FAI Junior Cup
Janesboro – 1
Prospect Priory – 0
A Shane Clarke strike ten minutes from time proved decisive as Janesboro edged an impressive Prospect Priory side to advance in the FAI Junior Cup on Sunday morning.
For 80 minutes the visiting Division 1A side put it up to their Premier Division opponents, however, a low drive by Clarke from the edge of the box couldn’t be kept out by Priory’s stopper and progression was sealed for last season’s semi-finalists.
Despite the disappointment of defeat, Prospect will be able to take a number of positives from an excellent performance as they target promotion to the top division this season.
As for Janesboro their attention now turns back to the league where they will host Fairview Rangers next Sunday in a crunch clash. Both sides are currently locked on 21 points near the top of the table which sets up a highly intriguing affair.
