3 wins on the trot for Limerick footballers

Limerick footballers made it three wins on the spin last Saturday evening in the Fraher Fields dispatching their hosts by 0-14 to 0-8. Whilst three defeats from their opening three games denied any hopes of promotion, Billy Lee will be pleased to see how his side have responded.

Back to back home wins over London and Leitrim preceded Saturdays win.

Limerick got off to a bright start and found themselves 0-3 to 0-1 ahead after 11 minutes with points from James Naughton, Brian Fanning and Danny Neville. Neville employed at full-forward would cause Waterford a world of problem throughout the game, finishing with three from play.

Despite, dominating possession, Limerick could not convert this into scores and Waterford found themselves level at 5 points each heading into the half time break.

Waterford opened the scoring in the second half and seemed to have all the momentum as Limerick lost Peter Nash to a black card.

Brian Scanlon levelled the game with a long range free, before the sides exchanged further scores. However, Limerick eventually grabbed a hold of the game and scored seven points on the spin to clinch the victory in Dungarvan.

Limerick host Wicklow next weekend at 1pm in Newcastle in their final League game of 2017. Limerick find themselves in fourth place, a point behind Carlow who entertain Wexford next weekend. Limerick know that a third place finish is within their capabilities which seemed a distant thought after the opening three rounds.
