Millstreet Celtic 2 DeCourcey Albion 1

We beat DeCourcey Albion 2-1 in the town park this morning to advance in the County Cup. The game was very scrappy for the first 15 mins but it was Millstreet that had the opening chance. Paul Dawson played in Tadhg Collins whose shot went just wide. DeCourcey had a penalty awarded 5 mins later but it was put wide.
