Town progress in WKD Core Intermediate cup

Institute 1

Banbridge Town 2

(after extra time)

BANBRIDGE Town made it through to the next round of the WKD Core Intermediate Cup after a deserved victory at the Riverside Stadium.

The game against Institute eventually took place on its sixth attempt after the poor weather had forced its postponement.

The lads played extremely well to earn a 2-1 victory after extra time. Young Gareth Buchanan in goal had another outstanding game, saving yet another penalty, and numerous close range saves.

After going a goal down Stephen McArdle scored the equaliser and followed by a Damien McParland header getting the winner in the second period of extra time.

McParland’s goal has earned the Town a home tie in the third round of WKD Core Intermediate Cup against Limavady United at Crystal Park next Saturday, February 5 with a 1.30pm kick off.
