Evergreen – 2
Willow Park – 0
Kilkenny’s last remaining representatives Evergreen progressed to the quarter-final of the FAI Junior Cup after a fine 2-0 victory against Athlone’s Willow Park at Kells Road on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts got off to a great start when they went ahead through Sean Barcoe with just under fifteen minutes played. Willow reacted well and had numerous chances to level, however, Evergreen held out to take a one goal lead into the break.
The second-half was very close with both sides threatening, however, on 68 minutes, Evergreen were given a fantastic chance to double their lead when a free-kick was awarded just inside the Willow D
Conor English stepped up and curled an absolute beauty into the top right corner to make it 2-0 and seal Evergreen’s progression to the FAI Junior Cup’s final eight.
