Home Farm FC-1
Home Farm win on penalties
LSL Senior Sunday champions Bluebell United have suffered back to back cup defeats.
The Red Cow side followed up their FAI Intermediate Cup defeat to Greystones United with a surprise Metro Cup reverse at the hands of LSL Senior Sunday 1 side Home Farm.
Home Farm registered the scalp via penalties in a game that saw three reds and have now made it into the quarterfinals of the Herald Metropolitan Cup.
A Mikey Lynch free kick gave the home side the lead early in the second half, but a late equaliser prompted extra time.
Neither side could find a winner in extra time meaning the game which saw reds for Sean Manley and Stephen O’Sullivan of Home Farm and one for Bluebell was settled in penalties.
The hosts converted all theirs while United missed one from 12 yards and as a result Home Farm progressed to the final eight.
