Second-half strikes from Lucas Schubert and Barry McNamee completed Derry City's come-from-behind victory to ease them into the semi-finals of the FAI Cup at Ferrycarrig Park.
Youths started brilliantly in their first ever quarter-final, taking the lead with a wonderful goal on six minutes. Paul Murphy treaded a perfect through pass for Eric Molloy who slotted it past the advancing Ger Doherty.
Derry responded well and deservedly levelled right on the blow of the break.
Rory Patterson turned cleverly from Conor McDermott's pass to see his shot from the edge of the area deflect off Gary Delaney into the net.
Derry went ahead on 67 minutes when man-of-the-match Aaron McEneff's free kick came back off a post. Midfielder Schubert reacted quickest to the scramble to sweep the ball home with his right foot.
McNamee then sealed Derry's win on 84 minutes when turning in the box to shoot home.
