IT Sligo

Airtricity U19 League of Ireland - Elite Division

  • by

    Drogheda U19s returned from the west this afternoon in great spirits following a well-deserved 2-1 win over Sligo Rovers.

    Fionn Reilly was the first on the scoresheet on 38 minutes when his well-taken free kick got the better of the Rovers netminder.

    Centre-mid Luke Coates added a second just before half-time in the 42nd minute after some great personal skill in the Sligo box.

    Try as they might Sligo were unable to get the better of the hungry young Drogheda side until Cian Brennan got a goal back for the westerners from a free in the 75th minute.

    A nail-biting 15 minutes ensued as Drogheda valiantly hung on to take all 3 points back to the Boyneside.
