Neil O Sullivan Cup First Round

Curracloe United  2  Tombrack United  1  aet

Billed as one of the games of the round, the game was closely contested but never lived up to its potential as a game between the Division Two leaders and a Division One side in contention for promotion. Tombrack started well and a goal from James Coleman put the lads deservedly in front and up to the half hour mark, they were good value for their lead and had the home team working hard to get themselves back into the game. However, the final fifteen minutes of the first half saw Curracloe become more dominant and only some good defending and goalkeeping prevented them getting level before the break

For the remainder of the half, Tombrack had to defend strongly with Bob Newe and Kieran Kenny both working exceptionally hard while James Coleman tried hard to make an impact on the game. Kevin Kenny had Tombrack's only chance of the half with a shot that was easily gathered by the keeper and so the game moved to extra time

Midway through the first half of extra time, Curracloe were awarded a penalty for a foul just inside the area which they duly slotted away for what proved to be the winning goal. James Coleman did have a header saved late in the game but unfortunately chances were few and far between in a game where the lads were second best for long periods of the game and will be disappointed with their performance overall. It will now all depend on how the lads bounce back in the league with a big game coming up on Sunday away to Ferns knowing that a performance like last Sunday will see them struggle. Nothing can be taken away from Curracloe's efforts on the day and they showed why they are top of division one but a more spirited performance from Tombrack would have seen them more in the game and possible awaiting the second round draw, however on this occasion it was not to be
