VEC Advance in LFA Junior Cup

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!
