Banbridge Town Under-17 Bs beat Enniskillen Athletic 6-3 in the NIBFA Cup.

The game got off to a thunderous start as Banbridge scored after only three minutes.

Rhys Jones whipped in an inviting corner which was met by the head of Sam McCallister to plant the ball in the back of the net.

Enniskillen equalised with a breakaway goal before taking the lead through a header after 13 minutes.

Banbridge made it 2-2 when Ryan Sloan lobbed the Enniskillen keeper with a perfectly measured free kick from inside his own half.

With 12 minutes gone in the second half, Rhys Jones put Banbridge ahead. Town were rampant and netted a fourth goal six minutes later when Captain Jake Laffin curled a free kick into the top corner.

Banbridge could smell blood and put pressure on a crumbling Enniskillen side, bagging a fifth goal through Sam McCallister rolling his man for his second of the game.

Enniskillen converted a penalty with 10 minutes left to play to claw one back.

Banbridge didn’t lessen their efforts, and got a sixth goal right at the death when Sam McCallister looked to play a short corner before faking and whipping in a corner onto the head of Jake Laffin who directed it goalwards.

This week’s man of the match of the match was captain Jake Laffin for a spectacular display of leadership and drive while producing a technically faultless performance.

Everyone would like to extend their wishes to Liam Farrell for a speedy recovery.
