Town Luckless In Limerick

Fri 14th October 2011. Airtricity League Division 1.
Limerick FC 3-1 Athlone Town. Jackman Park.

Athlone finished their travels for the 2011 season with a 3-1 defeat against Limerick at Jackman Park.

For the opening half hour both sides played out an even enough game although Limerick proved to be a far more physical side.

The deadlock was eventually broken when Limerick captain Pat Purcell latched on to a corner to bundle the ball into the net at the back post. Limerick doubled their lead as half time closed in when another corner saw Athlone come undone and the unmarked Jeffery Judge fired home a volley from the edge of the box.

Town grabbed one back close to the hour mark when former St Peters duo Mark Sherlock and Noel McGee combined to catch the Limerick defence flat footed and get Athlone back into the game as McGee tapped in from close range.

Athlone kept the pressure on in search of an equaliser but for the third time a corner, and non existant marking, let Corie Tracey fire home at the back post to wrap up the win and keep Limericks promotion hopes alive.
