Orchard United are second, two point behind an Arranmore side they host next Saturday.
Today, Drumkeen’s early pressure paid off after 13 minutes when Peter McNamee scored a penalty that was awarded for handball.
Early, with his team 1-0 down, took on Brendan McGarvey in the second half and as away side began to create more and more chances.
Declan Proctor’s free-kick was blocked using a hand from the Drumkeen wall and the referee pointed to the spot for the second time.
McGravey took responsibility – as regular penalty taker Gavin McGlanaghy was off receiving treatment – and scored to make it 1-1.
Benny mcgarvey stepped up to the mark as normal penalty take Gavin was off receiving treatment from the foul for the free kick.
Shaun Sharkey almost put Arranmore ahead as he broke through on goal but Drumkeen cleared well.
In the 65th minute, following a fine ball by McGarvey, Gavin McGlanaghy found himself running down on goal and he was calmness personified as he waited for the advancing keeper before lifting it over him and the ball trickled into the far corner of the post.Tags:
