McGee Brace Knocks Harps Out Of Tune

Friday 16th March 2012. Airtricity League Division 1
Athlone Town 2-0 Finn Harps. Athlone Town Stadium.

A second half brace from Athlone Town captain Noel McGee gave Athlone all 3 points in difficult conditions in Lissywollen.

With the pitch resembling more of a mud bath than a football pitch, credit must go to the voulenteers who worked tiresly on the pitch throughout the day to ensure the game could go ahead.

Overall Harps looked the stronger of the two sides in the first half but fortunately for Athlone, new signing Pat Jennings was in top form on his home debut.

In the second half Athlone had a bit more bit about them to put Harps under pressure and with 20 minutes to go their improved play was rewarded when Mark Sherlock burst through the Finn Harps defence and just as everyone though he was going to pull the trigger he squared the ball to the waiting Noel McGee who made no mistake from close range.

Ten minutes later McGee doubled his tally when he beat Ciaran Gallagher with a fantastic free kick from the edge of the area to wrap up all 3 points for Athlone.
