THE FAI Junior Cup holders and the FAI Intermediate Cup champions played out a stalemate in their FAI Cup third-round clash in the rain at Cooke Park in Tipperary Town yesterday.

The teams will meet again in a replay at Avondale Park in Carrigaline next Saturday (6.0), with a coveted place in the quarter-finals up for grabs.

Danny Long and Graham McCarthy missed early chances for Avondale.

Then Eoghan Lougheed, having beaten St Michael's goalkeeper Aaron Wall in a race for possession, dinked the ball just wide in the Cork side's best chance.

The Saints' Russell Quirke fired into the side netting in their best opening of a first half played in heavy rain, and Richie Ryan produced a late finger-tip save from Daniel O'Leary after 82 minutes.

St Michael's beat Avondale at the same venue two weeks ago in the Tom Hand Cup final.

St Michael's - Wall; Ryan, Breen, Walsh (capt), O'Brien; Quirke, Bargary, Fahey, Carr; Ryan (D McGrath 85), Lynch (M McGrath 68).

Avondale Utd - O'Leary; Horgan, Mulconry, Lougheed; R Long, Caulfield, Murphy, Warren (Spratt 72), Kelly; McCarthy, D Long (capt).
