UNDER 17 FAI CUP
Tralee Dynamos 2 Askeaton 1 aet
Dynamos just about shaded this contest getting the winner late in the 2nd half of extra time from the boot of captain fantastic David Rogers who responded quickest to coolly side foot to the net from 10 yards that sparked full team celebrations.
Dynamos opened the scoring after 12 minutes from a Tony Duggan corner. Askeaton to their credit created many chances throughout the game but time and time again were denied by Dynamos man of the match goalkeeper Darragh Reen. The highlight of his saves was a full length save from the penalty spot.

With the sides level at half time Dynamos had the clearest chance after Codi Dauti was taken down for a penalty. Codi took responsibility for the penalty but unfortunately blazed his penalty high over the bar.
The miss came back to haunt Dynamos as Askeaton equalised on 85 minutes from a corner that was headed to the top of the net for an o.g.
Dynamos had some very good performances all over the park with Nemanja at centre back alongside Patrick who absorbed a lot of pressure. David Rogers with his goal contributed greatly to the overall win.
