Club Doctor Stephen Best tonight became a granddad for the first time when his daughter Amy gave birth to baby Joseph. Proud father Ed Kalman is a tight head prop with Glasgow Warriors who take on Ulster at the weekend. Clearly the youngster is already well on his way to following in his dad’s footsteps as he weighed in at an impressive 9 lbs 11 oz!
22: 1-0: Marc Brown headed in from Gary Hamilton’s free kick.
26: 2-0: Denver Taggart tapped in Matthew Rooney’s low cross.
38: Taggart scored his second of the night with a right foot shot from Jack Milligan’s cross from the right.
43: 3-1 David Ross scored direct with a free kick from the left edge of the area that beat Danny Devine, the Glenavon keeper, at the foot of his near post.
45: 4-1 Robbie McDaid just beat the keeper on the edge of his box to a through ball from Gary Hamilton and followed up to roll it into the empty net.
Glenavon spurned plenty of chances to extend the lead and Conor Hagan was denied by the Richhill keeper who made some decent saves. Gary Lavery made it 5-1 five minutes from time when Hagan’s worst shot of the night was lost by the keeper and the young substitute was left with a tap in.
Andrew Mitchell finally got his goal when Hagan was picked out by captain Mark Turkington and, as Hagan tried to take it round the keeper, somehow the ball broke for the big striker and he smashed it into the roof of the net.
Glenavon: Devine, Turkington (c), Marshall, Brown, Milligan, Rooney, Hamilton, Hagan, Taggart, Mitchell, McDaid. Subs: Ballard for Hamilton (HT), Lavery for McDaid (66), Cochrane for Brown (71)
