The second-half didn’t begin too nicely for them both as earlier than it started workforce supervisor Declan Booner additionally acquired a straight pink card and was despatched to the stand.
Cillian Bonner and Paul Mohan exchanged factors however scores had been proving tough to get as wides grew to become the order of the day with 45 minutes gone., 2-04 to 1-05. Damian Og Kelly broke the mould with a fantastic level to go away one in it after which additional bother for Na Rossa as sub Mark Bonner acquired a black card to scale back them to 13 males for an additional ten minute spell.

We lastly acquired one other rating within the 57th minute when Damian Og Kelly introduced them stage once more, however Aiden McHugh’s free had NaRossa in entrance once more, 2-05 to 1-07.
What appeared a really very harsh name in opposition to J P McCready for over-carrying offered Joe McDade with a simple free to stage it up after which Conor Clarke kicked a fantastic level to offer Lisnaskea the lead and the win, 1-09 to 2-05.
Christian Bonner acquired one other Na Rossa pink card to carry that complete to 5 and Kai McGoldrick acquired a pink after including a yellow to his earlier black.
Given all that occurred dropping by just one level was a credit score to Na Rossa who performed a lot of the recreation with lower than 15 males but it surely received’t assist the frustration of the defeat.
