He added a second when he slotted home from just inside the penalty area in the 22nd minute.It was 3-0 before the half hour mark when Nathan Boyle dispossessed Cabinetry ‘keeper Cathal Gillen on the edge of his area and slotted the ball home.With the young Dublin goalkeeper making his debut aged just 16, his first 30 minutes was a true baptism of fire.Harps could have added further goals with another two chances falling to McHugh while Keith Cowan’s flick-on hit the post. Five minutes into the restart Karl Byrne gave he home side the smallest glimmer of hope with a superb individual effort.Byrne skipped past three Harps players before placing a superb shot past Ciaran Gallagher from 18 yards.Just three minutes later it could have been so different when Richie Purdy’s header came crashing off the woodwork for Cabinteely.That said, Damian McNulty also had an effort cleared off the line while McHugh also came close again.It looked like it was going to remain that way until Conor Foley scored in the 90th minute to make the added on time of her minutes a little nervous for Harps.
