St Francis FC-1
Robbie McGuinness scored straight from a corner in John Hyland Park as Tolka Rovers register a win that suggest they may have turned a corner.
The young side went down 9-0 to Glebe North three weekends ago, but have bounced back to win two games on the trot for the first time this season.
The Frank Cooke Park side accounted for LSL Senior Sunday 1 outfit St Francis in the Metro Cup on Friday night adding to the 3-2 win over UCD in the league the week previous.
Captain McGuinness opened the scoring for Joe Malone’s charges straight from a corner. The midfielder whipped in right footed from the left corner flag and found the top corner rather than a team mates head on 20 minutes.
The lively saints levelled within five minutes in what was turning into an entertaining first period.
However, big front man David Mbata, who scored 16 goals in the Nigerian first division in 2010, found the back of the net on 30 minutes registering what proved to be the decisive strike.
