Ennis Town and Shannon Olympic played out an entertaining draw at Lees Road on Sunday. Shannon Olympic had the better of the first half and went in front on 20 minutes when Wayne Ryan got on the end of a through ball from Deaglán McDonald and finished well. McDonald went close to stretching the Olympic lead on 30 minutes after a good run and shot that narrowly missed the target. Ennis Town had their best chance of the half on 37 minutes after a good run and shot from Rory Brennan that forced Olympic keeper Jason Carmody into making a good save at his near post. Brennan went close again on 38 minutes after narrowly heading over the crossbar from a well delivered corner from Ultan Shiels. One last chance for Olympic before half time when the broke quickly from the back and McDonald was denied by a brilliant save from Gerry Dullaghan who came off his line well to make the save.
Olympic started the second half well and McDonald should have scored on 46 minutes but was denied by a great block on the line from Kevin Hartigan. Ennis Town came more into it as the half went on and got back on level terms when substitute Conor Clohessy finished off a rebound after Carmody had made a good save from Collins. Ennis Town kept the pressure on and turned the game on its head when Rory Brennan scored with a shot from outside the box. Olympic never gave up and earned a deserved share of the points with a great finish from Ray Quigley from 25 yards.
