Late McKeever strikes see’s 10 man Collinstown progress at North End’s expense
Leinster Junior Cup
North End United-1
Dylan McKeever improvised on the spot to save Collinstown having to face the dreaded spot kicks on Friday Night.
The young striker reacted first to his own rebounded effort and hooked the ball over his shoulder and into the net with 118 minutes gone of a tense cup clash.
The 2014/15 winners now progress to the fifth round of the prestigous cup at the expense of one of Wexford’s tops sides.
The LSL Major 1 side fell behind early on as Adam Beary raced onto a defense splitting pass and opened the scoring.
The odds on Collinstown progressing widen before half time as long serving defender Kenneth Flood say red.
Ritchie Coates, however, managed to force extra time with a second half strike. Coates was sharp come goal mouth scramble time and tapped home after the away keepers attempt to punch clear was unsuccessful.
Extra time followed and just when it looked like the tie was set to be decided by penalties McKever struck.
The sub saw his first strike saved, but reacted as the rebounded looped behind him and registered the winner.
