St Joseph’s 1; Villa 3
The Villa came out on top in this game which was played in a heavy fog on Sunday morning.
St Joseph’s have put it up to several Premier League sides in cup competitions in recent years but on this occasion they made life difficult for themselves by having two players sent off (David Flynn and Anthony Phelan).
Following a scoreless first half, Villa took the lead from a Conor McDonald free kick on 65 minutes only for Clive Power to equalise five minutes later.
Kenny Purcell regained the advantage for Villa and Eoin Ginnety wrapped up the game three minutes from full time.
