The first giant killing of the year took place in Ferrycarrig Park as Leinster Senior League side Crumlin United beat First Division Wexford FC.

Crumlin goalkeeper Michael Quinn was the hero, saving two penalties.

David Vickery gave the Dublin side the lead in the 25th minute but Owen McCormack equalised four minutes later.

Quinn's first penalty save came in the 59th minute, diving to his right to save Aaron Dobbs' effort and then saving the rebound.

He repeated the trick with nine minutes left, this time stopping Dean Kelly's spot kick, and his side won it in the 86th minute as former Shelbourne man Jake Donnelly headed Ger Rowe's cross beyond Danny Bolger.

First Division leaders Waterford FC were shocked by strugglers Shelbourne at the RSC.

Chris Lyons scored just 26 seconds after the break before Reds midfielder Niall Lanigan was sent off for a second yellow card for diving. But Owen Heary's team responded by going 2-0 ahead via a Jamie Doyle header before James English added gloss to the scoreline in the last minute.

Shels keeper Dean Delany had saved a David McDaid penalty at 1-0.

Waterford's Director of Football Pat Fenlon was not there to see it - he was in Stradbrook watching Cabinteely beat UCD 3-1.

Kieran Marty Waters put Cabo ahead on the stroke of half-time after wriggling free in the box.

Anto Dolan made it 2-0 six minutes after the break after Niall Corbet parried Dean Casey's shot.

The Students got one back through Ben Hanrahan but Ryan Swan soon made it 3-1, netting his first goal for Cabo since returning from Exeter City.
