Match Report

Treaty claim first win in two months

Jack Lynch’s moment of brilliance after just eight minutes proved to be the match winner as Treaty United finally found a win, after nearly two months without a maximum.

This coupled with an early header from Dean George, keeps Treaty in the promotion picture.

Thomas Oluwa’s 20th minute strike kept Athlone interested but the Midlanders never really got near the quality they had last week – when they dismissed Cobh Ramblers 5-2. There was chances either side of the interval for Oluwa but manager Dermot Lennon will be frustrated at the lack of fluency and how they stood off Treaty, particularly early on.

Tommy Barrett will have been desperate for a win, and despite a string of draws, Treaty needed the three points to reignite their second season.

A Marc Ludden throw after just six minuts was flicked home by Dean George, his second goal since the mid-season break. Lynch quickly doubled the advantage. With a free-kick on halfway, he spotted Andrew Skerritt off his line and send a first time effort directly to the net for his first of the season.

Lynch hasn’t played much with injury and work curtailing his involvement.

Oluwa pulled a goal back and it remained 2-1 at the interval. Athlone had the better second half chances. First Oluwa should have scored, when he missed from five yards following a point-blank save from Conor Winn.  The next talking point was a volley from Shane Barnes’ effort entering the final 15 minutes. This cannoned off the crossbar and back to the keeper, with the officials happy that the whole of the ball hadn’t crossed the line.

Treaty United held on for a relieving win for the Limerick outfit.  

  • 88'

    Treaty slowing the tempo, Athlone with fresh legs but little impact thus far.

  • 84'

    Enda Curran powers home a header but it is disallowed for a push.

  • 76'

    Shane Barnes with an effort that rebounds off the underside of the bar and back out to Winn, what a chance.

  • 65'

    Game now on a knife edge but Treaty still looking for their third of the evening.

  • 65'

    Game now on a knife edge but Treaty still looking for their third of the evening.

  • 62'

    Incredible work from George to win the ball back and then set up Enda Curran but another former Athlone Town man sends a half volley narrowly wide.

  • 51'

    What a chance for Oluwya! He turns a cross at Winn first time and gets the rebound and somehow from about 5 yards, he manages to put the effort wide.

  • 50'

    Athlone with a couple of half chances as they look to get back into the contest.

  • 47'

    Back underway and Treaty force a corner.

  • 43'

    Huge chance for Athlone as Winn comes and doesn't clear, but Oluwya on the turn is unable to spin his shot into the net, sending it inches wide.

  • 33'

    Melody goes close first for Treaty before Joel Coustrain sees his shot deflected for a corner. A yellow for Cian Kelly after a foul in the build-up, a good advantage played by Declan Toland.

  • 30'

    Treaty United comfortable enough since the goal. A few players unhappy with a couple of things on either side as the game is in a lull.

  • 20'

    Thomas Oluwya breaks onto a through ball and sends a shot easily beyond Conor Winn for a goal for Athlone. In fairness to Athlone, they've offered little but are now back in the contest.

  • 20'

    Great link up between Marc Ludden and Stephen Christopher, with the former firing over first time from just inside the area.

  • 15'

    This game has settled after a frantic opening, but Treaty will be trilled with the start. Goals haven't been free flowing this term, but a quick start is what the home support will love.

  • 6'

    Treaty take the lead, and it is their main goalscorer, Dean George. He nets against his former club, heading home a long throw into the box from Marc Ludden. The glancing effort bounces into the corner for the opener.

  • 8'

    Jack Lynch with a wonderful goal. Treaty have a free-kick on half way and Lynch spots the keeper off his line and from fully 50 yards, sails a shot into the net, without bouncing, the hosts in dreamland.

  • 4'

    Treaty starting on the front foot here, but little for Andrew Skerritt in the Athlone goal to worry about.

  • Good evening from the Mid-West, Treaty United face Athlone Town for the third time this season. Athlone buoyed by the win over Cobh Ramblers will be hoping to take their first win over Treaty.
