Moorlands survived a second-half scare to take their place in the quarter-finals of the Kevin Horner Memorial Cup this weekend.
The Uddingston side started brightly and it wasn’t long before they took control of the game.
Wide men Dean Robertson and Aaron McNeil were causing Carbrain problems and within the fifteen minute mark, McNeil won his team a penalty when he was adjudged to have been impeded in the box. Sean Monaghan converted with aplomb, giving his side a one goal advantage.
Minutes later Monaghan almost added a second when his header from Jonnie Walker’s cross flashed just wide.
The second goal was not long in arriving however, Paul Mockus getting on the end of a through ball before rounding goalkeeper Stuart Goodfellow to net.
When McNeil made it 3-0 before the break, the tie looked all but over.
Half Time : Carbrain BC 0-3 Moorlands Reds
Both teams made several personnel changes for a second half which almost provided a twist in the tale.
A delightful header from Michael Clarke made it 4-0 for the visitors but Carbrain replied soon afterwards.
Dylan Williamson then restored Moorlands’ advantage, netting from Calvin Cowie’s centre.
To their credit however, the home side hit back again and scored three times to set up an interesting closing period.
Although Carbrain right-winger Callum Groom passed up a good chance, there was to be no further scoring and it was Moorlands who progressed to meet Lenzie away in the last eight.
Full Time : Carbrain BC 3-5 Moorlands Reds
