With just 12 minutes left on the clock away to Ayrfield Utd. on Saturday, VEC were staring at an early exit from the LFA Junior Cup; that is until Joey Byrne (9) popped up with his 2nd goal on the day (click on pic.) and then Seamus Staunton heading in a powerful header with just 7 minutes remaining, to give VEC a deserved 3-2 win over the Leinster Senior League outfit.
The home team had opened the scoring with a well taken breakaway goal in the 17th minute and held onto that lead until the 53rd minute when Joey scored his first goal. VEC fell behind for a second time some 15 minutes later, before the second comeback in the 78th minute. We move on to the next round!
