Culdaff FC                     1

Glengad United           9

A severely depleted and under strength home side suffered one of their heaviest defeats in years against a rampant Glengad outfit. The defending league champions took the lead in the opening minute when a speculative Patrick McDermott effort looped over Pauric O Donnell in the home goal. Culdaff replied with Eugene McLaughlin flashing a corner across the face of goal but there were no takers before Noel McLaughlin intercepted a loose pass but drilled well wide. On 15 minutes after a scramble in the area both McDermott and John McDaid had efforts which came back off the bar to Nigel McMonagle who crossed for McDaid to head home. Culdaff  got a goal back midway through the half when a Ryan Greene free found Dillon Ruddy who slotted home at the back post despite the best efforts of Kevin McLaughlin. Two excellent finishes from McMonagle and Matthew Byrne inside five minutes made it four one. The home side kept battling and Michael Coyle had a superb header brilliantly saved by McLaughlin. From the corner by Eugene McLaughlin it was Ryan Greene ‘s header which came back off the post and Michael Coyle fired the rebound over. On the stroke of half time a defensive error allowed Terence Doherty to race clear and round O’Donnell to slot home. Glengad increased their lead on 51 minutes when O’Donnell saved well from McMonagle but in the scramble the ball deflected off a defender to the net. Substitute Paul McDermott then broke clear but his chip sailed over the bar while at the other end a Noel McLaughlin effort was straight at keeper McLaughlin. With the home side tiring badly Doherty slammed home his second of the game after good work from McMonagle. Two late goals from Paul McDermott completed the rout.
