RAMPANT LINFIELD TROUNCE GLENAVON AT WINDSOR

Linfield hit eight goals past Glenavon in a deadly demonstration of their fire power at Windsor Park.

The Blues needed just six minutes to open the scoring when Stephen Fallon burst into the box to fire into the top corner past Johnny Tuffey.

Kirk Millar made it 2-0 on 16 minutes with a penalty delivered into the bottom left corner after Fallon had been brought down by Matthew Snoddy inside the area.

Then, moments after that, Joel Cooper added a third with a superb finish after cutting inside to send a right foot shot past Tuffey.

Glenavon's afternoon got even worse a few minutes after that when they were reduced to ten men after Robert Garrett was shown a straight red card by referee Ian McNabb for dissent.

Linfield's fourth arrived before the half-hour mark courtesy of Shayne Lavery's glancing header from Millar's corner before, on 34 minutes, Matthew Clarke knocked home a fifth from close range after Cooper had cut the ball back.

The beleagured visitors did claw back a consolation just before the break from the spot when Sammy Clingan stroked the ball home following Ethan Boyle's foul on Snoddy.

Not content with an already substantial lead, Jordan Stewart made it 6-1 with the third penalty of the game, awarded for handball.

The scoring continued on 78 minutes with Cooper's second of the afternoon, a left-foot shot past Tuffey after he'd cut in from the right, before Jimmy Callacher rounded things off from close range in stoppage time.
