St. An­thony’s need ex­tra-time to win

SOC­CER FAI JU­NIOR CUP ROUND ONE

Bray People - - Sport -

St. An­thony’s 1, Ra­heen United 0 (AET): It may have taken them un­til ex­tra time but St. An­thony’s even­tu­ally saw off the chal­lenge of Ra­heen United to book their place in the 2nd round of the FAI Ju­nior Cup.

Af­ter play­ing out the first 90 min­utes without con­ced­ing or find­ing the back of the net them­selves, the Kil­coole out- fit would have had penal­ties in the back minds but that was un­til Stephen Cough­lan stepped up and fired home a free kick to win the game.

New­town United A 2, Dun­can­non FC 1 (AET): With just a few min­utes left on the clock and los­ing by a goal, New­town United were on the verge of a 1st round exit from the FAI Ju­nior Cup. Cometh the hour, cometh the man how­ever and New­town’s star man Dean Od­lum popped up to force ex­tra time.

Five min­utes into the first pe­riod of ex­tra time then and Terry Mur­phy gave the home side the lead, and they man­aged to see out the re­main­der of the game.

Forth Celtic 5, Ark­low Town A 3: A trip to Wex­ford proved to be a fruit­less jour­ney for Ark­low Town as they got beat 5-3 and thus were elim­i­nated from the FAI Ju­nior Cup at the first round of ask­ing.

Forth Rovers 4, Rath­new AFC 1: Rath­new can now con­cen­trate on their league cam­paign af­ter ex­it­ing the FAI Ju­nior Cup.

The vil­lage men made the trip south to Wex­ford but came home with noth­ing to show for it un­for­tu­nately.

East Coast Al­bion 1, Cour­town Hibs 8: The less said about this match, the bet­ter.

Al­though Dar­ren Kane did at least get his mo­ment of glory with Al­bion’s con­so­la­tion goal.
