Greg Moorhouse put Glenavon in front in the 22nd minute when he headed in at the back post from a superb cross by Guy Bates. Andy McGrory doubled the lead three minutes later when he scored from the penalty spot after Swifts keeper Stuart Addis upended Bates in the 6 yard box as the striker dribbled his way towards the goal.

Bates got on the scoresheet himself in the 31st minute with a superb left foot finish into the top corner from the right corner of the Swifts box after an exquisite cross by McGrory with the outside of the right boot.

Terry Fitzpatrick rattled the Glenavon crossbar in the 36th minute with a shot from a neat cutback by Ronan Young but seconds later Bates was denied a second goal by a goal line clearance by young centre back Dale Robinson.

McGrory grabbed his second goal of the night, stabbing in from close range in the 81st minute after Declan O’Brien headed back Kyle Neill’s corner from beyond the far post.

O’Brien made it 5-0 four minutes from time when he ran onto a great through ball from Bates and outpaced Seanan Clucas before rounding Addis and sliding the ball into the net. He went close again minutes later when his header from McGrory’s cross was just off target.
