A heroic performance from the Coagh United goalkeeper was not enough to stop ‘Stute sending through to the semi final of the Intermediate Cup. With the Coagh stopper in inspired form- it took a fine volley Micheal McCrudden to send the tie into extra time. Coagh took the lead in the 55th minute when Joel Bradley fired passed the helpless Marty Gallagher. Coagh held onto the lead for all of 10 minutes when their centre half misjudged a clearance and the ever alert McCrudden was on hand to volley home the equaliser. Coagh defended for their lives for the remainder of the game and therefore meant that the tie headed to penalties.
