Finn Harps conceded a goal late in extra time to bow out of the FAI National League Cup following an enthralling semi-final against UCD at Finn Park yesterday.
Finn Harps . . . 1
UCD. . . .2
A late goal from Rob McGee in the second period of extra time gave the Students a dramatic win.
UCD had led at half time when they broke the deadlock just before the break through Sean Byrne.
However, Simon McGlynn, who has scored some important goals for Harps this year, grabbed an equaliser for the home side to send the game into extra time.
Just when it seemed this tie was heading to penalties, McGee’s goal proved decisive.
UCD will now have home advantage when they meet Galway United in the final of the competition.
