Treaty United crash out of FAI Cup | HIGHLIGHTS

Treaty came into the game unbeaten in three, while Cork had been struggling, but the Leesiders are a division above domesticall and were favourites.

Treaty United were dumped out of the FAI cup last Saturday, as they fell to Premier Division side Cork City. The visitors ran out 2-0 winners at the Markets Field, in a rescheduled game which was given the go-ahead following a pitch inspection due to rain.

Second half goals from Barry Coffey and Tunde Owolabi were the difference as last year’s semi-finalists were dumped out.

Treaty came into the game unbeaten in three, while Cork had been struggling, but the Leesiders are a division above domestically, and were pre match favourites.

The sides were locked at 0-0 until the 54th minute, when a Barry Coffey corner found the head of Cian Coleman, who nodded past Treaty keeper Conor Winn.

Treaty’s Willie Armshaw had a fantastic afternoon, flying down the wing, but the diminutive wide man couldn’t muster enough to get his side back in the game.

Coffey was once again provider in the 77th minute, as he slipped Tunde Owolabi through on goal, and the forward finished calmly.

A scuffle ensued in added time, which saw Treaty defender Darren Nwankwo receive his second yellow card.

The final whistle rang out around the Markets Field, and Tommy Barrett’s side will be disappointed their cup campaign is over.

They must pick themselves up, as they face a trip to Wexford this Friday, hoping to keep their playoff push alive.
