Letterkenny Rovers 0
Athlone Town 1
(after extra time)
Letterkenny Rovers bowed out of the FAI Senior Cup on Tuesday night, but not without giving Athlone Town a real scare at Leckview Park.
Athlone scored their winner three minutes from the end of extra time when Alan O’Sullivan finished off a flowing move to win the tie.
Rovers were really impressive and almost snatched a winner right at the end of normal time but Steve Okakpu Emeka’s wonderful header came crashing back off the crossbar.
And while Rovers clearly tired as the game entered extra time, Kevin McGrath almost won it when his effort was saved by Ryan Coulter in the visiting goal.
But with penalty kicks looming, O’Sullivan’s last gasp winner sent Athlone into the next round
