TRALEE Dynamos stretched their 100% run to six games at Christy Leahy Park, but they were put to the pin of their collar by a resiliant Park side.
In a hot tempered game that threatened to get out of hand at times tackles were fast and furious between the Tralee arch rivals. The game got off to an explosive start with Dynamos scoring after just four minutes with an Adam Piggott goal and The Park were reduced to 10 men when David Doyle was sent off for an off the ball incident. Dynamos were the dominant side in the opening half controlling the ball well but they were finding it hard to wear down a resolute Park defence.
The game was all square two minutes into the second half when The Park's new signing Lee Rushe got past Maurice O'Rahilly to feed Ross O'Callaghan who put another new signing Barry O'Hare in and he finished to the net. Now the game was hanging on a thread as the ball moved from end to end and it looked as if Dynamos were going to go ahead when they were awarded a penalty but Park keeper Tommy Moriarty made a great save to deny Theo Diggins.
The game was still deadlocked with six minutes to go and The Park had strong claims for a penalty when Ross O'Callaghan appeared to be fouled in the box but referee Willie Gorman waved play on. On the counter attack Dynamos opened the Park defence and were awarded a penalty. Jamie McIntyre made no mistake from the spot. The Park had one late chance but Dynamos held out for a hard earned win.
