Newmarket Celtic moved on to the next phase of the FAI Junior cup after a convincing win over Bridge Utd in McDonough Park.

Chances were few and far between in the first half and it was just before half time when Celtic took the lead.

A corner from Eoin Hayes was diverted into his own net by Bridge Utd goalkeeper Kieran Brennan to gift the hosts a very soft goal.

The second half saw a bit more goalmouth action and it was former Bridge man Brian Monaghan who did the damage. He got on the end of a long throw from Eoin O’Brien and made no mistake with the finish.

Monaghan later doubled his own total for the day late to put the game to bed and seal Newmarkets place in the last 64 against Aungier Celtic.

Munster Junior Cup Round 2
Turnpike Rovers 2-2 Coole FC (AET) – Coole won 7-6 on penalties
Coole FC advanced to round 3 of the Munster Junior Cup after a dramatic sudden death penalty shootout victory over Turnpike Rovers at Lees Road on Sunday. Coole started well and were 1-0 up after 10 minutes after a cross field ball found Jason Grealish and he turned the defender before firing a low shot into the bottom corner.

Turnpike had a chance to draw level before the break when they were awarded a penalty but it well saved by Arek Mamala in the Coole goal. The score at the break was 1-0 to Coole. Turnpike came out with guns blazing the start of the second half and drew level few mins in when they scored from a shot from outside the box. Coole were then caught out with a set piece after a corner wasn’t defended and Turnpike went 2-1 up.

With the match in injury time Coole had one last chance and a free kick from outside the box from Dave Cahill came back off the crossbar to find the on rushing Fergus Tuohy who fired home from close range to send the game to extra time. There was no more goals in extra time and Coole kept their nerve better in the shootout and qualified for a home match in round 3 against Shannon Town B or Rineanna Rovers.

Coole FC: Arek Mamala, Jake Farrell, Noele Glynn, Fergus Tuohy, Sean Roche, Kieran Burke, John Cosgrove, Rafa Mamala, Dave Cahill, Darragh Reilly, Jason Grealish. Subs: Darren Grealish, Ayrton Quinn, John Regan
