VEC Advance in Thriller!

Man-of-the-match Neill Love is congratulated after slotting in the winning penalty for VEC against Boghall Rovers, after this Richard Knight Cup match finished 4-4 after extra-time. 4-1 down after 60 minutes (Rob Newe scored our goal) meant we had it all to do to stay in the Cup. Player/manager Carl O’Gorman’s first goal for the Club soon after gave us hope and then that man Love rose high to score from a corner, before an exquisite strike from Shane O’Connor with just 8 minutes remaining brought the match to extra-time. In the shoot-out, Oisin Kinsella, Conor Lewis, Joey Byrne and Neill Love all converted for VEC, while the home team had two of their penalties saved by Richie Hannify.
