Cambridge House took the lead after 25 minutes through a Kane Carley goal following a mix up in the Cullybackey defence. Before this, chances for both teams were limited and neither goalkeeper had much action. The second half was a different story and it wasn’t long after the break that the tricky Robbie Spiers got his reward as he cut in from the right, evaded a number of Cambridge defenders and slotted the ball calmly in off the post. In the middle of the park TJ Greer was beginning to find more pockets of space and his influence on the game was growing. His midfield partner Isaac Wylie also began to drive his team forward in search of the winning goal which duly came with 15 minutes of the game remaining. Neat footwork in the middle of the park from Rhys Brown Kerr laid the ball to the ever impressive Greer who slotted a classy through ball to Dylan Duff, who made no mistake with the finish to put Cullybackey 2-1 up. The score remained the same until the final whistle although the Cullybackey men will have their keeper Josh Nicholl to thank as he made a smart stop at the feet of the on rushing Cambridge striker in the final minutes to ensure his team progressed through to the next round.
