Institute remain hot on the heels of league leaders Linfield Rangers following today’s victory at Clooney Park West.
Whilst this certainly wasn’t a vintage performance from the Drumahoe boys they took their chances whilst at the other end they dug deep to record their third clean sheet of the season.
Stute opened the scoring just before the break when Shane Brennan’s corner found Ethan Canning who drove the ball towards the back post where Matty Lynch was on hand to poke the ball home from 6 yards.
Midway through the second half Alex Pomeroy turned in a cross from Brennan to double the lead and five minutes from time a well worked corner saw Brennan’s corner dummied by Pomeroy and John Mallett was on hand to drill the ball into the roof of the net from the edge of the box to complete the scoring.
Team: G Muldoon, C Holmes, E Canning, J McLaughlin, C Connolly, Emmett O’Hara, J Flemming, C Moorehead, S Brennan, J Mallett, C Hill. Subs: M Lynch, A Pomeroy, T McCorkell, R Adair, D Forbes.
