Coleraine thump ten man Tobermore in Cup

TOBERMORE saw their attempts to reach the North West Senior Cup final, come to an abrupt end as they were handed a thumping by Coleraine last week.

Coleraine ran riot on ten man Tobermore at the Coleraine Showgrounds as the game finished 8-2 to the Bannsiders.

However, it was a largely even fixture until the Fortwilliam Park based side went down to ten men. The home side opened the scoring when Ryan McIlmoyle was given time and space to fire in the opening goal of the evening.

The home side soon found themselves pegged back when Jennings deflected a corner past his own keeper to level the scores.

Any shock result for Tobemore soon diminished when Millar was sent off for a harsh challenge on McNulty.

Coleraine opened the floodgates as McIlmoyle grabbed himself a hat-trick, Leon Knight scored twice and Scullion, David Ogilby and Coyle grabbed a goal each.

Tobermore did grab a consolatory goal from a well taken penalty by Sean Heneghan.

Coleraine will now face Institute in the final.
