Leixlip 0 , Spartak 1

A vital away win secured with a fine goal by Conor Brady after Owen Marron’s persistence and speed had created the opportunity.

Spartak began the game strongly, and Dylan Scanlon had a very early chance which he screwed wide.

Leixlip then had a good chance after a free unnecessarily conceded gave them a shooting opportunity from a good position. Spartak got a slice of luck as the shot rebounded from the woodwork into the grateful arms of Andy Hughes.

After the Spartak breakthrough, Leixlip piled on the pressure, pushing men forward, and it took some brave defending from Spartak to prevent an equaliser. In particular a goalmouth scramble saw a series of great blocks to deny the hosts.

As pressure mounted, Spartak tried to break out, but were given offside ten yards inside their own half. Admittedly there was a lack of VAR to assist the ref.

Three points and a clean sheet.
