Carrigtwohill United 6 Lakewood Athletic 2
Scorers – Packie O’Connor 2, Derek Delea, Mark Collins, Shane Kennedy, Anthony Wolfe
A very comprehensive win by 6 goals to 2 in terrible conditions wind and a very soft pitch. The game just passed a pitch inspection and proved to be correct decision with us now advancing to the 1/4 final.
We got of to a excellent start scoring inside the first 90 sec with a great run and crisp finish from Mark Collins. We went further ahead from a clever free kick which was practiced for first time on the Tuesday before in training, Derek Delea hitting the post and follow up tapped in by Sane Kennedy. To be fair Lakewood had a couple of chances and scored a deserved goal making it 2 1. Two quick poachers goals by center forward Packie O’Connor just before half time ended the game as a contest.
Second half began with Lakewood playing with strong wind behind there back and forced few corners which we dealt with, and it was another clever corner which resulted in our 5th goal finished by new signing Anthony Wolfe on his debut. The former league of Ireland player adds huge experience to the team. Lakewood made it 5-2 and we got the last goal of the game with Derek Delea chipping the keeper to round off a great display.
