Walsh leads the way as O'Moore men make Treaty pay

Laois 2-12 Limerick 0-9

An impressive display from full-forward Gary Walsh helped Laois open their NFL Division 4 campaign with a win over Limerick in O'Moore Park.

Walsh hit 1-6 and set up Paul Kingston's late goal to inspire a Laois side containing six debutantes.

Laois lost centre-back and captain Stephen Attride to injury early on, but they were comfortably the better side in the opening minutes. They were dominating possession and territory, but Limerick's numbers in defence were making it difficult to find a way through.

After Gary Walsh stroked over his second of the half, and Laois lead 0-4 to 0-1 after 28 minutes, and fully deserved the lead. Billy Lee's charges weren't offering much, but briefly sprung to life when two points from Jamie Lee in as many minutes got them back within one against the run of play.

Another free from Walsh, however, meant Laois led by two at the interval, 0-5 to 0-3.

And soon after the restart Jamie Lee's fourth point had the Laois crowd getting nervous. However, Gary Walsh soon assuaged any fears when his sweetly struck shot from 12 yards out flew into the top corner.

Limerick steeled themselves well, and were unlucky when Jamie Lee's shot for goal hit the post.

That was as close as they came though, as some excellent points by Gary Walsh put Laois in the clear, and then Paul Kingston's injury time goal put the seal on a deserved nine-point victory for the home side on the night.

Scorers - Laois: G Walsh 1-6 (4f); P Kingston 1-0; E Lowry 0-3; D O'Reilly 0-2; A Dowling 0-1. Limerick: J Lee 0-4 (1f); S O'Dea, J Liston, S O'Carroll, S McSweeney (f), K Daly 0-1 each.
