Greene scores twice in St Pat's win
28 Mar 2015 23:11
Limerick FC 1-2 St Patrick's Athletic
-
Aaron Greene was the hero for St Patrick’s Athletic as he bagged a brace in a 2-1 SSE Airtricity League Premier Division victory over winless Limerick FC at a windy Jackman Park in front of just 425 spectators.
-
Given Dundalk’s perfect start to the season, Liam Buckley’s charges knew a win was required to keep the gap manageable and they took the lead on the half-hour mark.
-
Killian Brennan played a near-post corner to the feet of Chris Forrester, whose close-range effort was stopped by Limerick keeper Conor O’Donnell.
-
A second effort from Forrester was also blocked, and after a scramble in the area, it was Greene who poked the ball home from six yards out.
-
Pat’s made it 2-0 in the 73rd minute with a moment of magic from Greene as his first-time chip from the edge of the area made the game safe.
-
However, a Limerick side that have improved markedly since shipping two heavy early season beatings got one back almost immediately.
-
Ian Turner was felled by Kenny Browne on the edge of the area but picked himself up to rifle the resultant free-kick low and hard into the back of the Conor O’Malley’s net.
-
Martin Russell’s men tried to push on for the equaliser but Pat’s used their experience to slow down the play and held out for the 2-1 victory.
