Knockbreda hit Lurgan Celtic for seven at Breda Park and, but for the heroics of young 'keeper Caolan Cush, the rout could have been even more emphatic.

'Breda started well, dominating possession and creating three good chances in the opening minutes but could not take any.

That trend continued and eventually, in the last six minutes of the half, they struck with three quick-fire goals to ease anxiety. Patrick Cafolla helped himself to a double, sandwiching a rare goal from fullback Daniel Culbert.

In the opening few minutes Cafolla came close to claiming his hat-trick before Culbert doubled his tally just before the hour.

The visitors were then reduced to ten men following Jason Rogers' dismissal for dissent on 65 minutes with a further three goals arriving after this through Lloyd Anderson (2) and Brendan Bennett.
