Three Rock and Pembroke Share the Spoils
Pembroke 2 (G Chambers, A Sothern) Three Rock Rovers 2 (R Pautz, B Walker)
Dublin rivals Pembroke and Three Rock Rovers shared a feisty 2-2 draw at Serpentine Avenue in which both sides had their moments to win the tie.
The hosts took an early lead through Greg Chambers before Ben Walker made it 1-1 in the 18th minute from a corner move. Richard Pautz put Rovers in front for the first time just before half-time
Rovers had a trio of good chances to go further up before Pembroke had their spell in the ascendancy with Alan Sothern levelling with 11 minutes to go following Kirk Shimmins’ excellent run.
Sothern, though, made a rare mis-step in front of goal from a penalty stroke which he put wide with five minutes to go. Richard Sweetnam did brilliantly to save off the line from a Luke Madeley drag-flick at the end to ensure a draw.
