Double: Aaron McQuillan’s two goals set Neyland on their way to victory

NEYLAND are through to the Semi Finals of the Senior Cup as they thrashed Haverfordwest Cricket Club by seven goals to one on Saturday afternoon.

The Nomads dominated their Division Two opponents for large periods of the game but had to come from behind as the Cricket Club took the lead against the run of play.

Jamie Cato put the visitors ahead on thirteen minutes, raising hopes of a shock result.

However, two goals in a minute turned the game on its head and Neyland didn’t look back.

They scored a further four goals in the second half and will now face Narberth in the Semi-final which takes place in Monkton next weekend (April 25).

Neyland started well as Aaron McQuillan shot wide before a shot from Nathan Warlow bounced awkwardly for the Hwest keeper and he had to tip the ball over the bar.

Haverfordwest Cricket Club then stunned their opponents as they took the lead. Liam Sheehan broke into the box and left the ball for Jamie Cato whose shot went in off the post.

They almost had a second five minutes later as a corner from Matthew Deans bounced back off the bar.

With half an hour gone Neyland equalised as Gary Power played the ball through for Henry Durrant who rolled the ball into the net.

From the restart Neyland pressed and forced Haverfordwest back and Wayne Parry went in for a challenge with the keeper which saw the ball bounce into the path of Aaron McQuillan who knocked the ball into the empty net.

Shortly before half time Wayne Parry played the ball through for Aaron McQuillan and he slotted the ball into the net to make it 3-1.

Six minutes into the second half Neyland scored a fourth when Sean Hannon bundled the ball home from a corner.

Haverfordwest threatened briefly soon after but Liam Sheehan’s lob went wide of the post.

With twenty two minutes of the game to go the Nomads added a fifth in spectacular fashion when Michael Chandler’s shot from 25 yards out flew into the top corner.

The Nomads continued to dominate and hit a sixth with four minutes to go when Wayne Parry lobbed the ball over the Haverfordwest keeper into the net.
