Lansdowne controlled time of possession and dominated shots on goal, but the host Vikings (7-1-1) ended up in a 1-1 tie after two five-minute overtimes against Dundalk (3-3-1) on senior night.
Lansdowne scored with 1:27 left in the first half after senior Van Thang’s short cross was deflected by two Dundalk defenders to Dom Supak, who headed it home.
Dundalk’s only shot on goal in the game resulted in a goal by a charging Maycol Pinto-Olivia after a rebound with 18:04 left in the second half.
“That couldn’t have been better placed. That was a perfect ball,” Lansdowne coach George Dunn said of the shot for the goal. “The first half I felt a little uneasy because we possessed so much, we were playing very well and couldn’t get that second goal and that came back to haunt us.”
Despite not extending the lead in the first half, the Vikings defense, that included wing backs Ai Ling and Nana Andoh and central backs Thau Za Mu and Lai Tha, was relentless.
