SFAI U15 National Cup Last 32
Charleville 3 – 2 Mallow United (AET)
In the U15 National Cup last 32 Mallow traveled to take Charleville on Saturday last. Shane Brown put Mallow 1-0 up ten minutes in after the keeper parried from a Sam Cronin effort. Mallow created several great opportunities in the first half with the Charleville keeper playing a pivotal role in keeping Mallows advantage to a single goal at half-time. The game took a turn in the second half as a wind assisted Charleville applied sustained pressure on the Mallow goal with Osinski and Henigan being called into action for Mallow to stem the Charleville attack on more than one occasion. Despite the spirited Mallow effort in defence Charleville got a well-deserved equaliser after 5 minutes and took the lead mid-way through the second half. After going ahead Charleville began to sit back allowing Mallow back into the game and when Dylan McGrath was played through on the 25-minute mark he made no mistake slotting home to the far left. With the teams tied at 2-2 at full time, extra time was required. With little to separate the sides in the extra time period it looked like penalties were on the cards however in the last minute a well delivered Charleville corner benefited from the strong wind and found the back of the net to give Charleville the win.
