Bohemians 2 - St Patrick's Athletic 2


FORMER Bohemians striker Robbie Doyle may have ended the Gypsies title hopes with an injury time equaliser for St Patrick's Athletic at Dalymount Park last night.

Leading 2-0 as the game ticked towards full time, Bohemians looked to be strolling towards certain victory until Colm Foley slotted home a Keith Fahey cross from close range in the 89th minute.

And with the last kick of the game, Doyle made himself a hero at Pat's with a low free kick that flew through the crowded area and nestled in the net.

Bohemians were shell shocked having dominated the game up to that point with Tony Grant netting twice to give them what looked like an unassailable lead. He notched up his first goal of the game in the 15th minute when he stole in ahead of Pat's goalkeeper Chris Adamson to head home Bobby Ryan's teasing right wing cross.

And he made it 2-0 on the stroke of half time when, once again, he capitalised on Adamson s hesitation to head home Stephen Rice's cross at the near post.

Pat's did fight back in the second half with Matt Gregg being forced to save an Aidan O'Keeffe shot though Bohemians were still the better side with Damien Lynch hitting the crossbar with a long range drive before Colm Foley cleared a Stephen Ward shot off the line.
