Rearcross Youths 0 - BT Harps Youths 5
Rearcross entertained BT harps with Rearcross looking to bounce back from an unfortunate defeat to Nenagh Celtic. It was clear from the start the BT harps were up for this game and had the better of the opening chances and Stevie Nolan had the ball in the net after 20mins lucky for Rearcross it was disallowed for offside. BT harps kept the pressure up and eventually got a deserved goal from Robert O’Connell. The premier league side showed their strength and despite good defensive play from Brian Carey and Paul Ryan grabbed three goals before the half time whistle with strikes from Eric Quinlan who scored in the middle of two goals from Dylan Loughnane. Rearcross played much better after the interval and began to get a foot hold in midfield with Kevin Connolly and Evan Gleeson going close. The Second half was overall a lot more even with both teams having chances. With ten minutes left BT Harps wrapped up what was a comfortable victory with Eric Quinlan racing onto a through ball and riffling into the home teams net.
