.@Dundalkfc extended their lead at the top of the table with a routine win over @FinnHarpsFC including a great assist by John Mountney for a Michael Duffy header. pic.twitter.com/UPX91ffksm — Soccer Republic (@SoccRepublic) June 9, 2019 Share of the spoils in Sligo Sligo Rovers and St. Patrick's Athletic drew 1-1 on Saturday. The sides swapped late goals in the space of 60 seconds at the Showgrounds. Jack Keaney gave the Bit O'Red the lead in the 80th minute courtesy of a delfected free kick from long range. St. Pat's responded within a minute; Kevin Toner volleying home after Gary Shaw's initial header effort hit the bar. Scoring late equalizers is becoming a habit for Harry Kenny's men, after Simon Madden's last gasp goal last week rescued a point against Cork City in Inchicore. There are still just three points separating the teams in the table, with Pat's on 28 points and Sligo on 25, but Rovers have a game in hand on the Dublin outfit.
