A game of two corners – Paul Owens

A bag of air was impeccably pinged
Disarray in Glenavon’s box
As Paul Owens took hold of the wind

Ex Carrick lofted Davy O’Hare
Limavady man’s brace all the talk
Carbon copy the Lurgan Blues despair

“Second was a wee bit lucky”
“Unluckily Davy got a touch there”
When the alert goalie thwarted three
