Munster Junior Cup Round 2
Avenue Utd A-2
Bridge Utd A-1
Two late goals from super sub Ronan Kerin snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for Avenue Utd at Roslevan on Sunday.
Bridge United will feel they let this one slip from their grasp in this feisty second round tie of the Munster Junior Cup.
The visitors dominated the opening half and were unlucky not to take the lead on 20 minutes when Derek Fahey’s bullet header from a Kieran Quinlan cross was brilliantly saved by Barry Ryan in the Avenue goal.
The opener came five minutes later when Okoro won possession and was fouled on the edge on the box but referee Mark Rellis played a good advantage as Derek Fahey rifled home from 20 yards.
The second half proved a more evenly contested affair but Bridge would be left to regret not extending their lead during their periods of dominance.
The introductions of Kaylan O’Loughlin, Mark Roche, Sean Doherty and Ronan Kerin were effective ones and with 7 minutes left on the clock a David Herlihy cross was headed home by Kerin to level the game. With the game looking like it was heading to extra time Kerin proved to be the match winner with a moment of brilliance when he volleyed home from 25 yards giving Brennan no chance in the Bridge goal.
