️St Mary’s CBS Leinster Shield Semi-Final win over St Oliver’s Drogheda️

The CBS traveled all the way to Louth to face St. Oliver’s in the Leinster TY Shield semi-final. 
The TY squad faced difficult weather conditions after an early morning start ️
Both teams started the game strong with St Oliver’s striking first, putting them ahead 1-0. Before the half time break the ball fell to Captain Conor O’Callaghan️ and he slotted it in to the bottom corner to leave the sides equal at the break.

St Oliver’s kicked off the second half with a goal to leave St. Mary’s CBS trailing by 1.
But ten minutes before the final whistle Darren Brennan️ bagged a goal to leave the sides level. 
Just moments before the final whistle was due to be blown, Jack Egan was fouled inside the box to get a last minute chance to seal our place in the final.
Darren Brennan stepped up to take the penalty but unfortunately it was not to be as it went over the bar and the referee blew the whistle for full time, leaving both sides drained heading into 20 minutes extra time.
Both sides battled hard in both halves of ET but no team could break the deadlock bringing them to penalties.

The CBS scored 5 out of 5 penalties, St Oliver’s scored 4 penalties and as the last player for St. Oliver’s stepped up to take his penalty, William Graham O’Shea dove to the rescue to send the brothers through to the Leinster Shield final.
