Own goal decides White Cup cracker

UNDER 12 PAT WHITE CUP

Templeogue United 2

Knocklyon United 1

The SDFL held four cup finals in miserable conditions last weekend at Frank Cox Park and the league would like to thank Rathcoole FC for providing their facilities for the games.

The Granada v Firhouse Under 13 Celtic Horizons Tours Cup was covered in Striker last Monday and below is a round up of the other three that took place.

In a very tight Under 12 Pat White Cup final, Templeogue United came from behind to just about squeezed past Knocklyon United on a 2-1 scoreline.

Brian Keogh gave Knocklyon the lead in the first half, but a second-half comeback saw Templeogue level the game through Dylan Cleary and then clinch the trophy when Darragh O'Neill's corner was turned into his own net by an unlucky defender.

It was a lead that they were not going to surrender and it set off wild celebrations at the final whistle.

BEECHWOOD DERAIL RAILWAY IN O'REILLY

UNDER 12 Marie O'Reilly Cup

Beechwood FC 4

Railway Union 1

BEECHWOOD FC's unbeaten season continued last Sunday when they proved to be too strong for Railway Union in the Under 12 Marie O'Reilly Cup final.

Harry Lynch shot them in front in the 15th minute while three strikes from Ronan Doyle, Edward Kelly and James Breslin had them well in command. Rory Tobin netted from the spot for Railway.

RATHCOOLE POWER TO LEE CUP VICTORY

UNDER 13 JAMES LEE CUP

Rathcoole FC 6

Beechwood FC 0

HOME advantage for Rathcoole FC was not a factor in the Under 13 James Lee Cup final as they steam-rolled their way over Beechwood on a 6-0 scoreline.

Eoin Richardson with a hat-trick, Conor Gallagher, two, and Darragh Tynan were on the mark for the winners.
