Result: Harps 3 - Saints 1
Tunde Owolabi grabbed a stunning hat-trick as Finn Harps thwarted any hope St Patrick's Athletic may have had of matching Shamrock Rovers' points tally at the top of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.
The Harps support have taken the Belgian to heart this season and tonight, as well as being a complete thorn in the side of the Inchicore team leading the line, the standard of his finishing was top drawer.
St Pat's started brightly, with Nahum Melvin-Lambert hitting the side-netting, forced four corners inside of 10 minutes as it looked as though the trend of the previous two meetings this term would continue.
At the other end Owolabi was dragging the visiting defence here and there and his first sight of goal drew a save down low from Vitezslav Jaros.
