Brennan goal lands points for St Pat’s
Limerick paid a high price for wasting goalscoring chances as a 20-yard strike by Ryan Brennan after 72 minutes gave St Patrick’s three points on the road at the Markets Field last night.
Referee Ray Matthews booked three Limerick players and one from St Patrick’s in a five-minute spell. Chances fell to Shane Duggan (2) and Colm Walsh-O’Loghlen who was put through by Danny Morrissey. St Patrick’s almost grabbed the lead after 34 minutes when a dipping effort by Jake Keegan was just over. A superb save by Barry Murphy denied Will Fitzgerald after 44 minutes.
Barry Murphy in the visiting goal made a superb save to deny Limerick substitute Karl O’Sullivan two minutes after Ryan Brennan’s goal.
