WATCH: All the latest CCFL fixtures and results as Stradbally Town striker scores a screamer

Benny Lawlor

It was another very busy week on the local soccer front with games taking place across the county and outside of it involving Laois teams.

In Division 1, Stradbally Town enjoyed a 2-0 win over Banagher United in The Lawn on Sunday.

It was a win that moved the home side joint top of that particular Division with two wins from two games.

Stradbally dominated the early exchanges with Garry Comerford and Justin Lalor combining well to create a few half chances for the home side.

Some better finishing would’ve seen Stradbally hit the break in front but it also took a smart save from Wayne Comerford to keep the tie balanced.

Stradbally started the second half more up tempo and were unlucky not to get a penalty decision when Jody Dillon was felled in the box from a clumsy challenge from the Banagher centre half.

On the hour mark, a crossed ball from Ciaran O’Neill was rifled home by centre half Noel Delaney to give Stradbally a well deserved lead.

This goal put Banagher further on the backfoot and sustained pressure from Stradbally seen another crossed ball from O’Neill fall to Benny Lawlor who seen his half volley fly into the top corner of the Banagher goal.

A fantastic goal good enough to win any match! Stradbally then seen off the rest of the game comfortably enough.

You can check out Lawlor’s strike below and all of the results from the weekend gone by below.
