16 Mar 2016 - 19:15Loughside - Quarter final SBYL league cup

Carryduff into the semi finals after defeating a hard working well organised Bangor side.

Goals from Joseph Tunney and a first goal for Rhys Worthington eased Carryduff into the last four.

Carryduff came out flying and should have taken the lead before they did, but for Bangors goal keeper who was excellent he made good stops from Rory Timoney , Declan Magee and Jamie Wilkinson.

Harry Graham and Rhys Worthington were dominating midfield and driving us forward , Harry was unlucky with a stinging drive which went just wide with the keeper beaten.

Jamie Wilkinson was unlucky with a shot across goal after bursting down the right and firing an effort across the keeper unfortunately there was no Carryduff player following it in.

The Carryduff defence were superb on the night Aidan Martin was a tower of strength breaking up Bangors attacks and driving us forward with Eamon Swail alongside him sweeping up any danger and protecting Ewan Wilson in the Carryduff goal.

Odhran Sherry at left back was bombing up and down the wing linking up well with Declan Magee to cause problems for Bangors defence.

With the score level at half time we made a change moving Matthew O’Rourke from midfield to centre back and moving Eamon Swail to right back , Matthew was having a super game in front of the defence but Eamons pace down the right was what we thought would break down Bangors stubborn defence.

When the break through came it was a great strike from Joseph Tunney who took the ball down went past his marker and hit an unstoppable effort over the keeper from 25 yards.

Rhys Worthington was having a great game in the centre of midfield but found himself in the referees note book after what i thought was a great tackle, the referee thought he was a bit late however Rhys continued to push forward and didnt let the booking affect his game he added the finish after a goal mouth scramble to make the game safe.

We made a few changes with Gary Topping and Matthew Winchester coming on and linking up well down the right , and Joe Tolan and Rory Gorman coming on to help see the game out before we welcomed back Jude Lynam after recovering from a broken wrist.

We were not at our best in this game but came away with what we set out to do and progress into the semi finals.
