Tosi and Duggan deliver for Limerick
Galway Utd 1 Limerick 2
Limerick booked a place in the semi-finals as they struck twice in the third quarter to secure a deserved win at Eamonn Deacy Park.
Both sides struggled to break the deadlock in the opening half and it was no surprise when they changed around scoreless.
Visiting goalkeeper Brendan Clarke was the busier, pulling off saves from Eoin McCormack (twice) and Gavan Holohan.
But Limerick, with Bastien Hery excellent around the middle of the park, took control in the second half and hit Galway with a double strike.
Brazilian Rodrigo Tosi broke the deadlock after 53 minutes when he finished a rebound after goalkeeper Conor Winn could only parry an effort from Stephen Kenny.
Limerick continued to grow in confidence and they made it 2-0 after 64 minutes when Tosi and Chiedozie Ogbene combined and Shane Duggan supplied a powerful finish from inside the box.
Galway pulled one back 11 minutes from time when Pádraic Cunningham finished from close range but they were unable to find an equaliser as Limerick held on for victory.
