB Seconds 2

LAST Wednesday evening Lurgan BBOB Seconds recorded their third successive victory in a hard fought encounter with Laurelvale.

In a game dominated by well organised defences the Lurgan side were dealt an early blow when goalkeeper Chris Baird was forced to leave the field with a broken foot but Stephen Hewitt stepped into goals and produced an accomplished performance.

Playing on a difficult, bumpy pitch both teams worked hard but chances were at a minimum. With five minutes remaining Alan Dowey’s inswinging corner evaded the Laurelvale goalkeeper and found the net to give the visitors the lead. In the dying seconds another Dowey corner was headed in by Johnny Bann to secure an important victory for BBOB.

Team: C Baird, Alex Dowey, S Dowey, D Wilson, J Willis, B Nelson, Alan Dowey, M Wheatley, S Russell, P Moutray, W Irvine. Subs: S Hewitt, B Mullen, J Bann.
