Belfast Harlequins’ chances of reaching a Kirk Cup semi spot are back on track, after they recorded a rare 4-2 win at Kilkeel.
The visitors romped into a 3-0 lead when Andrew Smythe slipped the ball in at the far post in the eighth minute. And six minutes later, Luke McClelland doubled Harlequins’ lead.
Kilkeel just couldn’t get a foothold on the game and in the 28th minute James Hutchinson cracked home a penalty corner, to give Harlequins a comfortable 3-0 lead going into the turn.
Kilkeel can never be counted out and seven minutes after the restart, William Annett reduced the deficit.
Any thoughts of a comeback were soon killed off when Hutchinson restored Harlequins’ three goal lead in the 58th minute.
With four minutes remaining, Johnny Aiken reduced the deficit for Kilkeel.
Mossley have booked a semi-final spot in the Kirk Cup, as they notched up their third win in a row defeating Raphoe 3-2 at Donegal.
But they had to come from behind after Matthew Lecky gave Raphoe the lead.
Two goals from David Glenny and one from Jordan Robinson had the visitors in a commanding lead and on their way to the semis.
Even when George Patterson pulled one back for Raphoe, it was just too much of a hill to climb for the homeside.
