United best in cracker
LEINSTER JUNIOR CUP ROUND 1 Newtown United A 3, Rock Celtic 2 (AET): Newtown United just don’t know how to do things the easy way. After a dramatic 4-3 win last week Newtown produced another cracking game of football with plenty of heart wrenching moments.
With just three minutes left in normal time in this fixture the visitors grabbed what looked like a late winner but PJ Dowling wasn’t about to let that happen and equalized with what was literally the last kick in normal. Dessie Waters goal early in the first period of extra time meant that Newtown’s name would be in the hat for the next round.
John Heffernan’s spot kick was where the other Newtown goal came from.
