Loughgall 4 – 1 Annagh United

Holders Loughgall successfully saw off a spirited Annagh United to claim their place in the Bob Radcliffe Cup quarter finals.

After an uneventful start to the game, the opener came on 27 minutes and it was an excellent attacking move orchestrated by Shea McGerrigan.  The winger delivered an inch-perfect cross to allow Shea Campbell to volley home.

The lead lasted only three minutes however, when a corner was cleared to the edge of the penalty area and Dee McErlean’s blast was cruelly deflected past home ‘keeper Symon Ferguson by Glenn Waddell attempting to close down the shot.

The Villagers regained the ascendency when Davy Hawthorne unleashed an unstoppable drive into the bottom corner of the net giving ‘keeper Kyle Nelson no chance.

Loughgall grabbed two late goals to continue their excellent goalscoring start to the season, which now stands, at 25 goals in 6 games.

Firstly Paul McDowell fired into the front post from inside the penalty area on 85 minutes and in injury time Dean Smith slotted home a penalty after Andy McDonald tripped Glen Clarke in front of goal.
