Arlington advanced to the next round of the LFA cup with a convincing 6-0 win over fellow Laois side Stradbally Town.

Arlington raced into a 4-0 lead in the first half playing some lovely football, with goals from Shaun Pierre Cretaro, Barry Kenny, David Thorpe and a Jason Halpin penalty. The tempo dropped in the second half in the sweltering heat and Stradbally created a few chances, but Arlington finished strongly and further goals from Cretaro and man of the match Halpin rounded out the game.
