Johnny Waters’ goal deep in added time saw Harps edge out St Pat’s to maintain their 100% start to the season.

The opening quarter saw Graham Delaney and Simon O’Shea both go close for Hanover while Gearoid Cuddihy brought an excellent save out of Kevin Power in the Harps goal. As the half wore on Hanover began to impose themselves on the game and almost got the lead on the stroke of half time when Sean Kavanagh just failed to get a touch on Alan Shaw’s free kick when any touch would surely have resulted in a goal.

The second half again saw Harps with the best of the chances, Delaney heading narrowly over from a Mark Davis cross before O’Shea saw his effort tipped onto the post and out for a corner. Pat’s were beginning to tire but the introduction of Kian Kerr and Cian Cleary gave them an energy boost and Power was again called on to make an excellent stop from Conor Clack. With time running out Harps began to exert some serious pressure. Loud appeals for a penalty fell on deaf ears before substitute Waters somehow shot wide from six yards on 90 minutes. Pat’s thought they had done enough for a point but in the third and final minute of added time Delaney was fouled and from Phil Neenan’s free kick Waters pounced to win the game for Harps and reward the efforts of Simon O’Shea, Jason Murphy, Mark Davis and Niall Swan.

Best for St Pat’s included John O’Neill, Harry Taylor and Mick Condron.
