Tiffs 3’s made the trip to Old Meadonians 6’s to play in the second round of the LOBO cup.
The Tiffs 3’s got off to a good start, and were in control. A couple of good chances were created for Adrian and Phil, but the goalkeeper denied them. The Tiffs 3’s were punished for these misses on the 35 minute mark, after a great ball over the top was taken down and finished well by the Meads striker – 0-1.
The second half started similarly, with Tiffs 3’s in the ascendancy. However they were again hit with a sucker punch, a straight free kick launched over the top was well taken by the Meads forward – 0-2.
Meads gained in confidence and were able to extend their lead after a great finish left Tom with no chance – 0-3. Shortly after another went in, 0-4 and the Tiffs 3’s were heading out of the cup.
A consolation goal in the final minutes, after Phil Scullion cut inside from the Right Wing and hit an excellent left footed strike into the top corner. 1-4 and that was the end of the scoring.
With Tiffs 3’s now out of both cups, they have only the league to concentrate on.
