Intermediate Roundup

This weekend saw the Match Intermediate Cup First Round take place, and this meant a quiet week across the leagues, with four games taking place across two divisions.

The NAFL and the NI Intermediate league had no games at all, with the BPIL and Mid Ulster league seeing two games apiece, but goals were not in short supply in those games.

In Mid Ulster, upwardly mobile Richhill AFC romped to a 6-1 away win against lowly AFC Silverwood to stay hot on the tails of Hanover & Crewe United at the top of the table. The goals were shared about as well, with five different players making the scoresheet. David Ross netted a brace, while there was a goal apiece for Dodds, Rice, Quinn & Wright.

In the days other game, we saw another big away win, this time Windmill Stars travelled to Annagh to take on St. Marys, and they romped to a 5-0 win. The scoreline doesn’t tell the whole tale, however, as the game sat at 0-0 with 55 minutes on the clock. However, when the deadlock was broken, Star put the foot down and knocked in another four to put some gloss on the scoreline. Joe McLaughlin led the way with a hat-trick, with Raymond Fitzpatrick and David McCabe completing the scoring.

Next week sees the biggest game of the season so far as leaders Hanover welcome second-placed Crewe United to Brownstown Park.

In the Ballymena League, leaders Glebe Rangers were in action and they extended their lead at the summit with a comfortable 4-1 win over Cookstown RBL at the Riada. Davy Reid netted a hat trick, while David McWhirter making it four.

Meanwhile, Donegal Celtic got back to winning ways with an impressive 4-0 win at home to fellow BPIL new boys Ballymoney United at Celtic Park. The Celtic goals came from Anthony Philpott, Michael McClory and a brace from Stephen Flanaghan.

This weekend leaders Glebe are away to Coagh United, while Bangor & St James Swifts are both in Steel & Sons cup action, hosting East Belfast and Newington YC respectively in their quarter-final ties.
