BT Harps travelled to Timeighter on Saturday night and came away with a comfortable win in the Munster Junior Cup.
Roscrea nearly had the perfect start when in the first minute a Brian Franks pass found Shane Moloney and his effort was saved well by Kuba Beben in the Harps goal.
The match the turned I to a scrappy affair and on the 14th minute Tommy Brophy seen a free kick saved by Bryan O’Lone in the Roscrea goal.
Brophy would eventually open the scoring as on the 20th minute he once again stood over a free kick and he made it three goals in two games when he fired the ball past the helpless O’Lone in the goal.
Only a minute later Roscrea nearly equalised when a Rody Ryan cross was headed onto the bar by Cathal Scully who was relieved not to put the ball into his own net.
Roscrea equalised only a minute later when Brian Franks found space 25 yards out and unleashed a fantastic shot into the top corner to send the home fans into delirium.
Harps immediately got on top of the game when a defensive error seen Johnny Coleman get two attempts on goal only for O’Lone to save well on both occasions. On 49 minutes Harps regained the lead when another mix up at the back seen the ball fall to Cathal Scully who in turn passed the ball into the top corner to make it two goals to one.
Harps doubles their lead on 57 minutes when Coleman found space in the box and he easily found the bottom corner leaving O’Lone with no chance. Roscrea looked to get back into the game when Craig Byrne found space 20 yards out but Beben was equal to his shot which was on its way to the top corner.
Harps ended the game as a contest on 78 minutes when poor marking once again seen Brophy turn in the box and his shot was brilliantly put into the bottom corner.
Harps made it five on 86 minutes again when Aidan Fogarty was afforded space in the box and once again O’Lone was left with no chance as his side were dead and buried.
A scrappy affair that the aways side proved to be too much for Roscrea and once again SPG Sean Paddy Guerins stood out as his workrate and physicality prove too much for the home side so the stoppagetime.ie Man Of The Match was Sean Paddy Guerins.
