Freddy Hall’s “Heroics” Lead To Limerick Win

August 11, 2015

A “heroic” save by Bermudian goalkeeper Freddy Hall paved the way for his ten-man Limerick football club to produce an “incredible fightback” as they beat Bohemians 4-3 in a SSE Airtricity League Premier Division match.

The official Limerick FC website said, “Ten-man Limerick produced an incredible fightback to beat Bohemians 4-3 in a thrilling SSE Airtricity League Premier Division match at the Markets Field on Saturday night.

“After an even opening quarter to the game, Freddy Hall produced heroics to deny Jake Kelly from ten-yards, the ‘keeper getting down superbly to stop a powerful shot.

“And that laid the platform for Limerick to take the lead minutes later when Ian Turner’s delivery from the right was met by an unstoppable header from Vinny Faherty, who made it three in two games.

“Moments into the second half, Bohs threatened when Kelly and Karl Moore set up Roberto Lopes but under pressure he shot wide. Then Akinade burst past Patrick Kanyuka, drawing the foul and a red card from referee Seán Grant. Kelly stood up and put Hall the wrong way.

“Then Kelly got through on goal and rounded the ‘keeper, but pushed wide out on the left his cross in was gathered by Hall. The 25-year-old then thought he had scored when an Akinade cross fell to his feet ten-yards out but his low strike was superbly stopped by a strong hand from the Bermudian.”
