2016/17 Pre-Season Friendly
Sacred Heart – 3
St Kevin’s Boys – 2
A late Darragh Monks’ wonder goal handed Sacred Heart a big pre-season friendly win against St Kevin’s Boys on Sunday morning.
Daniel Purdy opened the scoring with a 20 yard cracker which nestled into the top of the net to give the Hearts the early advantage.
That lead was then doubled when Sodiq Oguntola, a new signing from League of Ireland First Division side Shelbourne, scored from the penalty spot.
St Kevin’s never let the scoreline get the better of them, however, and the LSL new boys managed to haul the game level and hit back with two goals of their own.
However, it was to be Sacred Heart’s day and in the dying minutes Monks popped up with a fantastic effort which dipped over the ‘keeper into the top of the net to give the hosts the dramatic victory.
