Peake Make Last 16 With Penalty Shootout Win

FAI Junior Cup 6th Round

Greencastle 1-1 Peake Villa AET

(Peake Villa Win 4-2 On Pens)

Peake Villa made it to the final 16 of the FAI Junior Cup for the second time in three seasons after a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Inishowen Football League side Greencastle.

Villa found themselves a goal behind mid-way through the first half as a Matty Henry effort was too good for Willie Tierney. Villa showed their true grit once again however and Mikey Wade levelled proceedings right on the stroke of half time.

James O’Sullivan’s side pressed for a winner but couldn’t find the breakthrough and a penalty shoot-out was needed. Villa held their nerve and ran out 4-2 winners to book their place in the last 16.
