SEVENTEENS BOW OUT

  • Tue, Mar 20, 2007 @ 11:51

IN DIFFICULT SWIRLING CONDITIONS both Drogheda Boys and our Under 17s played out an entertaining fifth round tie in their FAI Cup clash. However after a scoreless 90 minutes it was Drogheda who came out on top in extra time.

Drogheda's Robbie Craig and Ciaran Hicks broke Saints hearts scoring either side of the extra-time break. Despite David Fagan's late goal “The Claret and Blues” advance into the quarter-finals.

By a strange stroke of fate both clubs meet again this Sunday in the Leinster Youth Cup. The tie will be played this Sunday at 11:00 in Brickfields.

OUR UNDER 12s on Monday fell behind to a penalty in the first half of their Bank Holiday fixture with Templeogue United. The game was played in difficult windy conditions but both teams coped admirably.

The Saints kept plugging away and as the game entered the closing minutes it looked like a result was going to escape them. However good work from Mark Patchell and Keifer Byrne released Glen Carroll. Carroll's cross found Dale Kirwan ghosting in on the right, and Kirwan kept his cool to calmly chip the advancing Templeogue keeper. 1-1 the final score.
