St. Michael's chasing further cup glory.
Big cup games are coming thick and fast for St. Michael's who are in FAI Junior Cup action for the second successive week on Sunday.
Last weekend they knocked nine past Clodiagh Rangers in the third round and take on BT Harps in round four this Sunday at 2pm, again in Cooke Park.
A win there will take them into the fifth round, a stage already reached by both Clonmel Town and Clonmel Celtic.
Last Sunday St. Michael's fitness and workrate always had Clodiagh Rangers on the back foot and it was one-way traffic, particularly in the second half once the visitors began to sag.
Although Saints keeper Adrian Walsh had to be quick off his line to save from Mark Quinlan in the seventh minute, the home side eventually made the breakthrough in the 13th minute when Richie Ryan rose highest to head home a John O’Brien cross.
It was 2-0 three minutes later when Jimmy Carr headed home a David Slattery cross.
Despite the almost incessant pressure after that, the home side were unable to extend the lead before the break, and had to wait until ten minutes into the second period before they grabbed a third goal courtesy of Ollie O’Driscoll.
It was 4-0 in the 62nd minute through Paul Breen and David Slattery made it five shortly after as the floodgates opened.
O'Driscoll got his second and his side’s sixth before Luke Quinn then hit a rapid hat-trick with three close range finishes in the final ten minutes to put a real gloss on the result.
