HAKIN United kept their Division 1 title hopes alive on Tuesday night (Apr 12) as a last-gasp goal earned them a 1-1 draw against Goodwick.
Goodwick earned a 2-1 win when the sides last met in October and a large crowd gathered at the Obs anticipating another close game.
The league leaders, who hadn’t lost all season, took the lead after 13 minutes as Sion O’Sullivan scored after being set up by Dan James.
They could have been two goals up soon after but saw an effort bounce out off the crossbar.
Hakin looked to get themselves back in the game, knowing that they needed at least a point to keep their title hopes alive.
Both sides had chances in the second half and both keepers were kept busy.
It looked as if the game would finish 1-0 to Goodwick but Hakin had other ideas and they were awarded a free kick in injury time.
Leon Luby sent it into the box and the Goodwick keeper failed to gather and the ball bounced in sparking scenes of celebration amongst the players.
There was still time for Hakin to grab a winner but a foul in the box prevented them from doing so.
The game for Goodwick was their last of the season while Hakin still have four games left to play.
On Thursday, April 14, Hakin travel to Pennar and on Saturday, April 16, they travel to Clarbeston Road.
