INVERNESS CALEY THISTLE 3-0 PETERHEAD

 

Peterhead’s hopes of a quarter final appearance in the IRN-BRU Cup were ended by Inverness Caley Thistle, who won comfortably in the Highlands.

The Blue Toon’s game-plan to frustrate and keep their opponents quiet was ripped up after just 90 seconds.

Liam Polworth smashed a right-footed shot from outside the penalty area into the bottom corner of the net via a deflection.

Peterhead tried to come up with a reply, Rory McAllister going close with an overhead kick against his former club and Jamie Stevenson stinging the palms of Owain Fon Williams.

The visitors were still very much alive in the tie until they conceded again six minutes into the second half.

Polworth went from scorer to provider as he laid on Riccardo Calder, who slipped the ball past Greg Fleming from 10 yards.

There was no way back for Jim McInally’s 2015/16 finalists, who shipped a third goal in stoppage time. Youngster Daniel McKay sent a header beyond Fleming to score on his debut.
