FOOTBALL: Glengad United’s dream of reaching the FAI Junior Cup final at the Aviva Stadium has been ended this afternoon in Limerick.
Shane Byrne’s side have enjoyed a memorable run to the quarter-finals, but they got as tough a draw as possible when paired to face Pike Rovers in Limerick.
Pike Rovers won the competition in 2011, and are the bookies favourite to win the competition outright.
Unfortunately for Glengad, the Limerick side proved too strong and ran out comfortable 4-0 winners this afternoon.
Two goals in a three minute period effectively killed the game, and it was always going to be a tough task for Byrne’s side after the concession of two goals in the first-half.
Pike got the third goal and added a fourth late on to ease into the semi-finals of the FAI Junior Cup.
