Round Tower Rovers 3 - 2 St. Joseph's FC
This was another absolutely brilliant game of football between the two top teams unfolded in Timahoe on a rainy Sunday morning, but the weather certainly didn't dampen the passion and performance shown by both teams. The Saints started strong and immediately went on the attack and opened the scoring through their top goal scorer Tom Mitchell in the 5th minute when Padraig Webb drove at the heart of the Rovers defence and passed neatly for Mitchell to finish from 6 yards. The Joeys lead didn’t last long when Kieran Delaney stepped up to finish past the Joeys team from the edge of the box. The Saints pulled back in front when Fredo Eyong scored with a tidy finish at the back post, this time Mitchell becoming the provider for Eyong. A well deserved goal for Eyong, for his exceptional work rate and attacking play. Rovers equalised for a second time when a Cian Dowling Byrne shot was saved well by the keeper only to fall into the path of Enda Butler who rifled it home. Just before the break was when Rovers took the lead for the first time when a good ball from the left from Darren Byrne was send home by Ben O’Reilly, in what proved to be the match winner. The Saints began to dominate the second half by playing fantastic football for both their fans and the neutral to enjoy. Kieran Carey had a great chance to level for the Saints when he found himself with time and space in the middle of the box but his shot was blocked by a Rovers defender. The Saints tried valiantly to score their third goal of the game but for all their magnificent play they could not find the net and Rovers went through to the next round. A really fantastic game of football between both teams with Brandon Sheehan, Jack Murphy and Evan McGuire standing out for the Saints.
