Loughgall 4- 0 Tobermore United
LOUGHALL were just too good on the night for a below par Tobermore side. That said it was the visitors who threatened early on when Hugo Batista and Neil Lamont both tested home keeper Mark Robinson.
But it was the home side who broke the deadlock when Paul Keenan headed home a corner on 35 minutes and they doubled their advantage 5 minutes later when Dale Malone cleverly chipped the advancing Sammy Foster.
The home side dominated most of the second half and with 15 minutes to Marty Verner got Loughgall´s 3rd and Gregg Hall added the 4th in injury time.
Tobermore boss Johnny Law will be expecting a lot more from his side on Saturday if they are to have any chance against league favourites and current leaders Newry City who have maximum points from five games.
The game kicks off at 3.00pm and a large crowd is expected to welcome the side who were relegated from the Premiership last season but who expect to return at the first attempt
