Lissan suffered a minor setback in their Intermediate league campaign with back to back defeats in the space of 5 days against Swatragh and Ballerin. Against Swatragh Lissan had began brightly and led by 4 points at the break (3-1 to 1-3). Lissan were unable to sustain their superiority after the break as the visitors began the second half in dominant fashion and were level on the scoreboard within 5 minutes – aided by an early point in addition to their second converted penalty of the game. Lissan responded with points from Darren Donnelly and Paddy Coey to reduce the gap to 3 points (3-7 to 3-4). However, Swatragh finished with a flourish and were awarded their third penalty of the game in injury time which was converted to give the visitors a 6 point victory. Final Score Lissan 3-4, Swatragh 4-7.
In a demanding fixture schedule – resulting in 4 games in 11 days – Lissan travelled to Sarsfields Ballerin on Wednesday. Lissan enjoyed success against their North Derry counterparts last season. Unfortunately, it was a depleted Lissan team that made the journey to Ballerin for the latest league encounter. The early loss of Oran Donnelly added to the woes as Lissan fell to a disappointing 6 point defeat. Final Score Ballerin 1-16, Lissan 1-10. Lissan will aim to return to winning ways when they host Claudy in the league on Sunday 10th June. Throw in for the reserve game will be 2pm and the Seniors at 3:30pm. All support for the team is appreciated.
