Royal School Dungannon advance to Danske Bank 4th Round
The Royal School Dungannon will play Aquinas in the 4th round of the Danske Bank Schools Cup after a convincing win against Belfast Metropolitan College.
The Dungannon school set a high tempo in the early stages of the match and were able to profit on a defensive error when Adam McConville slotted into an empty net. Belfast Met started to assert themselves in the game with good possession however it was RSD that struck again on the counter attack with Jonny McCammond curling his shot from the edge of the box into the top right corner.
In the second half Belfast Met made several changes as they looked to get back into the match which eventually paid off as they halved the deficit with a close range finish. This goal gave Belfast Met a new lease of life as they pushed for an equaliser in an extended period of added time and hit the woodwork before an excellent block from centre-half Calum MacGregor allowed RSD to break with Joshua Pinkerton securing their place in the 4th round with a left footed finish.
