Peters Bow Out On Penalties

Sunday 6th November 2011. FAI Junior Cup 3rd Round
St Peters 3-3aet Carrick Rovers. Carrick Rovers win 4-2 on pens.

Goalkeeper Clint Marron was hero of the day for Carrick Rovers as they knocked St Peters out of the FAI Junior Cup at the 3rd Round stage of the tournament.

To be fair to the visitors, Rovers should have wrapped things up well within the 90 minutes of normal time but credit to Peters as they plugged away to come from behind twice before taking an extra time lead, albeit a short lived one.

In a very heated encounter, with the score locked at 2-2 at full time, St Peters took an unlikely lead in the 2nd period of extra time when David Donohoe slotted the ball past Marron in the Carrick goal. But the joy was short lived as with 1 minute left on the clock, Carrick were awarded, and scored, a penalty to send the game to a shoot-out where Marron guessed correctly twice to send Carrick through to the 4th round draw.
