Hibs defeated Olympic to win the battle of Shannon and progress in the Munster Junior Cup.
Shannon Hibs started the game brighter and looked more up for it than the Olympic players. David O’Flaherty and Dean Power were kept busy at the back for Olympic while Jason Carmody did well to make three good saves as the sides remained deadlocked at the break 0-0.
Jack Arra replaced Sean Burke for Olympic and he was a threat throughout the second half. Hibs went in front on 70 minutes with a good finish from Jimmy Houlihan. Olympic pushed hard for an equalizer in the closing stages but Hibs defended well and earned a deserved place in round 3 at home to Ennis Town A.
