FAI Junior Cup
Corduff FC 2 – 2 Trim Celtic AFC
*Corduff win 5-4 on penalties
Trim travelled up to Blanchardstown on Friday evening to play under the lights on the astro in the chilly air and it seemed like the journey had warmed them up along the way as they took the lead early on in this FAI Junior Cup Second Round tie. It was a lead they couldn’t hold on to as Corduff fought back gamely in one of the ties of the round so far.
Due to an injury Trim were forced to make an early substitution but were two goals to the good at the break with early and late strikes in the half. Once the second half kicked off Corduff seemed to come more into the contest and pulled an early goal back with only a few mins gone. Then a late equaliser was produced forcing the game into extra time. With very little action happening in the 30 mins added on it went to penalties and with the first 9 converted it fell to Goggins of Trim to force sudden death. His effort was saved however and Corduff progress into the third round.
