Galbally United 4 – 3 Cahir Park
Galbally United continued their fine run of cup form of late with a win here in a thrilling Tipperary Cup tie against Premier outfit Cahir Park on Sunday last at the Co. Limerick venue.
The home side opened the scoring with a goal by Conor Henebry on ten minutes but were pegged back to parity when Eoin Farren scored for Cahir Park ten minutes later.
Both sides then had chances to retake the lead, but it was Galbally United who capitalised ten minutes before the break, as Robert Healy headed home from a corner kick.
Bernard O’Brien then doubled the lead with a lobbed shot over the despairing keeper on the hour mark, as the home side looked to be easing to victory.
With 20 minutes remaining, Cahir’s Ger Cronin reduced the lead to the minimum again when he headed home a well taken free kick.
Galbally United made it 4-2 five minutes later, when Quinn Perry got his weekly goal.
However, five minutes from time, Paddy Kenneally made it 4-3 from another well executed set piece.
Try as they did however, Cahir Park just couldn’t breach the home defence one more time and Galbally United advanced at the expense of higher league opposition in a cup competition for the second week in a row.
