Reds had to go into their biggest game of the season without several key players and never seriously threatened to cause an upset in this Conway Cup semi final.
They couldn’t match the passion and desire that the Carlisle side displayed in abundance and failed to score for the first time as they slumped to their heaviest defeat.
Both teams deserve credit for trying to play in a fierce, cold wind but it was Pirelli who adapted better to the conditions and had established an unassailable lead by half time.
It had been an even opening quarter of an hour but once Jordan Irving’s well taken goal broke the deadlock in the eighteenth minute, the outcome looked inevitable.
And two more goals just before the interval put Pirelli in the driving seat.
They were causing Reds all kinds of problems from throw-ins and corners and they doubled their lead from close range in the forty first minute with what could have been an own goal but was credited to former Workington player, James Earl.
It was three nil before the break when Kieron Blair finished off a decent move with Reds’ poor defending compounding the situation.
With the conditions in their favour in the second half, Workington failed to get going and they rarely troubled visiting ‘keeper, Stephen Townsley.
Pirelli, who had strong claims for a penalty turned down, a goal disallowed for offside and saw another effort rebound off the crossbar, scored the only goal of the second half with Jordan Atkinson wrapping up an emphatic victory with a well taken fourth.
They will now meet Workington Athletic in the final after they narrowly overcame Northbank in the other tie.
Team: Scott Paden-Gale, Aidan Howarth, Dan Whitehead, Reuben Butterworth, Tom Skinner, Taylor Hambling, Leon Dmytrowski, Cain Pears, Matty Foster (Josh Palmer, 61), Louis Webster, Carl Lightfoot. Substitutes – Logan Bosward, Evan Stephenson (not used).
