Castle Rangers 0 - 7 New Oak Boys

A local derby to wrap up this shield group and New Oak needed to win to make sure of qualification for the quarter final. The game started with both teams trying to play with a quick tempo. The counterattack was the main threat for the home side, and they almost made it count on fifteen minutes when they broke at pace but a last-ditch tackle from David O'Shea spared New Oak from going behind. New oak began to take control of the game from here and made it one nil on twenty minutes when a beautiful, floated cross from Dean Kelly was headed in by James McGrath at the back post. With castle still sitting in waiting for the counter New Oak broke down the left on thirty minutes and another beautiful cross this time from David Doyle was volleyed home again at the back post but this time it was Graham Delaney with the finish. The second started in the same way with New Oak dominating the ball and castle sitting in, the third goal came when a through ball was blocked with a Castle Rangers hand for a penalty. Dean Kelly stepped up and slotted it home nicely.

Five minutes later the Castle Rangers keeper delayed on a ball back to him only for Dean Kelly to slot home for he's second. With new oak playing with confidence now the fifth goal was a ball slipped down the right side of the box for Lee Gordon to then roll it across the six yard and David Doyle finish. With the game effectively over now and New Oak starting to enjoy playing and the pick of the goals came on 75 minutes with a passing move that started with Sean Geoghan in goal and worked down the right side of the field where Lee walker slipped Dean Kelly through, and he finished nicely. The seventh was similar with Dean Kelly, David Doyle , Lee Gordon and Graham Delaney linking up and again finished by Dean Kelly . This was a good workout for both teams and Castle Rangers played some good football especially in the first half when they were causing problems on the break.
