Pembroke played a fast passing game against Instonians and came out worthy 3-0 winners.
As in previous games between the two sides Pembroke took the game to Instonians and it was on five minutes that a midfield mistake by Instonians led to Pembroke winning possession with the ball being switched quickly before Alan Sothern slid the ball past goalkeeper Nigel Skillen.
Instonians came back quickly at Pembroke and a brilliant pass from John Watson saw Chris Kirk dive full length in the circle only for the ball to flash pass the Pembroke goal. The game moved from end to end with Pembroke looking more dangerous on the attack.
On 29 minutes a clumsy tackle in the Instonians circle led to a penalty corner and from the resultant corner Alan Giles scored number 2 for Pembroke although it did seem that an Instonian defender had been obstructed.
So halftime came with Pembroke 2–0 in front. Even at this stage Instonians might have hoped that they would get something from the game but within five minutes of the restart a Justin Sherriff break saw him square the ball to Sothern who had the simple task of scoring Pembroke’s third goal from three yards out.
Pembroke continued to attack and Nigel Skillen made a further two fine saves. At the other end the Instonians attack failed to penetrate a resolute Pembroke defence and so they went home worthy 3–0 winners.
The Man of the Match award went to Alan Sothern of Pembroke.
