MORECAMBE went down 4-0 to Accrington Stanley in the first round of the Lancashire Senior Cup.
Two goals in each half saw Stanley beat a young Morecambe side.
First half strikes from Andy Mangan and Piero Mingoia put Stanley 2-0 up at the break, before goals from Connor Hall and Offrande Zanzala put the Reds out of sight.
Stanley took the lead in the 28th minute when Danny Williams spread a cross-field ball to Mingoia on the right, who crossed to an unmarked Mangan and the striker volleyed back across goal to give the Reds the lead.
Stanley continued to grow into the game and they extended their lead shortly after as Mingoia latched on to a Hall through ball, before cutting inside to blast a left footed shot into the bottom corner.
The second half burst into life with the introduction of Zanzala who, moments after coming on, was brought down in the box and Hall stepped up to dispatch the penalty into the bottom left corner.
In the 71st minute Zanzala got himself on the score sheet with a well worked goal after dribbling into the box and striking a left foot shot past the goalkeeper.
