Setanta Sports Cupdate 17/4/13

So both Setanta Sports Cup semi-finals are still wide open ahead of next week’s second legs, with Drogheda United taking a 2-0 lead with them to Sligo, while Cork City and Shamrock Rovers will resume at one-all in front of the cameras at Turner’s Cross.

Some notable updated lines from last night – 

Danny Murphy’s own goal for Shamrock Rovers against his own Cork City was the sixth scored in competition history, the first against Cork.

Had Rovers’ goal been credited to Mark Quigley, it would have been his 11th, drawing him level with Denis Behan and Peter Thompson.

Cork City are highest scorers in #SSCup history with 57. Linfield have 53, Glentoran 42, Derry City 41.

Daryl Kavanagh (Cork), Lee Lynch (Sligo) and Ciaran Kilduff (ShamR) are joint top scorers this season with three goals. Rory Patterson top-scored last season with six.

Last night’s one-all draw between Shamrock Rovers and Cork City was Rovers’ first ever in the #SSCup.

Sligo Rovers have played LOI opposition six times in the #SSCup – they’ve never won a game yet.

53 goals have been scored in the 2013 Setanta Sports Cup – one more than in 2012.

450 goals exactly have now been scored in Setanta Sports Cup history since 2005.
