MUCFP v Finn Harps 5th July 2016

.
.The Monaghan United / Cavan FP entertained Donegal side Finn Harps on Tuesday of last week  in a rearranged SSE Airtricity Under 17’s National League fixture. The visitors started the sharper and were rewarded for their dominance in the 11th minute when they were awarded a free-kick 30 yards from the “Partners” goal. Niall McGinley stood over the ball for the “Harps” and quickly released Ryan Doran who’d made a clever late run in behind the defensive wall that the “Partners” had set up. Doran raced towards the edge of the area before driving a cross come shot in off the far upright giving Luke Perkins in home goals no chance. The move had obviously been worked on the training ground. The game was being played at a tremendous pace with both sets of players playing at a high intensity which led to a couple of bookings on both sides. Harps were having the better of the exchanges with their forward line of Ryan Cunningham, James Carolan and the very impressive Ryan Cunningham causing the home defence trouble every time they gain possession. They almost extended their lead in the 23rd minute when McGinley’s long range effort was expertly saved by Perkins. Carolan rattled the crossbar in the 38th minute. Callum Ross-Lynch replaced the injured Jordan Corraway for the “Partners” just before the interval. Although Finn Harps had had the better of the exchanges and had created more chances the two sides should have gone in at half-time on level terms after the “Partners” had been awarded a free-kick, Karl Cosgrove’s terrific delivery eluded everybody bar debutant Adam O’Connor at the back post but he was unable to steer his header inside the upright.
