LATE FAHEY STRIKE SENDS SAINTS INTO QUARTERS

  • Sat, Aug 18, 2007 @ 0:47

Saints legend Ginger O'Rourke was on hand to at the Carlisle Grounds to see present day Saints favourite Keith Fahey net an injury time winner for John McDonnell's side in an action packed FAI Ford Cup third round match.

O'Rourke will be hoping the current squad can emulate the teams of 1959 and 1961 and end a 46 year wait for Cup success as they advance to the quarter final stages.

Another Saints legend, Wanderers boss Eddie Gormley must surely have thought his side had secured a mid-week replay at Richmond Park from a game in which they played second best for long periods before ten-man St Pat's produced a winner at the death.

A clever link up between midfield star Joseph Ndo and substitute Ryan Guy led to Fahey in space on the edge of the Bray penalty area and his deflected shot rolled past Steve Williams in the Bray goal to send the large and vocal travelling support into raptures.
