Sligo Rovers under-19s coasted to a big 6-0 win against Letterkenny Rovers at The Showgrounds this weekend.

The result was never really in doubt for Ciaran Kelly’s team who are now three unbeaten.

Three changes were made to the team as Paul Doyle, Gary Armstrong and Mark Hannon came in for Jason Hunt, Mikey Place and Callum Frempong.

Armstrong, Borotto and Flanagan all had decent chances to score inside the first 20 minutes of the game but none could convert their chances.

Centre forward Liam Flatley got the scoring started on 22 minutes however. The keeper was able to save his first attempt after running onto Doyle’s pass but his second attempt went into the empty net.

Doyle should have got the second three minutes later as Flatley almost turned provider but then Doyle did get an assist on 31. His corner came to full-back Borotto who spun well and finished low.

Flatley went closest to adding to it before half-time but it stayed 2-0.

It wasn’t until three-quarters way into the game that the Bit o’Red finally made one for the many chances count. Borotto trickled the ball into the left channel where Flatley took over and finished well past the keeper.

Sub Carney got his first of the afternoon in similar fashion. This time Ross Taheny picked out the pass as Carney peeled off his man and then opened up to shoot into the corner of the net.

One minute later Rovers attacked again with Brian Morley running laterally across the face of the box before unleashing his shot low into the back of the net.

The final goal was scored on 85 minutes. Flatley played the ball over from the right of the box and it came via Hannon to Carney who was waiting at the goal-line to tap in his second.

Sligo Rovers: Burke, O'Donoghue (Kennoy 70), Taheny(c) (Doherty 70), McCallion, Borotto, Flanagan, Hannon, Morley (Anderson 79), Armstrong (Hunt 70), Doyle (Carney 70), Flatley.
