Lismire were comprehensively defeated by Deel Rovers (Milford) in the County Junior B Football Championship first round game at Charleville this evening.  Lismire started well scoring the first point, but Deel Rovers responded with a goal and never lost the lead.  Several save by Seanie Duggan, and the intervention of the post and crossbar on a number of occasions kept the score down, but Lismire were unable to get close and trailed by 1-8 to 0-3 at half time.  The second half saw Lismire unable to close the gap and a second Deel Rovers goal killed of any hope of a revival.  A Brian O'Callaghan goal came too late to boost Lismire and the game finished in defeat for Lismire who have a bye in the second (losers round) and still advance to round 3.
