Seatown almost pulled off the shock of the 2013 season in Hiney Park on Thursday night as they led league leaders Muirhevnamor FC 1-0 with just seven minutes to go.
However the Mor were rescued from a first league defeat in three years when ace poacher Paudie Heraty saved his side with a late equaliser.
Stefan Zlokapa put Seatown in front after just 15 minutes with a well hit free-kick; his 12th goal of the season.
From then until the final whistle a defiant Seatown side soaked up everything Muirhevnamor threw at them until Hearty denied Brian McGuinness’ men a historic win.
Seatown’s Denys Cholach, who is only 18-years of age, was outstanding in midfield along with goalkeeper David McKenny.
Muirhevnamor’s last league defeat occurred in the 2010 season when Quay Celtic beat them 4-1 in the Navvy Bank.
Shamrocks reign supreme in Fatima derby
For the third time this season, Shamrocks FC got the better of their stablemates, Shamrock Youths.
Ciaran Clarke, with a well taken effort, beat Padraig Gorham to give the Youths an 8th minute lead but minutes later Kyle McEvoy tapped home to bring the sides level.
A mistake in the Youths defence allowed Martin Murphy in to give Shamrocks the lead after 18 minutes, an advantage which they held until the break.
The half ended in controversy however as the referee Thomas Little failed to give Shamrocks a goal when the ball appeared to have went through the net.
Ten minutes into the second-half Gorham saved a piledriver from Robbie Mackin and the stop proved to be crucial as shortly after Cathal McGlade had Shamrocks 3-1 ahead.
Frustration was getting the better of the Youths and their manager Barry Casey was sent from the ground by referee Little before Daithi O’Connor’s sweetly struck shot reduced the deficit to one goal with 17 minutes to play but despite pressing hard in the final few minutes the Youths could not find a leveller.
