Division Three - Quarter Finals

Kick Off: Thursday 2nd February 2017 at 14:00
Location: Whelan Park
Referee: To be Confirmed

Teams: Rathmines College of Further Education 2 vs Cork College of Commerce 2

Rathmines needed a penalty shoot out to overcome their biggest challenge yet from Cork College of Commerce at Whelan Park.

Cork took the lead on the half hour mark when Owen Collins dispatched a penalty. John Quinlan's side almost got into the half time break level until John Tambwe equalised on the stroke of half time.

Neither side could break the other down in the second half and the game was sent to extra time when Jason Conway thought he had won it for the Munster men when his long range effort in the first period of extra time hit the back of the net.

Cork were seconds away from the semi-final but again could not keep Rathmines out when needed most and Quinton Drapeau's equaliser took the game to extra time where Tambwe stepped up for the crucial spotkick and sent Rathmines into the semi-final.
