Under 21 Final: Pembroke 5 Glenanne 0

Pembroke claimed the Avoca Cup for the first time since 2002 with a comfortable 5-0 win. On that day, Glenanne were also the victims and, with Tim Lewis and Alan Sothern in top form, they were no match for the 'Broke after a competitive start.

Sothern opened the scoring 20 minutes in, rounding two short-corner runners to slip the ball home from seven yards. Shane O'Donoghue showed some nice touches down the right wing and Glenanne went close when Richie Shaw almost managed to snap up a rebound but David Harte reacted quickest.

But the second half proved more one-sided. Sothern fired in a reverse, Stu Loughrey deflected home Scott Furlong's pinpoint corss before Lewis was set up by Sothern for the fourth of the day. Sam Spence, also assisted by Sothern, made it 5-0 to complete the scoring.

"...they were no match for the 'Broke after a competitive start."

It was more the entire first half than just a competitive start.
Pembroke were lucky to go in at half time winning 1-0.
