Tommy Clements Cup
St Pauls Artane-2
Nathan O’Donaghue’s second half strike saw St Pauls Artane secure a confidence boosting draw with Sheriff YC on Thursday night.
The result was enough to ensure both sides progressed to the knock out stages of the Tommy Clements Cup with the FAI Junior Cup winners finishing first and the AUL Premier A returnees securing second place.
Pauls started brightly and took the lead via Graham Sullivan as early as the tenth minute.
However, Sheriff restored parity before the break as Mark Quigley converted from the spot.
Lee Featherson then made it two goals in two games as he put the Premier A champions in front after the turn, but O’Donaghue managed to level and as a result the sides shared the spoils.
