Harps hold their nerve to progress in FAI Junior Cup

By Padraig Ryan


BT Harps were the North Tipperary & District League's sole surviving representative in the fifth round of the FAI Junior Cup, as they travelled to Midleton in Cork on Sunday to face St. John Bosco FC and emerged victorious following a penalty shootout.

The exciting game finished 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes with Luke Quinlan scoring twice for Harps, his second a precious equaliser with just minutes remaining in normal time.

An own goal gave the Templemore side the lead in extra time before St John Bosco tied the game once more to make it 3-3 at the end of 120 minutes.

Harps showed the stronger resolve in the shootout, winning 3-1 to progress into the sixth round and last 32 of this prestigious cup.

Callum O’Connor and Jake Moore both chipped in with a brace for Rovers with Thomas Rykala also finding the net. Alan O’Meara and David Nee scored the consolation goals for Portumna.
