United’s second game of their Erasmus+ Budapest tour was against BSC 1924 – Budaors on Wednesday evening – and it was a game where the young Blues had to work hard to get on top.
It all seemed to be going well when Ryan Swailes opened the scoring early in the encounter, and a two-goal cushion was established when Liam Lightfoot added to the tally from a set piece.
Budaors rallied quickly though and they were right back in it just six minutes after United had doubled their advantage with a well-worked finish.
Parity was restored on 35 minutes, with the Hungarian outfit looking dangerous on the attack, but the Cumbrians edged back in front just before the break with a fine strike from Roan Steele.
It was nip and tuck for a 10-minute spell at the start of the second half, but Carlisle started to dominate possession and they deservedly bagged again when Lewis Rooks found himself in the right place at the right time.
The blue shirts looked confident and Kyle Soper took the game out of sight when he used his strength to make room inside the area.
Two goals in the final 20 minutes from Ryan Swailes earned him his first hat-trick for the club and helped his team to claim a comfortable 7-2 victory into the bargain.
Goals: Swailes (12, 67, 80), Lightfoot (22), Steele (38), Rooks (56), Soper (65).
