Fox the penalty shoot-out hero for Glenview
PREMIER DIVISION SHIELD
Glenview FC 2, St. Anthony’s 2 (Glenview win 4-2 on penalties): There was plenty of football drama to be had on television last weekend but there was also no shortage of excitement at the Temple Sports Field as Glenview triumphed over St. Anthony’s in the Premier Shield in the most dramatic of fashions.
Tied at 2-2 after extra-time, penalties were required to separate the Bray and Kilcoole sides and it was the hosts who were king of the spot kicks.
Owen Fox was the big hero, saving two of Anto’s penalties, while Kieran ‘ Tarzan’ O’Brien, Justin Melia, Clinton Murphy and, fresh from his starring role for Wicklow Youths the previous day, Anto O’Neill scored Glenview’s 12- yarders to ensure their side would advance to the second round.
Patrick Woods and Eddie Dunne had scored for St. Anthony’s during the game while Glenview’s scorers were brothers Justin and Martin Melia.
