Three second half goals gave Glenmuir United the full three points in their midweek game with Bay United on the Rock Road pitch.
The home side fought bravely throughout this game but they were dismantled by a merciless second half performance as a clinical Glenmuir found their scoring touch.
The opener arrived within four minutes of the restart. Eddie Adeubovela activated the move with a low cross from the left wing, Jimmy Farrelly racing in from deep, fired a low drive which Bay United ‘keeper Oisin Dorman did well to push away but Farrelly reacted the quickest and fired in the rebound. Adeubovela was involved in the second goal from start to finish when he won the ball in his own half. He drove at the Bay United defence before firing a low drive into the bottom corner of Oisin Dorman’s net.
The third goal arrived in the last minute after another Bay United attack broke down and Glenmuir broke quickly on the counter attack.
Benas Lukosevicius jinked goalwards before sliding the ball out to Jim Umeri who hammered past the stranded Oisin Dorman.
It was tough justice on the young Bay United side who had an equal share of possession and chances in the game.
It was the home side that had the first effort on goal in the first-half when Kelly Okobi’s fierce low drive was blocked superbly by defender Benas Lukosevicius and Dipo Stephens had a glorious opportunity late in the half but he delayed too long in shooting and the chance was gone.
The same player was unlucky early in the second half when he fired inches wide of the Glenmuir goal.
In between Glenmuir always looked dangerous when they attacked and Oisin Dorman produced a great save with his feet in the 5th minute to deny Jimmy Farrelly.
Farrelly did beat Dorman in the 16th minute but Bay United defender Liam McCarthy raced back to clear the ball off the line.
