Rustlers CFAI Cup
DkIT 1-0 IT Carlow
DkIT pulled off a major scalp to dethrone seven-in-a-row chasing IT Carlow in the Rustlers CFAI Cup on Wednesday afternoon.
Dundalk FC's Jack O'Keefe proved the match-winner with virtually the last kick as Liam Burns' men made it
The winners enjoyed the better of the opening-half, without finding a way past Carlow's keeper. However, they were dealt a blow shortly after half-time when defender Emmet Hughes was given his marching orders on a second
Carlow began to take control after this, but a resilient DkIT defence - led by Warrenpoint Town's Anto Reilly - held them out and the hosts capitalised, hitting the Barrowsiders with a decisive blow in the final minute.
DkIT: Ronan Browne, Cian O’Flynn, Sam Reilly, Anto Reilly, Emmet Hughes, Deane Watters, Conor McDonald, Seán O’Connor, Conor Haggans, Carlton Ubaezouno, Jack O’Keefe
Subs: Conor Tully, Colm Gill
