Newbuilding United deservedly won the North West Senior Cup last night! Institute FC would like to congratulate all at Newbuildings on their historic success and wish every success for the remainder of the season.
NEWBUILDINGS United produced a tremendous come-back to secure this season’s North West Senior Cup, after a 5-3 penalty shoot-out win, at Institute last night (Tuesday).
Trailing 2-0 after half-hour, two quick goals from Stephen Wallace and Ricky Lee Dougherty meant the sides were level and could not be separated and the tie went to penalties, with experienced midfielder Gregory McIvor tucking home the winning spot-kick.
Institute broke the deadlock on seven minutes when Michael McCrudden’s left wing cross found Stephen Parkhouse, but his close range header was superbly saved by Corey Wilson, but Aaron Walsh was on hand to turn home the loose ball.
Minutes later the visitors had a super chance to level things when Ricky Lee Dougherty broke in behind ’Stute captain Paddy McLaughlin, but with his weaker left foot failed to trouble Michael Doherty and fired well wide.
