GLEBE OB 3

BALNAMORE 0

Local rivals Glebe Rangers OB and Balnamore clashed in this cup quarter-final at Megaw Park having each had one victory in the two league fixtures this season.

Glebe suffered an early blow when John McKendry set a record for the shortest appearance in league history as he hobbled off after five seconds having suffered a calf pull.

Despite this the Old Boys took the lead as Walls notched his first of the season after 18 minutes. With half-time approaching top scorer Stephen Elder made it two with a close range finish.

The second half was a close fought affair with both teams having chances. In particular Aaron Reilly produced a fantastic reflex save to deny Armstrong whilst Glebe appeared to be denied a stonewall penalty when Sheppard was clipped going past the diving James Elder. With Colin McFetridge a rock in defence since his Lazarus-like return from serious injury, Glebe put the result beyond doubt with a late third. Paul Holmes, another on the comeback trail, shot home from just outside the box to send the Old Boys through to the semi-final.
