Shanahan Shoots Dundalk Into Quarter-Finals

November 8, 2018

Gary Shanahan scored in both halves as Dundalk came from behind to seal their place in the EA SPORTS Cup quarter-finals with a 2-1 win over Longford Town at Flancare Park on Tuesday night, as their seven-month wait for an away goal came to an end.

The Lilywhites found themselves behind after just three minutes when Seán Skelly fired home, but they were level just past the midway point of the half when Shanahan tapped in after Paul Hunt had denied Michael Rafter.

The 19-year-old then connected with Stephen McDonnell’s pass eight minutes after the break, and it could have been more but the returning Luke Danville saw his effort come back off the crossbar.
