Glenavon FC U20’s (0) – (4) Linfield FC U20s
Glenavon U20s welcomed Linfield U20s to Mourneview Park on Tuesday evening. Both squads had plenty of senior experience within their starting line ups due to their matches being postponed this weekend.
The first half was played at a good intensity with both teams trying to score the opening goal. Glenavon 20s had good spells on the ball but were unable to trouble the Linfield goalkeeper. Linfield were finding good pockets of space during the half and got in behind the Glenavon defence on several occasions. As the half ended, Linfield scored the first goal of the game to make it 1-0 to the visitors at half time.
The second half started better for Glenavon as they were able to play and keep the ball more in the Linfield half. Unfortunately, Glenavon couldn’t turn any possession into clear chances and were left frustrated with their attacking play. On the 75th minute Linfield made it 2-0 from a square pass along the back line. The second goal put Linfield in control for the last 15 minutes of the game, as they added 2 more goals to finish the game 4-0 winners.
