Sometimes goals are the product of power and pace, or skill and technique, or even dumb luck.
Cabinteely, however, found a way to score through pure quick-witted, laws-of-the-game knowledge.
The Airtricity League of Ireland First Division side were trailing 2-0 at home to Galway United in the closing stages yesterday when they conjured up a goal out of nothing.
Galway goalie Tadhg Ryan was running down the clock before picking up the ball, as he was challenged by a Cabinteely opponent. He dropped the ball to complain to the referee only to pick it up again, at which point the quick-thinking Luke Clucas stepped in.
He raced in to grab the ball off of the unknowing Ryan and tap a quick free-kick across to Keith Dalton for the simplest of tap-ins.
Happily for Ryan, Galway held on for the victory and he was named as man-of-the-match in one report.
