FAI Junior Cup
Third tier AUL side St Malachy’s managed to limit free scoring Sheriff to just one goal on on Sunday morning, but couldn’t prevent the champions continuing along the Road to the Aviva.
Sheriff came into the tie on the back of a number of wide margin wins and it looked a daunting task for the Division 1 Sunday outfit.
However they battled well and were in the game for the most part. Yet just battling wasn’t enough as the the visitors still managed to register victory to extend their unbeaten run in the prestigious competition.
Darren Dunne scored the games only goal hitting his third goal in two games to put Sheriff in front.
That strike came within the first 20 minutes, but didn’t prompt the floodgates to open.
Sheriff, whose last defeat in the competition came against Liffey Wanderers in the 2014/15 final, didn’t add to their tally, but did progress to round 4 regardless.
