Lifford kept their title hopes alive with this narrow victory at An Screaban. The game got off to a whirlwind start with two goals in the first four minutes.
The home team were first off the mark in thirty seconds, good build up play involving Chris Porter, Colin Ferry and Jamie Boyle ended with Tommy Diver firing home. Three minute later, Lifford had drawn level, with the home team appealing for offside, Alan Gethins ran on to shoot past the keeper.
Gweedore went ahead on forty minutes when a Chris Porter free came off the crossbar and was tapped home by Jamie Boyle. The home side should have been two ahead twenty minutes into the second half when Colin Ferry broke through but his chip over the keeper drifted wide of the post.
Gweedore were made to pay a minute later as Alan Gethins again found the net. They took the lead on seventy minute with a fine individual goal by David Gethins. Try as they might Gweedore were unable to break down the visitor’s defence.
Best for Gweedore Tommy Diver and David McGee. Good team effort by Lifford.
