River Valley Rangers 2, Spartak 3

Once again, Spartak were grateful to the goalscoring prowess of skipper Ger Byrne, who pounced for the winner from close range to clinch the points.

On a heavy pitch, the home side took the lead after some pressure. Jason Northey had already made a good stop, but could not prevent the score.

Amin Afsar went close before Niall Hanratty reacted quickest in the six yard box to equalise.

Ger Byrne sent Stuart Love away on the left and his first time cross was headed in by Amin Afsar. A collectors item.

A changeover caught out the Sky Blues and Ian Harmon could only propel the cross to his own net. Dave Browne risked all from another dangerous cross but fortunately his header went out for a corner.

Late on, Amin Afsar’s corner resulted in a scramble in the box, and the loose ball was fired in by an exultant Ger Byrne.
