Redcastle Res 3
Aileach Youths 1
Redcastle started well and had chances though Stephen Davenport and Terry Mc Colgan but both failed to hit the target. Ryan Mc Daid had a long range effort for Aileach but failed to keep his shot down. Davenport then turned inside the box but his rising effort cleared the bar. James Breslin was then denied by Clarke in the Aileach goal who blocked a goal bound effort with his legs. Clarke was alert again soon after denying Michael Bonner with a smart save. Redcastle’s pressure eventually told when Shane Mc Colgan fired a well struck left footed effort to the top corner from just inside the box. Evan Craig then crossed for James Breslin to head powerfully home. Aileach got a goal back before halftime when Patrick Curran crossed for McDaid to slot home. Redcastle started the second half on the front foot and increased their lead when Davenport headed a Craig corner home from close range. Both teams cancelled each other out for a period after this, with defences on top. As full time approached James
Breslin headed another Craig corner wide while Joe Mc Laughlin scooped the ball over from close range for the visitors.
