Two goalies score in bizarre soccer match


TWO goalkeepers got on the score-sheet as Ballyheane B and Conn Rangers B drew 4-4 in an extraordinary Mayo League One match on Saturday, writes Daniel Carey.
Ballyheane led 3-2 when, in the 88th minute, Conn Rangers goalkeper Michael Melody ran 40 yards with the ball before smashing in a 35-yard equaliser.
“I had a bit of a distance to travel all right!” Melody told The Mayo News last night (Monday). “I beat their striker in a header and went past their midfielder. I got to the halfway line and there was 20 yards in front of me. So I kept going and hit it as hard as I could. It went in the bottom corner [and] I went mental!”
Shane Maughan’s 90th-minute goal put Rangers 4-3 up, but in the 93rd minute, a 40-yard free kick from Ballyheane goalkeeper Karl Cafolla went over the wall and into the Conn Rangers net.
