LSL Division 1
Newbridge started the second half on the front foot and took the lead in the 54th minute when Paddy Kavanagh punished some sloppy defending in ruthless fashion with a good finish that beat Saints goalkeeper Warren Fee. The Saints equalised a minute later when Martin O' Neill scored after he was on the end of great flick on from Lancaster's corner. O Neill was inspirational and he had another great game in the Saints midfield. Lancaster scored his fourth league goal in the season and it was controversial, Lancaster flicked the ball over the defence and scored with a superb finish and despite the linesman's flag up for offside the goal stood, Newbridge contested the decision but David Somers was not interfering with play and the Saints had the lead.
Newbridge threw everything at the Saints searching for an equaliser but the league leaders held firm and the fantastic run continues. The Saints last defeat was on the 2nd of November at home to Cherry Orchard and that's the only league defeat.
It wasn't pretty but it doesn't have to be. It's all about the three points.
