It took some time to come, but Matt O’Sullivan’s goal with just five minutes of extra-time left to play was enough to see Midleton through to the quarter-finals of the U12 SFAI Skechers National Cup.

Travelling to St Francis of Athlone, the young Midleton players showed no signs of the long journey impacting on their game, but goals never materialised in normal time.

With additional minutes came even more pressure, but Matt O’Sullivan had the wherewithal to keep his focus, and when the opportunity came, he struck to send the visiting fans into raptures.

Having already beaten Killorglin in the round of 32, and now having taken the scalp of St Francis, all eyes will be in quarter-final draw which takes place next week.
