Shannon Rangers hosted Premier Division side Lough Derg A in the Tipperary Cup on Sunday morning in what turned out to be what you want in a cup tie. Shannon Rangers went 1 up mid -way through the first half but Lough Derg hit straight back with two quick goals to lead 2-1 at the break. An early goal in the second half saw the away side lead 3-1 but we hit the net quickly to bring it to a one goal game again, with 20 minutes left the away side added it’s fourth for the day. With 3 minutes left on the clock the days scoring was wound up with a well worked goal to leave the final score Shannon Rangers 3-4 Lough Derg A. All players can be proud of their efforts in this game it was just a shame a few of our regulars were missing as this was a game we could have won.
