Rovers get into stride by win­ning Mills Cup

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RESULTS / ROUND-UP -

THREE Rock Rovers warmed up for to­day’s Ir­ish Se­nior Cup quar­ter-fi­nal away to Cork CI with a 4-2 win over Corinthi­ans in the Mills Cup fi­nal.

Rovers were fully tested by their Le­in­ster League neigh­bours in the match at Grange Road, es­pe­cially dur­ing the first half which fin­ished 3-2 in favour of the even­tual win­ners.

Three Rock later wore down their op­po­nents with some daz­zling stick­work leav­ing them two up so that they could af­ford the lux­ury of Luke Made­ley’s wild miss from the penalty spot.

There were goals for the vic­tors from the Mullins brothers, John and Kevin, along with Ross Can­ning and Dar­ragh Walsh, while Jonathan Roberts and Stephen Reid posted the scores for Corinthi­ans be­fore the break.

Rail­way Union’s young team took the Jac­qui Pot­ter Cup as they over­came UCD 3-0, the goals com­ing from Ni­amh Carey (two) and Nina Heis­terkamp.
