Milton Blue got their Scottish Cup campaign off to a flying start at Ballerup as they eased past EKYC to a 6-0 victory in what was a particularly one-sided match.
Milton were dominant from the start as they created their first chance within the first five minutes as Paul O’Hara crossed the ball in from the left which caused chaos in the EKYC defence as it fell to Blue's forward Andrew Cruse whose effort on goal was blocked.
Milton’s pressure continued throughout the first ten minutes, as EKYC struggled to get out of their own half for much of it. This can be credited to Milton centre back and captain Josh Moore, who fulfilled his role and controlled the defence well throughout the game.
Shortly after, Milton deservedly took the lead as Blues winger Liam Bone bombed down the right wing and played a pinpoint cross to David Scott who converted from close range.
Milton did not take long to extend their lead, as they pounced on EKYC straight from kick off, which lead to Cruse breaking through on goal and slotting past EKYC keeper Francis Byrne.
After 20 minutes Milton looked comfortably in the driving seat, as they continued to put the EKYC defence under pressure. O’Hara posed a constant threat to the EKYC defence, as his effort on goal was cleared off the line by EK defender Scott Nugent. This however did not deter O’Hara as he played an important part in Milton’s third goal, as he put in a cross from an initially cleared corner, which fell to Bone who had an easy tap in.
