St Patricks Boys v Hanover Harps

St Patricks Boys 2 - 1 Hanover Harps

St. Patrick’s Boys 2

Hanover Harps 1 AET

Liam Byrne's thunderbolt in the final minute of extra time sent the hosts through to the quarter finals of the Shield as holders Hanover went out.

Pats settled quicker but failed to turn possession into chances and it was Harps that got the first real chance on 20 minutes as Craig Walker saved from Mark Davis. Pats eventually started to get in behind the Harps back line and really should have hit the front just before half time, Mark Delaney saw his effort well saved by O’Reilly before Ethan O’Neill, Delaney and Conor Clack somehow combined to miss a glorious chance with the goal at their mercy. That miss proved costly as Harps went up field and Ben Dorgan’s perfect pass teed up Mark Davis who calmly lobbed Walker to put Hanover one up on the stroke of half time.

The early stages of the second half saw little in the way scoring chances until Stephen Chalton and Simon O’Shea combined down the Harps left to find Dorgan in the box, but his effort went narrowly over. Pats began to exert more pressure as the half went on and were deservedly level with ten minutes left, Conor Clack finding the net after great work from Jamie Malone to take the game to extra time.

Extra time saw O’Reilly save from Clack before Sean Kavanagh headed a Mark Davis corner narrowly wide as the teams traded in missed chances. It looked destined for penalties until a loose ball found Byrne some 35 yards from goal, Byrne taking one touch to control before unleashing a rocket to the top corner to win the tie for St Pat’s and reward the efforts of Michael Condron, Michael Calvey, Liam Byrne and Conor Clack.

Best for Hanover were Stephen Chalton, Trevor O’Reilly and Ben Dorgan on his debut.
