FAI Junior Cup Round 4 V Ballyheane.
November 11, 2019
Manulla Fc advanced to round 5 and the last 64 of the FAI Junior Cup after a very hard-fought game V Ballyheane on Saturday.
The game was played in a very blustery Carramore and while Manulla played against the breeze in the first half they would feel they had the best chances going into the dressing rooms at halftime. The game was scoreless at the interval.
The second half had only just commenced when Manulla won a corner. During this period of play the Ballyheane keeper, who was very commanding of his area up to this point, went down injured and on the resumption of play failed to collect a corner that landed nicely for Sean Morrissey to plant a header to the net.
The game was a very stalemate for the remaining half after that with Ballyheane offering no shot on goal while Manulla scuffed two or three chances to extend the lead.
The game finished 1 nil to the home side.
