Another dramatic semi-finals night with Cork City seemingly scoring a late winner against Shamrock Rovers at Turner’s Cross only for Shamrock Rovers to score an even later leveller to send them through to the May 11 Final on away goals.
Some key lines from last night –
Shamrock Rovers’ late late equaliser at Turner’s Cross was the eight time in 14 games this season Cork City have conceded after the 85th minute (h/t @trevorcarey1982)
Sligo Rovers’ 1-0 win over Drogheda was their first in the #SSCup over #LOI opposition, but still lost the tie overall.
Daryl Kavanagh is now outright top scorer in the #SSCup this season on four goals.
Five of the all-time top 20 #SSCup scorers are still in the competition – Mark Quigley, Gary O’Neill, Thomas Stewart, Billy Dennehy, Ciaran Kilduff (all ShamR)
Denis Behan and Peter Thompson remain as joint top scorers on 11 goals, and pnly Mark Quigley on 10 can realistically surpass them this season.
Shamrock Rovers’ two draws against Cork City are the only two they’ve ever had in the competition.
Drogheda United are through to their third final – a new record. They’ve won the previous two.
Drogheda are also the only club to win the competition more than once – in 2006 and 2007.
