Venue: The Cragg, Tulla

The visitors had the better of the first quarter and only a goal line clearance by Dara Ryan and a great save by Luke Woodrow kept the game level.

In the fifteen minutes before half time the home side started to dominate and good deliveries by Jack McSweeney from a corner and a subsequent free kick saw a Diarmuid Molloy header blocked and an Éanna Culloo effort scrambled clear.

The second half saw both defences dominate with Dara and Fionn Ryan, Diarmuid Molloy and Adam McNamara were rock solid at the back for Tulla United.

Simon Kilker replaced the injured Luke Woodrow in goals with 20 minutes to go and the impact of fellow substitutes Oisin O’Connor, Eoin Hassett and James Wallace saw Tulla United push back a tiring Douglas Hall.

Deep in added time, Adam McNamara played in Eoin Hassett and he cooly beat the advancing keeper to set off wild celebrations.

A minutes silence was observed before the game to remember the late Ger Gunning, father of the club’s U17 player Dillon.

Tulla Utd will face Midleton FC in the MFA U19 semi-finals on April 23rd with a venue to be decided. The other semi-final sees Ennis Town take on Tramore. Turners Cross in Cork will host the final.

Tulla United: Luke Woodrow; Adam McNamara, Fionn Ryan, Dara Ryan, Diarmuid Molloy; Jack McSweeney, T.J. Dillon, Eanna Culloo, Fiachra Hale, Emmett Lynch, David Cunningham.

Subs used; Simon Kilker, Oisin O’Connor, Eoin Hassett, James Wallace.
