Late penalty denies Shels

Our Junior B footballers had the comeback of their lives only to see a penalty right on full time being converted to deny them the Co. title.

Shels were behind going to the break 1-08 to 0-05 and Horeswood kept their comfortable lead until ten minutes from the end. Gary Murphy of Shels and minor Simon Donohoe both majored to put Shels ahead. However this lead was shortlived when referee Seamus Whelan awarded a controversial penatly to Horeswood which they duly converted. Final score 2-11 to 2-09 in favour of the New Ross district side.
