Cappry had the ball in the net when Shane Carlin took a shot that the keeper could only push into the path of Philip Boyle who tapped in at the back post only for the referee to harshly rule it out for offside. Conor McCormack also saw a free kick from outside the box which had the keeper well beaten but hit the crossbar and went out for a goal kick. Cappry went in 2 down at halftime.
