Fogarty to the rescue for Kildare

Kildare 2-07 Carlow 1-09: An injury-time goal from Padraig Fogarty rescued an understrength and underwhelming Kildare in Athy last night.

Fogarty to the rescue for Kildare

Carlow looked like they were heading for a deserved victory after sub Eric Bambrick goaled in the 57th minute to bring the sides level. Ed Finnegan followed up with his second point and when Daniel St Ledger landed a monstrous free, Turlough O’Brien’s men were bound for a fantastic win.

It wasn’t to be though, as Fogarty rifled an unstoppable shot beyond Andy O’Brien.
