Macroom FC round-up
The cup scene has taken centre stage over the last two weeks as Macroom A and B took part in the AOH and Munster Junior Cups with varying results.
AOH cup round two saw both teams in action and unfortunately it was defeat on the double. The first team travelled to the Southside to take on Pearse Celtic B and were beaten on penalties following a 2-2 draw with the goals coming fron Andrew Hegarty and James O’Connor.
Macroom B entertained Coachford A at Murrayfield and gave a great account of themselves against Premier league opposition. At the finish they came up just short on a 3-2 scoreline after extra time with Darren Dineen and John James Healy getting the goals.
Last weekend it was Munster Junior Cup round 1. Macroom B was away to Premier Side Kanturk. Once again a great performance brought no reward as the Duhallow side won 4-2.
