Cabinteely 1, Spartak 2

An opportunist Ger Byrne goal snatched victory in the dying moments, just when it seemed a draw was inevitable.

Spartk had the best of the opening exchanges, and Cian Stenson missed a presentable opportunity before Stuart Love nodded in Dave Browne’s assist.

Both sides missed good chances before the interval, but it remained 1-0 to the Sky Blues.

The home side mounted an onslaught in the second period, and equalised after some sustained pressure.

A second yellow saw Spartak reduce to 10 men for the final quarter.

Spartak, however, defended brilliantly dug in and fought back for a winning score right at the death.
