Knocked out on Penalties!

This was a great goal from Aidan Hyland after just 10 minutes against Fairview Celtic in the Challenge Cup match in the Dublin Port Stadium on Saturday. However, shortly after half-time VEC lost centre-back Neal Breslin for a ‘last man’ tackle, compounded by the home team equalizing, and then going ahead in the 78th minute. Their lead was short-lived, as Aidan scored his second goal a minute later and brought the game to extra-time. Joey Byrne then scored for VEC before Fairview equalized once again, bringing the game to a penalty shoot-out, where we missed one, and they scored their 5, knocking us out of the Cup!

It was not a good day for VEC, as our 2nds were knocked out of the MMI Cup by Stedfast Utd.
