Tonight's Irish Daily Mail FAI Cup Round One tie between Bray Wanderers and Finn Harps went to extra-time at the Carlisle Grounds, where it finished:
Bray Wanderers 1, Finn Harps 3
First Division Finn Harps have pulled off a cup shock as they have dumped Premier Division Bray Wanderers out of the FAI Cup.
It was a wonderful result for the in-from Donegal side who are now unbeaten in their last seven games.
Bray took the lead through Ger Pender on 15 minutes but Harps equalised on 64 minutes with Sam Todd finding the net.
With the scores still level after 90 minutes, the game went to extra-time and Mickey Place put Harps 2-1 ahead in the eighth minute of the first period.
And Harps then wrapped it up seven minutes into the second period of extra-time when recent arrival Jacob Borg struck with a lot shot into the corner of the net.
Bray began well and after early chances for Paul O'Conor and Pender, they deservedly took the lead on 15 minutes.
O'Conor slipped the ball into the path of Pender inside the box and he finished with real conviction as he fired past the diving Ciaran Gallagher, who went into te game having kept a club record six consecutive clean sheets.
But Harps came into the game before the break with Nathan Boyle and Mikey Place looking increasingly threatening.
Indeed on 37 minutes Place was through on goal but instead of shooting opted to try and pull the ball back for Jesse Devers but Bray cleared.
Moments later a John Kavanagh cross glanced off the woodwork as Harps went close to equalising.
Darragh Noone fired just wide of the target on 43 minutes as Bray had a chance of a second.
Chances were at a premium just after the break but Harps drew level on 64 minutes with defender Sam Todd (below) shooting beyond Evan Moran as he latched onto a Ciaran Coll throw-in to find the target.
Byron O'Gorman then raced in on goal after 73 minutes - as Harps' pleas for handball fell on deaf ears - but Gallagher came out well and the Bray player could not find the target.
With the prospect of extra-time looming, both sides pushed for a winner in the final ten minutes.
Gareth Harkin missed a late chance for Harps as he shot wide so the game went into extra-time.
Darragh Gibbons had a decent long-range effort for Bray before Harps took the lead eight minutes into the first period with Todd heading the ball into the path of the in-form Mikey Place who pounced from close range to score his fourth goal in five games.
And Borg then struck with the low shot for Harps' third to sink Bray after 112 minutes.
Bray's bad night was compounded two minutes from full time when Darragh Gibbons was sent off for a second yellow card offence.
