Heartbreak For Harps As Saints Scrape Into Last 64

FAI Junior Cup 5th Round

St Michael’s 3-2 BT Harps (AET)

St Michael’s made it to the sixth round of the FAI Junior Cup by the skin of their teeth after a hard-fought extra-time win over North Tipperary side BT Harps.

Saints took a first half lead through John O’Brien but a fine effort from Jamie Bergin midway through the second half levelled proceedings. Joey Mulcahy scored from the spot ten minutes from time to put Saints back in front but a Stephen Nolan strike deep into injury time sent the game into extra-time. Harps hearts were broken a minute from time as Richie Ryan was on hand to save his sides blushed against the very young side north of the divide.
