Irish Cup: Fourth Round recap

The eight sides to make it through to the senior stages of the Samuel Gelston's Whiskey Irish Cup have been revealed following Saturday's fourth round ties. 

In one of two all-Premier Intermediate League games Bangor defeated Limavady United 2-1 at The Showgrounds. 

The Seasiders moved in front through veteran striker Michael Halliday midway into the first half, only for Alex Pomeroy to level for the Roesiders less than ten minutes later. David Hume then bagged the winner for Bangor on 67 minutes. 

They will be joined by Banbridge Town after their 5-3 win over Ballymacash Rangers at the Bluebell Stadium. 

Niall Cassidy kicked the scoring off for Banbridge after ten minutes with Zach Barr levelled for 'Cash on 37 minutes. Cassidy struck again just before the break with Stephen McCavitt [2] and Adam Hamilton scoring either side of the hour to fire the visitors into a commanding lead. 

Barr and then Jack Smith did pull a couple of goals back for Rangers but Banbridge held on to claim their place in the next round.

Moyola Park were top scorers on the day with a six-goal haul away to Bourneview Mill. Remarkably scoreless at the break, Ian Parkhill hit a 14-minute hat-trick early in the second half with Tom Patchett, Jake McNeill and Michael Smith also registering on the scoresheet.

Completing the PIL contingent are Dollingstown after they got past Windmill Stars by the odd goal in five. Joseph McLaughlin had given Stars the advantage just before the half-hour mark but goals from David McCullough and Gary Liggett later in the first half tipped the balance back in favour of the Dollybirds. 

Brendan Tumilty levelled for the home side with ten minutes remaining, but it fell to Mark McCabe to claim Dollingstown's winner not long after that.

Tandragee Rovers raced into a two-goal lead inside the opening 13 minutes at home to Oxford Sunnyside after Matthew Henning and Neill Allen found the net. Allen struck again early in the second half while Gabriel Palko knocked home a late consolation for the visitors. 

St. Mary's YC got past Crewe United after extra-time. Ciaran Murphy opened the scoring for Crewe as early as the sixth minute, a lead they held until the 84th minute when Ciaran McCann levelled for St. Mary's. However, goals from Niall Robinson and Aje Dasilva in the 104th and 117th minutes saw the Portadown side come through to progress. 

Josh Rohdich and Chandler Douglas were on target for Ballymoney United as they got past Finaghy, while Patrick McCafferty and Conall Cunningham struck for Crumlin United as they made it through at Greenisland's expense.
