BSC Storm 5 - 0 Barrhill :: Scottish Cup Quarter Finals
After weeks of cancelations due to weather, and a midweek defeat to Morton, the Broomhill 2001s looked put that all behind them as they finally hosted Barrhill in the Scottish Cup Quarter Finals.
Despite the the fixture being delayed, BSC looked up to the task as they showed their dominance in the opening minutes of the match.
Within 15 minutes, Broomhill took the lead. Mitch Donohoe did well to find James Littlejohn, who drove the ball into the box. It proved to much for the Barrhill defenders, who knocked the ball into the back of their own net.
It didn’t take long for BCS to double their lead. Stepping up to take a corner, Donohoe found the head of Logan McCarthy, who headed home to make it 2-0.
Broomhill found their third just three minutes later, as Donohue played provider yet again. Finding Jack Muir down the lefthand side, the winger showed his pace, whipping the ball into the box to strike partner Daniel McGarrie who make the finish look easy.
On the stroke of halftime, Barrhill gifted Broomhill an opportunity to extend their lead even further. After conceding a cheap free kick just a few yards from the half way line, Geo Vezza stepped up and blasted the ball into the top of the net.
The second half started no different from the first as Broomhill found themselves with numerous chances to make it five. Despite the result seemingly set in stone, the Glasgow side looked to add onto their tally, continuing the impressive performance displayed in the first half.
As the match wore on, Broomhill eventually found the fifth and final goal of the game. Some neat play between McCarthy and Donohoe saw the ball elude the defender at the near post, as the ball found the back of the net. The match ended 5-0 as Broomhills emphatic win saw them book their place in the Scottish Cup Semi-Finals.
After the game, emotions were high as Lewis Beveridge and James Littlejohn explained that the boys were “absolutely buzzing” after the game.
Manager Mark Carnegie was also in a good mood, as he jokingly described to us how goalkeeper Thomas Tunstill had to be subbed off as he was “way too cold”.
