TSDL Tipperary Cup 1st Round
Clonmel Town 2
Peake Villa Fc 3
Matthew McKevitt (2)
Peake Villa stormed into the second round of TSDL’s Tipperary Cup after beating league leaders Clonmel Town by the odd goal in five.
In a tight first half the sides went in a goal a piece. Matthew McKevitt put the away side ahead while Paul Shanahan equalised before half time. Villa were dealt a huge blow in the first half when Mikey Wade was giving his marching orders for a second bookable offence.
This would not deter Villa however and they rallied to a 3-1 lead with goals from Pippy Carroll and a second from McKevitt. Town did set up a grandstand finale when Keith Cashman scored in the closing minutes but it was to be too little too late.
Villa remain in all competitions going into the new year and this young side is certainly causing a stir.
