THE GAME IN 60 SECONDS
Shane Foley has a bright future with the Strand Road club if this match is anything to go by. He produced four excellent saves, and the announcement of the young man as man of the match had teammates and supporters alike nodding in agreement after the game.
You could name any one of Foley’s saves, but in a tight game, Tommy Walsh’s fantastic goal, showcasing good handling, awareness and accuracy as he turned his marker and fired to the net, was the crucial score.
Most of the O’Rahillys players came out in different numbers for the second half having changed their jerseys due to the appalling conditions. It made for a journalist’s nightmare, but it was entirely forgivable. The weather was just that bad.
