Soccer – Harps Win, Fanad Lose & Morrison Bags 4 in EA Sports Cup

There was mixed results for Donegal clubs in Monday night’s first round of the EA Sports Cup. Finn Harps progressed to round two with victory in Ballybofey while Fanad United lost out away to Monaghan United.
At Finn Park, Harps as expected defeated the visiting Mayo League. After five minutes they were 1-0 up thanks to an og by Mayo defender David Reilly. Two minutes into the second half James Doherty played through Kevin Mc Hugh for his third goal of the campaign. Harps held on to win 2-0.
Fanad almost pulled of the shock of the round at Gortakeegan. The Donegal side took the lead against Monaghan on thirty-eight minutes with a goal from Eunan Kelly. It look as if the Ulster Senior League Champions were set for victory but Monaghan scored two goals in three dramatic minutes of injury time to steal the win.
Elsewhere last night  Cillian Morrison scored four goals in UCD’s 6-1 win over Waterford. The Letterkenny hot shot forward bagged a hat trick in the opening 21 minutes of the game.
