De Courcey Albion made an exit from the AoH Cup in the 2nd roud this year after a dissapointing performance. Albion started the brighter of the 2 teams and had 2 chances in the opening 10 minutes to open the scoring. But on 25 minutes from a corner Macroom breached Albions defence with a free header into the back of the net. Things still looked good for albion up to the break as they went in just a goal down. From the start of the 2nd half there was only 1 team in the game. As Macroom pressed & pressed they were dominating in midfield and their back 4 stayed solid. On 50 minutes they doubled the lead. 5 minutes later they went 3-0 up after a mix up in the Albion box. On 70 minutes Macroom received a free kick outside the area from which they cooly converted once again from a header. Albion finished the game under pressure and were glad to hear the final whistle. Final score 4-0 to Macroom as they progress into the 3rd round.
