Spartak 3, Kilbarrack Utd 2

Man of the match Owen McCormack scored a header and an well taken opportunist goal to add to a fine performance at centre back.

The visitors were a good side, moved the ball well and could all play a bit, so the Sky Blues were under early pressure. However the defence played solidly throughout and kept the marauding forwards at bay with good tackle, blocks and interceptions.

A good move between Chris Hogan and Jason Fenlon saw the latter’s cross driven across goal, where a defender inadvertently deflected it in for the lead goal. Spartak had a flurry of chances following a corner, but snatched at each, before Kilbarrack broke at pace to secure an equaliser.

The Sky Blues’ response was instantaneous, with Owen McCormack nodding in Dale Mullins’ corner at the back post.

A solid second half performance saw the three points safe, after Owen McCormack took advantage of a goalkeeper’s misplaced pass to shoot in first time, left footed, from 25 yards. 3-1.

Kilbarrack got one back after Greg Byrne’s great save was followed in for the rebound by a forward.

But Spartak held firm and the points were secure.
