SAD SAINTS EXIT PART 1

It took a while for either team to settle as the game kicked-off. The first chance of note came after 8 minutes when Pats striker Andy Haran had his shot from just inside the box blocked following good work on the Pats right by Kevin Keenan.

Dundalk's first opportunity came on 21 minutes and Gary Clark should have done better. Ghosting in at the back post completely unmarked the winger's header was well wide.

Pats then went straight on the attack with Steve Fitzpatrick and Andy Haran finished off a fine move with a weak header into Donal Greene's hands.

Gary Clarke was Dundalk's best threat as again he found himself unmarked at the back post but Barry Woods' cross was just too high.

The lead for the Saints came in the 26th minute when a deep cross to the Dundalk back post found Kevin Keenan who rose highest and headed back across goal, Greene hesitated and Haran reacted quickest to nick the ball and leave himself with an empty goal, one nil to the Saints.

Pats had the chance to double their lead following a foul on Ciaran O'Connor but Haran's freekick flew straight into the waiting arms of Greene.

As the half closed, Graham Dowling came to Pats' rescue when he magnificently blocked a Woods' shot following Clarke's cross.

Pat's take a one nil lead in at the break.
