Hard Fought Game

Lurgan 05’s played Armagh City at Lurgan in the League on Saturday 8th January 2022. Lurgan had a few opportunities early on when Daniel Patterson and Ryan Lee Brown made good runs through the middle but they weren’t able to convert the chances on this occasion. Eoghan McMahon had a long range shot that went wide but, overall, the first half was very scrappy with little goal mouth activity and no goals for either side at half time.

In the second half, Jake Agnew made an excellent save down to his right to deny Armagh. Lurgan then went close from a corner but Daniel Patterson’s header went over. Liam Campbell almost scored for Lurgan when Daniel Patterson crossed and Liam flicked the ball nicely past the keeper but unluckily the ball hit the underside of the bar and bounced away. Late in the game, Armagh City won a penalty and converted to take the lead 1-0.

For Lurgan, the defence had a good game and the team battled hard in a tight match which had very few chances but Armagh ran out winners 1-0.
