LSL Senior Sunday
Greystones are quickly running out of games to try and stay alive in the most competitive amateur division in the land as the cross bar denied their keeper last minute hero status on Sunday.
The Wicklow side had the chance to get within one win of safety this afternoon, but failed to take it and now need two wins from their three remaining games to stay up.
Stones came out second best to Killester, who had previously looked like they were on the beach, but Gary Dempsey’s charges have the advantage of knowing what is needed to secure survival with UCD and Wayside Celtic done for the season.
Killester controlled this game from the off and it was Eoin mooney who gave them a single goal win after he had squandered two great chances before hand.
A great move involving a number of Killester players ended with Mooney collecting a Stephen Chambers through ball just inside the area before advancing and slotting home from eight yards on 45.
The hosts took that lead into the break and the second period coincided with an opening of the heavens, which took away from what was a good footballing game.
Alan Talbot did have the ball in the ‘Stones net just after the hour but the wide mans effort was ruled off side. Greystones huffed and puffed too try garner an equalizer from some where,but couldn’t find a way back into the tie.
The last play of the game saw the Wicklow men win a corner. The big keeper made the pilgrimage to the opposing box. As the corner dropped out of the sky there was only one winner but the visiting netminder seen his header smash of the cross bar and Greystones left Haddon empty handed.
