MSL Senior Premier
Ringmahon Rangers moved up to third in the Munster Senior League table thanks to last minute heroics from Kevin O’Regan.
The Mahon side leap froged in form Douglas Hall to end a two win for the first time in three attempts.
Douglas Hall shaded it in terms of chances, but Ringmahon missed a penalty and were thwarted by some brilliant goal keeping, but just when it looked like it would end all square O’Regan fired home free kick in the 89 minute.
Hall started well and Varian and Dunphy saw shots fly over the bar in the opening 20 minutes.
Mahon then had to scramble one off the line as Hall continued press.
A period of pressure towards the end of the half saw Ringmahon had chances to take the lead into the break first Sean Blake, who was promoted from the B side hit the bar with a header before Adrian O’Donovan was forced into a super save from a deflected free kick to keep the scores level.
Ringmahon dominated after the break and missed a number of chances to go ahead. Hall did look a danger on the break and Kevin Kelleher created a great chance for Dunphy but the keeper saved well.
On 71 minutes, Wilkinson received his marching orders for a second yellow just after the referee pointed to the spot.
It seemed advantage Ringmahon at time, but O’Donovan ensured Hall still had a chance of a point as he saved Pa O’Brien’s spot kick and the rebound was somehow sent onto the bar from four yards by Rob Coughlan.
When Ciaran Kearney wasted a great chance to put the home side in front on 88 minutes it looked like Hall would hang on for a point.
Sub O’Regan, however, had other ideas and he fired home the winner a minute later.
Hall’s Steve Barry had a great chance to level at death, but he slipped at the crucial moment and scooped over.
