Lurgan Town National League U12’s took on Killyleagh in the NIBFA Cup and with both sides coming off the back of good results in the previous round this was set to be a competitive game.
With a good home crowd Lurgan had a slight advantage and went at Killyleagh from the off with quick goals from Jesse Turner getting 2 and Callum Carson 1. Lurgan settled the quicker of the two teams but Killyleagh did cause Town a few problems and got themselves a freekick that was stuck in the top corner leaving the keeper no chance.
Soon after they got another one from a corner after some sloppy defending. That was the wake up call Town needed and from the restary Lurgan pulled ahead again wit TJ getting onto a defence splitting ball to make it 4-2 at the break.
Both teams played some cracking football before Lurgan extended their lead further with another 2 goals. They hadn’t finished just yet and after some fantastic passing football from the defence right through midfield the ball was worked to Jesse Turner who got his hat trick and goal of the day. Final result Lurgan Town 7- 2 Killyleagh.
Lurgan now await to see who they play in the last 16.
