DERRY CITY EARNED a record-breaking win, as they beat Blarney United 12-2 in the FAI Cup today.

Ally Roy (4), Aaron McEneff (2) , Ronan Hale (2), Shane McNamee (2), Cathal Farren and Kevin McHattie got the goals for Kenny Shiels’ side.

The Candystripes went 10-0 ahead before the Cork side grabbed two late consolations, but goals from McNamee and McHattie completed the rout.

Elsewhere, Dean O’Brien scored a stoppage-time goal that saw CIE Ranch beat Dublin Bus 1-0.

There was good news too for Maynooth University Town, who beat Leeds AFC 2-0.

Meanwhile, former Ireland international Noel Hunt scored a hat-trick, as Waterford beat Skerries Town 4-1.

Gavan Holohan was also on target for the Premier Division side, while Brian Snowe scored a consolation for his team.

There was no fairytale for Newmarket Celtic, who were beaten 2-1 by First Division outfit Cabinteely in Ennis. Joe Doyle and Luke Clucas were on target for the visitors.

In addition, Galway United beat Wexford 4-0 in Ferrycarrig Park.

A hat-trick by Eoin McCormack and a Conor Barry goal meant the game was effectively over by half-time.

In this evening’s late game, Sligo Rovers slipped to a home defeat to Longford Town as they were unable to claw back level after Jamie Hollywood struck what proved to be a 65th-minute winner.
