Rovers have won the FAI Cup on a record 24 occassions

Rovers eased their way into the last 16 of the FAI Cup helped by two early goals from McCabe and Kilduff. Sheriff YC battled all the way but two further goals in the second period from Ciaran Waters and sub Eamon Zayed gave a fair reflection on the overall play. Ronan Finn was awarded the Ford man of the match.

ball5[GOAL 0:1 - 2nd min.] Rovers hit the front when Ronan Finn controlled Waters pass to cross low into the path of Gary McCabe who emphatically finished into the top corner of the net.


ball5[GOAL 0:2 - 6th min.] It was 2-0 four minutes later, Ronan Finn again the provider for Ciaran Kilduff to head home from close range.


Larkin shot high and wide for Sheriff when well placed and on 15 minutes Rob Cornwall found Kilduff who controlled the ball well to pick out Gary McCabe but this time his shot went over the bar.Kilduff went close on 23 minutes but 'keeper Peter Halpin advanced to block his effort.

 

The game flagged a little in the evening sun but on 38 minutes a Sheriff corner saw Joseph Flood rise to meet the ball but he couldn't keep his header on target. Rovers broke quickly and only good defending from O'Brien denied Kilduff a header on goal.


Just before the break Simon Madden burst into the Sheriff box but his shot hit the side-netting while at the other end Keith Dunne tested Craig Hyland with a low driven shot from inside the box.


ball5[GOAL 0:3 - 49th min.] Rovers increased their lead with a goal of real class from a counter-attack. Finn and McCabe combined to cross low to the back post where Ciaran Waters was on hand to pick his spot and score into the corner of the net.


Rovers continued to dominate with Cornwall denied by the feet of Halpin on 53 minutes. On 62 ninutes sub Eamon Zayed chased a long ball but was denied by defender Kavanagh. Zayed could have added to the score a minute later when Finn released him into the box on the right-hand side but his shot failed to hit the target.


ball5[GOAL 0:4 - 64th min.] The Libiyan international got on the scoresheet when Finn again provided the through ball for Ciaran Waters and he drew the 'keeper before crossing low for Zayed to tap the ball into the empty net.


Rovers had other chances before the end of the game but their shooting was a little wayward in the closing minutes. Sub Karl Sheppard had a good chance to score on 80 minutes but he dragged his shot wide with just the 'keeper to beat. Sheriff almost grabbed a consolation goal two minutes from time but Kevin Lynch saw his header go just wide.
