Drogheda United 4 - St Patrick's Athletic 3

Dinny Corcoran settled this seven-goal thriller in Drogheda's favour with a spectacular 71st-minute winner.

St Pat's hit the front after only nine minutes courtesy of David McMillan's 30-yard effort, but Drogheda replied with two goals in a minute as Dave Rogers converted a penalty before Corcoran shot home from close range.

Dave McMillan made it 2-2 on the stroke of half-time with another fine finish, and Sean O'Connor gave them the lead on 48 minutes with a superb free-kick.

But Tiarnan Mulvenna equalised with yet another brilliant strike in the 53rd minute, before Corcoran beat Gary Rogers with a 40-yard half-volley - and there was still time for Drogheda's Gavin Brennan to hit the bar with an overhead kick.
