BALLYMUN UNITED………1 DUBLIN UNIVERSITY 2 (aet)
SEAN HOLLAND PROVED TO BE the Dublin University super-sub hero with a dramatic winner in the dying minutes of extratime – just as it looked as if this Metropolitan Cup clash would be decided by penalties.
Ballymun will rue missed opportunities in this LSL Cup tie at the Iveagh Grounds but they did take the lead early on through Jason George Mykegt only for the men from Trinity to level the game on the half-hour mark through Jason Boateng.
Both sides went close but good goalkeeping by Daniel Grace and Stephen Robinson and some wayward shooting sent the game into extratime. It looked like going to spot kicks but Holland made a decisive strike to the delight of his team mates leaving the ‘Mun little o no time to salvage the game out of the fire.
