Lincoln complete domestic double

Lincoln secured the Rock Cup yesterday after beating Glacis United 2-0 just three days after clinching the league title.

Kike put the Imps ahead after only four minutes and goalkeeper Lolo Soler made a save shortly after to keep Lincoln 1-0. up. Glacis should have equalised in the 18th minute when Chibuike Nwosu found himself running on goal but his shot was saved by Soler.

Lincoln would punish Glacis just seconds later when Kike’s cross found Fernando Carralero to tap the ball into the net to make it 2-0. Nwosu would continue to cause Lincoln problems with his pace and power, resulting in a penalty for Glacis when Jack Sergeant tripped up the Nigerian.

The former Imps midfielder Craig Galliano stepped up and his low shot was saved by the Spanish goalkeeper. Imps would go into the break leading 2-0.

Half-time substiutie Alessandro Borghi had a chance to pull a goal back for Glacis on the hour mark but he dragged his shot wide from inside the box. Both teams made a number of changes but Imps held on to secure their second trophy in the space of three days.
