into the Lovett crowd as the Lions punched their way into Dublin territory for
the first time. The good field position paid off as running back West Barnwell

run. 21-7 Dublin.

trys. 28-7 Dublin.
As if the Irish needed more help, Lovett fumbled the ensuing kickoff right into
the arms of a Dublin player. No reason to break form. Wilcher punched another
one in to make it 35-7 Dublin.
