In an unusually quiet Sunday for the Carlow soccer league, just the one Laois team was in action.
Wolfhill Atheltic were looking to add a cup title to the Division 3 league title that they won a few weeks ago but they came up short against Nurney Villa B.
Seán Meaney gave the Laois men the lead early on but they couldn’t hold on.
Nurney scored twice from corners to take the lead and although Wolfhill through everything at them, they just couldn’t find the equaliser.
