FAI Junior Cup
Father and son duo Emmet and Liam Brennan helped Mullingar reach the third round of the FAI Junior Cup over the weekend.
Both played for the Westmeath side as they beat Horseleap into the race into the next round.
The clubs Saturday side dominated for large parts of the game and but for a stellar performance from the United goal keeper could have won by a wider margin.
Trevor Thompson and Shane O’Keefe were the goal scoring hero’s on the day as Athletic moved along the Road to the Aviva.
Thomspon opened the scoring on 15 minutes while Brennan finally gave Mullingar some breathing space with 20 minutes remaining.
