Extra-time heroics earns Glen final date with Bride

Glen Rovers 1-19 Cloyne 3-11

And their reward is a final date with Bride Rovers.

Cloyne did come back at them in the second period, when a last-minute goal from Diarmuid O’Sullivan left only a point between the sides.

But the Glen survived for a win they deserved over the 90 minutes.

They very nearly lost it in normal time and it took a John Anderson penalty in the final minute to take the game to extra-time.

Cloyne led 1-5 to 0-7 at half-time and Conor Cusack got what looked to be the winning goal for Cloyne in the final minute to see them lead 2-10 to 1-12 with time running out, until Anderson’s penalty tied it all up at full time at 2-10 to 1-13.

Glen’s sterling play in extra-time saw them lead 1-18 to 2-11 at the break but credit to Cloyne, they never gave up.
