Lakewood A 3 Avondale Utd 5
2-1 up early in the second half following Jack Mellericks neat volley, Lakewood really got a lesson in the last 20mins of how life in the higher leagues is going to prove a lot tougher. Having rapidly moved up through the divisions in the previous seasons, little errors and lapses of concentration won’t go unpunished at this level and Avondale took each chance offered up.
Adam O’Sullivan put Lakewood 1 up before the break and a debut goal from the impressive Daniel Walsh made it 4-3 late on and as Lakewood chased the equaliser Avondale sealed it on the break in the final minutes. The returning Daragh OShea and Nathan Davis did well for home side.
