FAI Junior Cup
Two quick fire goals either side of the hour mark went a long way to settling this FAI Junior Cup battle in Dangan yesterday afternoon.
A tight and tense affair swung the way of the hosts as they hit a brace a third of the way into the tie.
Niall Whelan quickly followed up Sean Gavin’s opener putting the Galway side in the driving seat with half an hour remaining, before Paul Scally made sure of the result with a third with just minutes remaining.
Having beaten Newcastle, NUI will now face Hibernian- of Waterford not Easter Road- in the last 16.
