Leinster Junior Cup
Ayrfield United- 4
Brian Malone hit a hat trick as Ayrfield United flew into the next round of the Leinster Junior Cup on Sunday.
The front found the net three times in the first half to ensure an easy mornings work for the new LSL side against Kilmore United.
Malone put the hosts into the clear before the break and Mick Mooney added to the tally after the turn as Ayrfield progressed to the next round.
Malone was scoring as early as minute 2 as he fired home from the spot after a hand ball in the area.
Not too long later it was two for the hosts and two for Malone as the wideman pounced on a misjudged clearance to finish.
With just 25 minutes on the clock the game was all but settled as Malone jinked past two of their defenders and slid the ball past the keeper to make it three.
Ayrfield played somewhat within themselves after the break, but did manage a fourth as Mooney’s cross come shot found the back of the net.
