The visitors dominated the opening half and after two one-on-one situations when Cade Cooke and Rory Brady were denied by Roger Mc Gilloway Carn took the lead mid way through the half when Cooke’s brilliant overhead kick from a Conor Doherty (S) right wing cross found the net. Then Dion Diver delivered a long diagonal ball into the edge of the area where Cooke controlled and hit a low shot across goal to the far corner of the net for 2 – 0. He then went on to complete his hat-trick after brother Dayton made a good run from his own half and laid off to Cade whose delightful chip from 18 yards dropped in below the crossbar. The home side came more into the game just before the interval. Christy Ivers had a long range free just over and the same player shot off target after a Karol Harkin knock down outside the box. Before the break a long delivery forward from John Downes was controlled by Jack Mc Laughlin – but after outpacing a defender and getting to the byeline his pullback into the Carn goalmouth met with no takers. Early in the second half Niall Mc Guinness slid a neat ground pass through to Cooke right in front of goal but he was forced wide by replacement keeper Kieran O’ Neill when he seemed certain to score. However, he did score his fourth when he accepted a pass from Michael Mc Dermott, sidestepped a defender and drilled a low shot past O’Neill. He could have had a fifth when he latched onto a long ball from Liam Shiels but he was denied by O’Neill. Rory Brady then hammered a Dayton Cooke left wing cross high into the net for Carn’s fifth and Dayton Cooke unleashed a low ground shot from distance to find the bottom corner and complete the scoring. Near the end Cade Cooke could have added to his tally but Ryan Mc Laughlin kicked off the goal line when an open goal beckoned and O’Neill then made an excellent claim in another one-on-one.
