St Saviour’s 1; Dungarvan United 1
Two teams badly in need of the points had to settle for a share of the spoils in Ballybeg on Sunday morning last.
The home side had lost their previous four league games while Dungarvan were joint bottom of the standings alongside Bohemians on three points.
Those facts insured that this clash would always be a hard fought affair and that is how it panned out following the 90 minutes of play.
With Bohemians earning a point against Hibernians, this point could prove valuable for Dungarvan come the end of the season. St Saviour’s will be happy to have halted their slide but disappointed that they still have not won in the league since August.
The hosts got off to a dream start when scoring after four minutes. Brian Arrigan went on a run down the right flank from his full-back position, crossing to Stephen Dalton.
Dalton laid the ball into the path of Joe Twomey and he found the net from 20 yards with the aid of an upright.
Eleven minutes later, parity was restored. From a free-kick, Tommy Butler picked out Aidan Landers who headed the ball across the penalty area to Sean Hyslop who knocked the ball past Cleary and into the net.
Within three minutes, Saviour’s came close, with Joe Twomey’s long-range strike superbly saved by Dungarvan goalkeeper Alan Landers.
