HARPS HELD DESPITE BATTLING PERFORMANCE

first_imgMark Forker starts off another Finn Harps attack against Cobh Ramblers. Pic: Gary FoyIT’S hard to know what Finn Harps need to do to win these days.They appeared to have everything right against Cobh Ramblers in Ballybofey on Friday night – and still managed to drop points.Keith Cowan headed Harps into the lead on 17 minutes as the home side launched a series of attacks, and Michael Funston added a second ten minutes later. Cobh pulled one back three minutes later, and then equalised in the 67th minute.McHugh could have snatched all the points for Harps late on; but at least Peter Hutton’s team has ended a run of defeats – and there were some great performances in the side to give encouragement for the rest of the season.HARPS HELD DESPITE BATTLING PERFORMANCE was last modified: July 6th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
