Cooksstown RBL Swifts 0 Heights 5

Che Bradley 27′, Ryan Kealey 58′, 85′, Eoin Crawford 60′, Ryan Canning 72′ for Heights

The Heights were on the road tonight for a midweek fixture to play Cookstown R.B.L. 

The game started well for the Heights and could have taken the lead in the first minute with Jordie Pollock heading over the bar after a good cross from Jason Lee moorecroft.

The break through came in the 27th minute when Che Bradley anticipated the R.B.L. keepers’ thoughts and volleyed the ball into an empty net from 30 yards.  The Heights were forced into making a change with Jordie Pollock going off injured and being replaced with Luke Hanson making his debut for the first team.

The Heights were creating chances but couldn’t find the second goal.  Cookstown R.B.L. had a couple of opportunities from freekicks, after but were off target.And the half finished  with the Heights one up.

The second half saw  Craig pollock making way for Ryan Keealy and  made an instant impact on the game with his physical presence. He got his reward with a goal in the 58th minute, which gave the Heights a two goal cushion and  were now looking to increase their .  lead, and they did in the 60th minute with a stunning freekick from Eoin Crawford.

The lead increased to four when Ryan canning beat the R.B.L keeper from 25 yards with a sweet strike. With the game in the dying stages, Ryan Keealy tapped in for his second of the night.
