Rialto FC v VEC FC

A lovely header by Neill Love from a corner just before half-time gave us the lead. But it was short-lived as the home team equalised from the penalty spot just 3 minutes into the second half. 4 minutes later, a beautiful strike from Neill flew into the top corner for his 2nd score, only for Rialto to equalise once again immediately after and then go ahead with a scrambled goal in the 72nd minute. In the 90+3rd minute, with us pushing forward, they took advantage to slot home a 4th.

Shelbourne AFC v VEC FC

A match to forget! Two sweet strikes from the home team in the 30th & 32nd minutes gave them the momentum and any chance we had of getting back into this match was extinguished when we conceded a 3rd just after the re-start, added to by two further goals later in the game.

VEC FC v Harding IF FC

Despite a very good team performance, particularly from our ever-present rock at the heart of defence, Neill Love, table toppers Harding IF FC scored in the 32nd minute and again just on the blow for half-time to take all 3 points.

VEC FC v Malahide Utd.

This match was switched to Sean Walsh Astro in Tallaght, when the VEC pitches were declared unplayable. After conceding our first goal from a corner in the 17th minute, the same occurred just 5 minutes into the 2nd half, followed by a 3rd after 65 minutes. In truth, we never threatened their goalkeeper.
