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.
