Bohemians 4, Shelbourne 6 (full-time)

Shels got back to winning ways in quite remarkable fashion in this ten goal

thriller.

Goals from Pat Fenlon, Richie Baker and Stephen Geoghegan had Shels 3-0 up

by twelve minutes.

Glen Crowe got one back on 34 only for Jim Gannon to restore Shels' three

goal lead within a minute.

Dave Morrison gave Bohs hope when heading their second a mintue before the

break.

Gary O'Neill kept the revival momentum going with Bohs' third goal on 52

minutes before Crowe netted his second to equalise and make it 4-4 on 67

minutes.

But, remarkably, Bohs allowed Shels to restore their lead through Davy

Byrne within a minute.

Substitute Jim Crawford then added Shels' sixth goal in stoppage time.
