Pro Football Academy continued their impressive start to the season, making it three wins out of four games as star striker Connor Swan led his team in a dominant display against Kirkwood.
Pro Football Academy started the stronger of the two sides, as they piled the pressure on the Kirkwood defence. They took the lead in the first ten minutes as centre back Cian Murphy played a straight ball from the half way line which sliced open the Kirkwood defence, allowing Barry Lee Rowlands to break through on goal and put the ball past the Kirkwood keeper Niall Sharkey.
Kirkwood's defence never got a moment to rest throughout the first half as Pro Football Academy's attack was relentless, with another chance coming shortly after their first goal as Alexander McKay floated the ball from the left into the path of Swan, who tried to catch the keeper off his line with a chip from just outside the box but put too much on it as it went just over the bar.
Swan was the star man for Pro Football Academy, playing a big part in his team's second goal as he played the ball in from the left to Roman Martin's feet, leading him to putting the ball in the bottom right corner.
Two quick fire goals from Pro Football Academy extended their lead to four after 25 minutes, with McKay getting his first goal of the game while Martin put his tally up to two.
Another Pro Football Academy goal came shortly after, as McKay won the ball on the half way line, before lofting a perfectly waited ball to Swan who had the easy job of putting the ball past Sharkey.
Swan doubled his tally shortly after by latching onto a loose backpass from the Kirkwood midfield, before rounding the keeper and putting the ball into an empty net.
Pro Football Academy got their seventh just before half time, as Sharkey was forced to bring down Anton Kelly who broke through on goal, leading to a penalty which Kelly tucked away in the bottom left corner with ease.
