U19s beaten at the Bowl

Sligo Rovers U19s suffered their tenth league defeat of the season as they were beaten 6-2 by UCD in the U19 Elite Division at the UCD Bowl on Saturday afternoon.

 
The Bit o'Red fell behind as early as the second minute of this contest via a close range header before the Students doubled their lead four minutes later. 
 
A corner from the left caught Sligo goalkeeper Adam Chambers unawares as the ball was carried by a cross breeze before it drifted into the net.
 
Despite being on the back foot, the away side rallied and halved UCD's lead with 19 minutes elapsed. 
 
Liam Flately's cross was neatly laid on to Cian Brennan by Darren Kilcawley before the Rovers captain slotted the ball past the UCD net-minder.
 
UCD restored their two goal lead straight from the resulting kick-off before they stormed into a 4-1 lead on 55 minutes. 
 
Four became five on the hour mark courtesy of a UCD penalty. The college side then made it 6-1 on 81 minutes. 
 
Although trailing by five goals, Gavin Dykes' side didn't shy away from their responsibilities throughout. They were somewhat rewarded on the stroke of full-time as Rovers sub Kyle Harrigan netted Rovers' second.
 
Rovers: Chambers, Selby, Donnellan, Boylan, Taheny, McManus, Nevin, Flately, Brennan, Kilcawley, Armstrong.
