Glentoran 7 Killymoon Rangers 0

Killymoon made the journey to East Belfast to take on Irish Premier League side in the second round of the Irn-Bru League Cup last Tuesday.

It was the home side who started the game on the front foot and it took them only four minutes to get into the lead. Jim O’Hanlon netted from a tight angle.

On eight minutes it was two when David Howland played in Carson who rounded the keeper and side footed home.

Former Northern Ireland international Gary Hamilton made it three when he volleyed past McElhatton. Despite the Glens being in control of the tie Killymoon did creat neumber of chances. Brownlee was unlucky not to score after being put through by McMullan. Young was also unlucky not to score as he latched onto a Brownlee knock down but fired over.

McElhatton had to be on his toes as he made several good saves prior to the half time interval.

Glentoran started from where they had left off and Callacher was somehow missed from six yards out. Brownlee once again went close for the Moon but he shot narrowly wide. Hamilton soon grabbed a fourth for the Glens as he slotted past McElhatton from twenty two yards out. The goals kept coming as Richard Gibson nodded home from a Hamilton corner to grab the fifth goal.

McElhatton was in fine form in the latter stages of the tie as he made a number of top quality saves. The home side rounded off the scoring with two quick fire goals from sub Darren Boyce.

Killymoon Rangers would like to thank all of their supporters who travelled to Belfast to cheer on the team.
