THE GAME IN 60 SECONDS
There wasn’t any one player who impacted on proceedings for a prolonged period of play. Stefan Okunbor intermittently was seen to good effect for the winners while Niall Sheehy also kicked some good scores. However, during the period in the game between the 25th and 40th minutes, when the eventual outcome was ultimately decided, goal scorer David O’Callaghan made the most significant impact.
Probably two, both involving goals at opposite ends. Mark Buckley’s disallowed goal, and David O Callaghan’s second green flag followed in quick succession early in the second half. The advantage rule is hugely beneficial, but it can be difficult to adjudicate where the advantage ends. A Shannon Rangers goal at that stage might have sparked a revival, but O’Callaghan’s second strike firmly put paid to any chance of that.
It’s been ongoing for some time, and, it was back on the agenda last weekend. Such has been the level of the Shannon Rangers performances in successive seasons that joining with Feale Rangers is now, again, the subject of opinion and debate. However, given their display against St Kierans last Sunday Feale Rangers might feel, with some justification that they are capable of making an impact on their own.
