Maynooth University Town-1
It took just 19 minutes for Firhouse Clover to secure a spot in the next round of the Metro Cup on Sunday morning.
The Tallaght side hit top gear early on and produced a sensational opening 20 minutes to virtually defeat Maynooth University Town before the midway point of the first half.
The side with some serious attacking talent were four to the good thanks to the aforementioned beginning and never looked back.
To their credit Maynooth did stem the flow against the top flight side and even pulled one back, but they were never going to mount a comeback.
Clover flew out of the traps and a brace a piece from Darren Forsyth and Carl Wynne saw them put one foot in the next round.
Forsyth produced two great finishes, while Wynne converted a penalty and clinical finish.
Maynooth did pull one back, but Rory O’Connor capped off another good win in fitting style.
The former Junior International got on the end of a fine team move and chipped eloquently into the top corner.
