Munnis and Munnis record hat-tricks at Killowen

Killowen entertained a strong Ballymoney United Reserves at Rugby Avenue on Saturday morning and lost 8-1 to the youthful visitors.

Scott Munnis and Callum Munnis both recorded hat-tricks in the game, Scott opening the scoring in the third minute. He went on to complete his first half-trick with further goals on 25 and 38 minutes taking the visitors into a comfortable 3-0 lead at the break.

Indeed it was a good day for Munnis and Munnis as Callumn also notched a hat-trick in the second half coming off the bench.

Brian McCarthy added a fourth just after the restart and Killowen threw themselves a lifeline on the hour when Phil Stevenson made it 4-1.

However, with Killowen chasing the game, gaps opened up at the back a just over a minute had gone from Stevenson’s goal when Callum Munnis made it 5-1 in the 61st minute. Another followed seven minutes later and his hat-trick was complete in the 73rd minute.

Neal Thompson rounded off the day’s scoring with a late goal for Ballymoney on 82 minutes.

Causeway Chronicle photographer Aaron McCullough was on hand to capture some of the action.
