No Bridge Too Far For Willow

Sunday 20th February 2011. Leinster Junior Cup Round 5. Willow Park.
Willow Park 3-1 Bridge United

2 late goals from substitute Colm Hyland sent Willow Park through to the next round of the Leinster Junior Cup at the expense of Bridge United of Clare.

Despite having the majority of possession in the 1st half, Willow failed to create many clear chances of note, with their final passing letting them down. In fact the only incident of note during the half was the referee having to get treatment from the Willow bench for what turned out to be a torn calf muscle.

A second half substitution of officials brought anger to the Bridge coaches and supporters with many mutterings of “home ref home decision”, despite some late challenages from the away side.

Willow finally broke the deadlock via a Graham Whittaker header near the back post and it looked likely to be the winner until late in the half Bridge were awarded a penalty and Sean Barcoe made no mistake from the spot.

As the clock ran down, and the rain pelted down, Colm Hyland came off the bench to net not once but twice to put the tie beyond doubt and send Willow through to the next round.
