By Keith Bailie

Championship club PSNI caused an upset at Taylor's Avenue, hammering Carrick Rangers 4-1 in the County Antrim Shield.

Former Glentoran forward Lukasz Adamczyk gave the Police the lead from the penalty spot in the 20th minute.

Carrick were back on level terms a minute before half-time when former Ards defender Scott McCrory deflected the ball into his own net. PSNI retook the lead 10 minutes after the break when former Bangor man Paul McDowell found the net.

Jonny Courtney made it 3-1 a minute later, before Stuart Hutchinson added a fourth in the 66th minute.

The only other non-Premiership side to reach the last eight were Amateur League outfit Albert Foundry, who beat Premier Intermediate League club Newington 1-0 at Seaview.

Elsewhere, Premiership club Ards beat Knockbreda 3-1 thanks to a Carl McComb brace in the second half.

Ards took the lead when Guillaume Keke's goalbound effort cannoned off defender Tommy Wray and looped into the net.

In the 14th minute, midfielder David Johnston drew Knockbreda level but Ards retook the lead in the 53rd minute through McComb who ended the game as a contest with his second and Ards' third in the 85th minute.
