Letterkenny Rovers 7 Lagan Harps 1

In a highly anticipated clash in the Finn Travel Division 3, Letterkenny Rovers faced off against Lagan Harps with the league title on the line. The conditions were challenging, with the cold and wet weather adding an extra element to the game.


The match kicked off with both teams showing early intent. In the 3rd minute, Jordan Nugent of Letterkenny Rovers had an opportunity but missed wide to the right. However, Lagan Harps quickly countered, with Jack McConnell finding the back of the net on the 7th minute against the run of play, giving Lagan the lead.


Letterkenny Rovers responded swiftly, with Adam Murphy leveling the score with a superb shot from 30 yards out in the 9th minute. The momentum shifted in Rovers' favor, as Conor O'Donnell scored twice in quick succession on the 20th minute and shortly after, extending Rovers' lead to 3-1.


Throughout the first half, Rovers dominated possession and created numerous scoring opportunities, putting Lagan's goalkeeper, Kai Brown, under constant pressure.

Despite Lagan's efforts, Rovers' defense, led by captain James 'Barlow' Gallagher, remained solid, limiting Lagan's chances.
