Reversal V Johnstown in Cup

Carrick Rovers 2-1 Johnstown
NECSL 17 Cup

Rovers 17 Div 1 team won a merited though hardfought victory over Navan rivals on the Convent Lands on Saturday last in this NEC Cup tie. Bear in mind that Johnstown rolled Rovers over the previous week in Navan and the value of this victory can be measured. It was based on a back 5 siege mentality which simply refused to buckle and when it did once, well into the second half, it was with fierce determination that they went after the victory that they earned.

After last week's 5-3 defeat at home to Park Celtic Summerhill, Carrick had the reverse leg this Saturday. The first half was a tense affair with both teams working hard and playing some nice football but afraid to push on in case they made any mistakes. The first real chance felt to the Park No. 15 who tried to chip Carrick keeper Aiden McMahon but he tipped it over the crossbar for a corner.
