Better late than never as Seans sink St Pats
SEAN O’Mahonys kicked four late points to snatch a dramatic victory over St Patricks.
With just two minutes remaining on the clock the visitors led by two points, while the O’Mahonys had just been reduced to 14 players after Stephen Kilcoyne was given his marching orders.
However, it was the O’Mahonys who took inspiration from that setback and responded in impressive fashion as they levelled through John O’Brien and Conor Finnegan before the same two players added injury-time points to give their side victory.
The first half began with the O’Mahonys in the ascendancy and after Stephen Fisher opened the scoring they followed up with three points from Stephen Kilcoyne.
The lead changed hands a couple more times before the break, however, it was the Pats who finished the half on top leading by 0-7 to 0-6.
The sides were level at nine points apiece at the end of the third quarter, but the Pats looked to have made the decisive move when Danny O’Connor and Keenan gave them a two-point advantage.
However, the Dundalk men dominated the closing stages as O’Brien and Finnegan fired over the last four scores to give their side an impressive victory, their second of the campaign.
