Redcastle United 2
In an entertaining game Redcastle began well and on 5 minutes Paul McGowan fed Brendan Murphy but his effort was blocked by a defender. The visitors broke the deadlock on 22 minutes after Murphy broke through the home defence before firing low past David Bell from twenty yards. The point responded and Josh McLaughlin turned well on the edge of the area but his effort was well saved by Michael McCole before McLaughlin fired just wide from the edge of the area.On the stroke of half time they got back on terms after Paul Hegarty played a on two with McLaughlin and fired high past McCole from twenty two yards. Five minutes into the second period they took the lead when Adam harkin advanced on the left before squaring for Hegarty to fire low to the corner from fifteen yards. But Redcastle equalised minutes later when Shaun Curran fired a superb free kick to the top corner from twenty five yards. On the hour mark Murphy broke clear but with bell to beat dragged his effort across the face of goal and wide in a real let off for the home side. The home side pressed and Cathal McColgan had two efforts both well saved by McCole. Redcastle had the final chance after substitute Michael Bonner advanced on the right into the area but from a tight angle drove into the side netting as the honours ended even.
