League Div 1B
Hospital 3 -1 Shannon Hibs
This was a very disappointed result for Hibs, who despite missing a number of players should have done better on the day. After a fairly scrappy opening half, the sides went in level at half time, with Hibs guilty of missing a number of goal scoring chances. Fifteen minutes into the second half Hospital scored two goals in quick succession and then got a third shortly after this to take command of the game. With twenty minutes to go, substitute Ken Buckley cut in from the left and curled a great shot into the top corner to give Hibs some hope. Hospitial were then reduced to ten men but despite all their pressure Hibs could not find an opening to bring themselves back into the match.

Shelbourne B 1 - 4 Shannon Hibs B

With fifteen minutes gone in the game Hibs found themselves 1 down but managed to equalize ten minutes later when Willie O’Donoghue crossed in from a corner with Bobby O’Connell connecting to head it in. Hibs then took the lead before half time with Sean Lindsay striking a great shot from 25 yards out into the bottom corner. Hibs continued to improve in the second half and then got their third after a scramble in the Shels box the ball fell to Seanie Cahill who struck a shot past into the back of the net from close range. Sean Lindsay then made sure of the points for Hibs after a flick from Gavin Lundy found Lindsay at the edge of the box who struck a well taken shot past the shels keeper.
