Arc Rovers 2
Satellite Taxis 1
DEBUTANTS Arc Rovers denied last season’s beaten finalists Satellite Taxis a place in the last eight of this season’s Sport Gear Direct Shield competition following their hard fought 2-1 win at Deerpark Secondary School last Saturday morning.
Satellite found themselves one down inside two minute when Dean Cummins scored and conceded a second to Shane Murphy ten minutes later. Ray Hallissey’s charges piled on the pressure in the second 45, missing a penalty, hitting a post and forcing the opposing keeper into a number of excellent saves.
Their only reward was a consolation from Shane Doody in injury time.
At least one team outside the top flight is guaranteed to be in the draw for the last four after Arc were paired with unbeaten Jason O’Neill Electrical in the quarter-final draw on Sunday morning.
