Rath­new storm into quar­ter-fi­nals

Bray People - - SPORT -

THE 2009 and 2010 Wick­low Cup cham­pi­ons will both be com­pet­ing in the quar­ter-fi­nals of this sea­son's competition.

Rath­new AFC A - the 2009 win­ners - booked their place in em­phatic fash­ion. They trav­elled to Celtic Park and blew Ark­low Celtic A out of the wa­ter with a barnstorming 3-9 vic­tory.

There were no hat-trick heroes at the Ark­low venue but An­thony Doyle, Mark Doyle and Paul Mer­ri­gan all recorded dou­bles. Jody Mer­ri­gan, Colin Jame­son and Nicky Mer­nagh also got in on the act with a goal apiece.

New­town United's path into the last eight was less straight­for­ward. They were re­duced to ten men 20 min­utes into their tie with En­niskerry YC A at Ber­ry­field Lane but the Mag­pies ral­lied to win it ten min­utes from time thanks to a Ross Od­lum strike.
