Leinster Junior Cup
Crumlin United are no longer on the track for Leinster Junior Cup success after they were scalped by Railway Union over the weekend.
The six in a row Major Sunday title winners were fancied to reach the latter stages of both the FAI and Leinster Junior this season.
However, just weeks after being surprised by Tolka Rovers in the FAI Junior Cup the Pearse Park side were defeated by Railway Union in the Leinster Junior.
Hero of the hour for Union was Rory Pratt his late winner and second of the game settled things in the visitors favour.
The first 20 minutes were tight as both sides battled to assert dominance, but the away side took the lead midway through the half.
A mix up at the back saw the ball present itself to Pratt and he produced a clever lob finish to break the deadlock.
Crumlin restored parity before the half time whistle as wide attacking threat Maliek Benrouguibi produced a clever finish.
The tight nature continued into the second half, but Crumlin were starting to create chances.
The hosts eventually took the lead when Chris Strassle finished low form 25 yards.
Raulway didn’t buckle and got back on result track when after a period of pressure Rob Love took advantage of some work from Rory Pratt and Gary Monaghan to finish from close range.
Extra time looked inevitable at that point, but with just two minutes to go Pratt managed to fire home a winner and it’s on to the next Leinster Junior station for Railway.
