2018-03-09 Cabinteely v Cobh

A week 2 match in the League of Ireland 1st Division between Cabinteely FC and Cobh Ramblers FC got off to a startling pace; Cabinteely could have had a perfect start as a penalty was awarded for a handball, however Cabo’s 2017’s top goal scorer Marty Waters failed to convert. Cobh then had their own chance from the spot at the other end as a forward was fouled in the box; but the resulting penalty flew wide off the post. The referee injured himself on 25 minutes and subbed himself off for the fourth official. On 30 minutes the visitors went ahead as Adam O’Sullivan headed home at the far post from a good centre. Cabinteely enjoyed more of the possession but could not find that crucial touch to get back level in the match as an inspirational performance by Cobh captain Paul Hunt denied Cabo as he pulled off a string of fine saves to keep a well earned clean sheet.
