Hall makes impact for Limerick

Freddy Hall saved a penalty in Limerick's draw

Freddy Hall saved a penalty before conceding another after coming on as a second-half substitute in Limerick’s 2-2 draw at home to Galway last week.

The Bermuda goalkeeper replaced injured first-choice No 1 Brendon Clarke early in the second period, with Limerick leading 2-0 thanks to goals from Rodrigo Tosi (penalty) and Chiedozie Ogbene.

Hall, who has been Clarke’s understudy for much of the season, was soon picking the ball out of the net as Ronan Murray capitalised on a defensive error when Bastien Héry tried to head back to the goalkeeper.

Galway were then awarded a penalty with 20 minutes left. Murray stepped up to take the kick but was denied thanks to a magnificent save from Hall who was at full stretch to push the ball behind.

Hall then gave Galway a lifeline, conceding a penalty as he came out to punch clear a cross but collided with Murray.

Eoin McCormack stepped up and placed his penalty into the bottom left corner sending the Hall the wrong way.

The draw secured Limerick’s top-flight status for next season.
