Banbridge Rangers

The early exchanges of this game were fairly even, with Banbridge coming closest to opening the scoring by testing Larmour twice from long-range free-kicks. The away side broke the deadlock on twenty minutes, when a long ball deceived the Saintsí defence, leaving Brian Newell free to lob Larmour from the edge of the area. In response, Saintfield went close to equalising when Craig Bowmanís shot narrowly cleared the crossbar, but thereafter Rangers dominated the play. Before the break they twice had the ball cleared off the line, whilst Larmour was forced into a number of smart saves, including denying Newell his second goal when he broke free of the home defence.

The second half was only five minutes old when a deflected Rangersí shot fell to Neil Clydesdale in the Saintfield penalty area, before he spun and slotted the ball into the goal to double the advantage. Scott Ward then went close to sealing the victory, but put his header past the post. Midway through the half, the home side sparked into life and created their best opportunity when Adam Childs sent James Sofley clear down the right, but James Milligan couldnít convert the subsequent low cross. Sofley then tested McMullan at his near post with a stinging drive, before a Banbridge defender struck his own post from Milliganís cross. In the end, the Saints were unable to reduce the deficit and Banbridge held on to comfortably advance to the next round.
