Cabinteely FC were on fire on Monday evening as they hammered Athlone Town 4-0 under the beaming sunshine at Stradbrook.
Cabo had a 2-0 lead at hall time thanks to goals from former Cabo schoolboys Kevin Knight and Luke Clucas.
The deadlock broke at the half an hour mark as a move from the attacking trio of Kieran Marty Waters, Keith Dalton and Kevin Knight combined. Clucas found the feet of Knight who slotted home Cabo’s first of the game.
Moments later, they doubled their lead. Waters got on the end of a long, hopeful punt up the field. Teeing up Clucas who scored his first of the game.
Starting off the second half how they ended it in the 55th minute Clucas once again found himself in the right place to steer home his second and Cabo’s third of the game.
After the third goal went in Athlone rallied as midfielders Jake O’Connor and Aaron Williams both went close for Terry Butler’s side.
It was Waters who put the icing on the cake for Cabinteely in the 72ndminute as Stephen McGuinness’ long punt upfield found the feet of Waters. He expertly dinked the ball over the head of Darcy Lawless
