First Division Knockout Cup: Lopes Tavares 1 May & Baker 6

May & Baker progressed into the quarter-finals of the First Division Knockout Cup with a comfortable 6-1 victory against Lopes Tavares.

After originally going a goal down, braces from Conor Okus and Alexander Owuadey, as well as solo efforts from Kiel Chandler and Besmir Hoxhaj sealed the win for the Bakers in their third round tie at the Terence McMillan Stadium.

The hosts got off the mark early but the score was soon level as Okus drilled a free-kick from range into the net to make it 1-1.

Chandler then gave his side the lead as he finished a through ball from Hoxhaj before a long ball over the top fell to the hosts goalkeeper, who could only clear straight to Hoxhaj, who chipped it over and into the net from 25 yards.

Owuadey then stretched their lead to 4-1 as he slotted home the ball after being tee’d up by Chandler who made a great run down the right flank.

They went into the half-time break in commanding control and it didn’t appear to change in the second-half.

Owuadey bagged his second of the night after being put through on goal by Hoxhaj.

The visitors were then awarded a penalty with Okus stepping up to seal a 6-1 win for his side.
