Leinster Junior Cup
One of the LSL Saturday sides some suggest are capable of a Leinster Junior Cup won a tricky first round fixture on Saturday afternoon.
Crumlin overcame the challenge of St Mochtas at Porterstown to progress to the second round.
Crumlin hit two goals to won a second string battle of clubs whose first teams will be hoping to be there or there abouts at the end of this seasons Senior Sunday campaign.
The side who have won seven of their opening seven league games, scoring 27 goals in the process, drew first blood and were ahead as early as the eight minute.
Leon Foley sent a deep cross into the danger zone and it was missed by all including the home net minder.
The visitors finished the half like they had started it- scoring.
Crumlin added to their advantage just two minutes shy of the break. This time former UCD under 19 and Firhouse Clover player Malike Benrougubi’s cross was headed home by Crumlin Saturday favourite Chris Strassle.
Dylan Sweeney and Aaron O’Brien had half chances early in the second. while the home side had goal dissallowed for offside before O’Brien was unlucky to see a shot come back off the post.
However, Crumlin defended well needed and looked a danger on the break and ultimately the two goal cushion was enough to see them progress past a Mochtas side who had a man sent off late on.
