Lincoln Red Imps maintained their fine start to the Premier Division season with a 4-0 win over Lynx.
The first half was a very even encounter with both teams playing well but unable to create chances. Raul Navas pulled off an unbelievable save early on keeping out a looping header from Javier Vargas. Lincoln broke the deadlock, a one-two between Lee Casciaro and Liam Walker saw Casciaro run through on goal and slot his shot past Christian Fraiz.
After going ahead Lincoln started to dominate the game but were unable to create any chances against a very stubborn Lynx defence. Just before half-time Lincoln were called into a substitution as Ryan Casciaro fell to the floor signalling to manager Raul Procopio that he was having trouble with his groin, Bernardo Lopes replaced him.
The second half started with Lincoln on the attack and doubled their lead fourteen minutes in, Liam Walker’s long range strike flew past a helpless Fraiz. Three minutes later Lincoln made it 3-0, maestro Liam Walker skipped past Karim Pinero on the wing and whipped in a cross which found Kyle Casciaro at the back post, the winger who was standing in for the injured Joseph Chipolina at full-back, slotted his shot away.
Shortly after Lincoln brought on striker Guido Abayian, a player who has impressed this season. Abayian got stuck in straight away, his shot was saved by Fraiz, the rebound fell to George Cabrera who shot wide. With only a few minutes remaining Abayian was rewarded with a goal, his shot was deflected past Fraiz.
Referee Jason Barcelo blew for full-time and Lincoln ran out comfortable winners. This win sees Lincoln move top of the league on goal difference while Lynx remain seventh. Special mention goes out to Lynx youngster Tyronne Avellano who made his Premier Division debut today at the age of fifteen.
