The inclusion of a number of Slovakian players in their squad helped Sneem Santos Overcome the challenge of Killorglin FC in the battle to see who would go up as champions of Division 2A at Mounthawk Park on Sunday.  The standard of football played by both sides was excellent and Santos took the lead from a Jimmy O’Brien penalty after he was taken down in the box after thirty six minutes of hectic play. Killorglin never gave up trying and got a deserved equaliser in the 56th minute when Eamon Carey won the aerial battle with the Sneem keeper by rising highest to head the ball to the net. The winning goal came from another Jimmy O’Brien penalty in the 79th minute and as we entered into the second minute of added time Killorglin were denied on three occasions firstly by the Sneem keeper, then the upright and finally a defender all in fifteen seconds.
