Glenavon’s youngsters did the business on Tuesday night as they saw off Moneyslane in the Mid-Ulster Cup.
Gary Hamilton gave call-ups to Owen Taylor, Conor Sullivan and Joshua Quinn, while Lee Rea scored and Ben McMorris was named man of the match.
All of Glenavon’s goals came in the first half. First Daniel Larmour headed home from a corner on 16 minutes.
Two minutes later the score was doubled by Jordan Jenkins from the penalty spot, as he scored low to Dylan Stewart’s right and sending the goalkeeper the wrong way.
Then on 22 minutes it was 3-0 when Jack O’Mahony scored a tidy goal, cutting in from the left and finishing low past the ‘keeper.
Rea added a fourth on the half hour mark when he got onto a ball into the box after Glenavon regained possession on the right hand side.
Goal number five came from the penalty spot, this time Conor McCloskey stepped up and again Stewart was beaten to his right hand side.
Jenkins brought up the half dozen on the stroke of half time with a well-struck free kick, taken from the edge of the box.
Glenavon nearly had a seventh when a McCloskey cross was nearly turned in by a Moneyslane defender just after the start of the second half.
Slane did score on 82 minutes when Matthew Rein capitalised on a mistake by Jonathan Tuffey, who had had a quiet night otherwise.
