St. Joseph’s Provide Cup Upset
St. Joseph’s provided the biggest shock in the 2nd round of the Carlow League Shield with an excellent 4-3 win over Premier League Wolfhill Athletic in Tinryland recently. Joseph’s came from behind three times in the opening period through a John Doyle goal and a brace from Colm Doran. With the scores level at 3-3 at the interval, the home side upped their performance in the 2nd half, taking the game to their more fancied opponents from the restart. After missing a penalty on the hour mark, Shane Delaney quickly made amends to score the winner with 20 minutes remaining. St. Joseph’s were best served by Michael Moore, Brian Foster, Shane Delaney and John Paul Moore.
The Div 4 game between St. Joseph’s and Tullow Town which was to be held on Sunday last was postponed due to a bereavement.
