ACFL Div 1 Rossa v Rasharkin
2nd May 2012

McNeill’s injury time penalty kick bags both points for St.Mary’s


With five minutes remaining on the clock the two sides had pulled level for the second time and everyone at Shaws Road assumed the points would be shared. However, Rossa’s superb second half substitute Donal Armstrong split the posts from a brilliant free out on the wing to give the home side full advantage. As the clock ticked into injury time Rasharkin looked to be running out of time and luck, but match referee Danny O’Neill pointed to the penalty spot following a foot block inside the square. Eamon McNeill teed up his second penalty as players and supporters held their breath, the ice cool forward stepped up and fired the ball passed the helpless Kevin McParland on the Rossa line for the second time to ensure both league points would be coming back to Dreen.
