Crusader Colts reach Harry Cavan Youth Cup Final

Tonight's semi final of the Harry Cavan Youth Cup saw Lisburn Distillery III's take on Crusaders Colts at Solitude.

The game was played at a high tempo and both teams probed each others defences.

The breaking point came on the 30th min when Crusaders No 7 Lloyd Anderson scored with a bullet header from just inside the 6yrd box. 

It was game on and Lisburn Distillery took 11 mins (41min) to draw level when number 7 Darius Roohi slotted home a penalty.

Again both sides tried hard to get a half time lead but alas the half ended all square.

Half Time: Crusaders Colts 1 - 1 Lisburn Distillery III's

The "Crues Colts" came out all guns blazing in the second half and in a 4 minute period the score became 4-1.

The first of the goal fest came on the 65th min when Crusaders sub Aaron McClean scored and this was followed by a brace from No 9 Brandon Doyle.His first came on the 67th min after a one on one with the Lisburn Distillery keeper and this was followed by the keeper being beaten on the 69th min by Doyle the 69th min who slid the ball home from close range on the near post.

Lisburn Distillery tried to come back but they were never going to turn this game around and in the end Crusaders Colts were just too strong.

Full Time: Crusaders Colts 4 - 1 Lisburn Distillery III's
