AUL Premier A
Kilbarrack came back from the dead against Real Transilvania to close the gap on league leaders Sheriff YC to just three points.
United produced a come from behind win in the Leinster Junior Cup last weekend, but produced an even more impressive comeback in the league on Sunday afternoon.
Kilbarrack found themselves trailing by two goal at half time and with top scorers Rory O’Connor and Eoin Folwer both leaving the pitch injured hopes of a result looked slim.
However the hosts produced a brilliant second half performance to over turn the deficit and secure three points.
Eamon Moylahan was the hero of the hour, the former Home Farm and Tolka Rovers striker scoring a late winner.
Real Transilvania came out of the blocks flying and were a goal to the good as early as eight minutes. Claudiu Bunea broke the deadlock and put the visitors in front.
Before 15 minutes had past both Fowler and O’Connor withdrew through injury and Kilbarrack looked somewhat disorientated as a result.
Alex Pleniceanu then doubled Transilvania lead and the visitors looked in three point pole by half time.
However, the home side produced a brilliant second 45. First Redser Brady pulled one back from the spot, before Kevin Dunne, a goal scoring sub the week before made two goals in two games to level the tie.
The experienced Moylahan then completed the comeback with a late winner as Kilbarrack stayed within touching distance of rivals Sheriff.
