Conor celebrates as he makes it 2-0

Glens proved too strong for Petershill with two goals in each half. After a great run the down the right by Conor Lynass his cut back set up Joe Andrew to slot home from a few yards on 18 mins. In added time at the end of the half Peasy’s keeper blocked substitute Dale Moore’s shot and Lynass pounced to fire home from a tight angle. It was a Lynass cross from the right that set up the Glens third after it was only partially cleared and Moore lashed home the ball from 15 yards. On 75 minutes Joe Andrew bagged his brace to complete the scoring after working his way into the box and giving a defender the slip before slippimg the ball past the advancing keeper from 12 yards out.
