LSL Senior Sunday 1
Dean Giffney scored the goal that ensures both Verona and Dublin Bus will compete in the LSL second tier next season.
Both sides went into the Coldcut hosted clash needing points for very differing reasons. Verona desperate for a result to ensure they beat the drop, while Dublin Bus needed the win to earn promotion to the top flight.
As it turned out Verona got the result they wanted and benefited from Home Farm’s defeat of Arklow meaning they secured safety and Leixlip rather than Dublin Bus will return to Senior Sunday.
Dublin Bus got off to a great start as Geoff Doyle, whose brothers Paul (coach) and Graham (player) celebrated Leinster Junior Cup success on the same day, gave them the lead.
However, with half time closing in Verona were awarded a penalty. Up stepped Giffney and he found the net, registering a crucial strike for his side in the process.
The Bus pushed and pushed for a winner but Verona held out to survive and deny the Coldcut side promotion.
