Spartak 2, Sallynoggin 2

An injection of experience and craft from some of the Spartak seniors saw Spartak dominate a game against Sallynoggin. Three big calls went against the Sky Blues. A Ciaran Keane goal was incorrectly disallowed for offside; Spartak had the ball over the line but the ref did not agree; and the first Sallynoggin goal was clearly offside.

All these factors aside, this was a most satisfactory performance. A stunning opening goal by Terry Fallon, who controlled, turned and fired over the keeper from 35 yards, was the highlight, while a late equaliser when Sean Doyle forced in Conor Callis’s blocked effort was well deserved.

The visitors took an undeserved lead when Spartak failed to deal with a long ball, but Spartak came back relentlessly to gain a point.

The Sky Blues can reflect on a fourth place finish, product of a late surge which saw just one defeat in the last half dozen matches.
