FAI Youths Challenge Cup - 2nd Round

Cahir Park 4 - 0 St Kevin?s

St. Kevin?s Two Mile Borris started the far brighter of the two sides dominating possession and pressing the home side deep into their own half, spurning three clear cut chances to open the scoring. Up to that point Cahir Park were relying on the odd break out of defence. Eventually with a change in shape Cahir came more into the game and were rewarded on 25 minutes when the unmarked Brian White slotted home. Both sides fought hard to gain the upper hand and it was the home side that benefited from a defensive lapse as Conor Lonergan, on 38 minutes, latched onto a wayward pass, beat the last defender and powering past the St Kevin?s keeper. The second half began much as the first with the luckless Two Mile Borris team again missing changes when in great positions. Then on 65 minutes this tie was all but settled when Tom Keating, capped his man of the match performance, with a clever finish from just outside the penalty area to the bottom corner of the net.

As Borris tried to force a goal gaps began to appear and Cahir Park should have added to their tally. Eventually on 89 minutes, Brian White grabbed his second and Cahir Park?s fourth.
