Spartak 3, Broadford 0

A comprehensive victory over local rivals is always pleasant, and the manner of the win was pleasing.

A solid defensive performance, a clean sheet, and important contributions from the bench all helped.

Dale Mullins put the Sky Blues ahead , racing on to Steve Grier’s pass to neatly convert. Jason Fenlon and Tom O’Driscoll had opportunities to add to the score, Jason fired over and Tom just failed to connect when racing on to a long pass.

Tom then struck the crossbar with a thunderous effort from distance to lay down a marker at the start of the second period, but it was not till late on that Spartak added two more, Neil McGowan shooting in on 79 minutes after a Conor Callis corner was half cleared, and then Neil, Conor Callis and Niall Hanratty combined to put Jeff Gamble in for a third with just three minutes remaining.
