GALWAY UTD 1 (Owen McCormack 94′)
SHELBOURNE 2 (Adam Evans 55′, James English 58′ [pen] )
Goals from Adam Evans and James English seal three points at Eamonn Deacy Park as Shels continue impressive form!
Shelbourne solidified their spot in the playoffs as two goals in three minutes sealed a valuable three points against a below-par Galway United.
Adam Evans put his side one up on 55 minutes when he got onto a ball over the top before calmly slotting home past Tadgh Ryan, while just two minutes later the Dublin side would double their lead courtesy of a penalty from James English.
Ryan would keep the score respectable when making great saves late on, denying English twice from close range in quick succession before bravely coming out of his goal to stop Jordan Buckley from hitting into an empty net.
The Tribesmen would bag what would be no more than a consolation on 94 minutes when Eoin McCormack blasted home a free from the edge of the box in what was the only highlight on a night to forget for the home side
