Boys Man Up As Willow Bow Out

Sunday 24th February 2013. Leinster Senior Cup 3rd Round
Willow Park 1-2 St Kevin’s Boys

Willow Park missed out on a plum draw against fellow Midlanders, Longford Town, after bowing out of the Leinster Senior Cup at the hands of St Kevin’s Boys.

While a tough challenge was always in store for the home side, they gave away far too many needless free kicks throughout the the game, which made the battle even harder.

St Kevin’s took a first half lead when goalkeeper Ian Bolger and centre back Jimmy Mullally collided trying to block Mark Sommers attack on goal. As the ball popped out of the bunch, Sommers got to his feet first to fire the ball into an empty net. The home side thought they would have the chance to level things from the spot when a St Kevin’s player appeared to handle the ball inside the penalty area, however their claims were waved away by the referee.

The visitors doubled their lead in the second half with a well struck shot on the turn from Joe Watson, before Willow pulled one back when substitute Mark Nicholson fired home from close range.

As both sides battled on, Willow grew in strength but alas they couldn’t convert their chances and the tie went the way of St Kevin’s Boys.
