Dunston UTS 5 Morpeth Town 0 Ebac Northern League, Division One

A SLOW start cost the Highway Men on Saturday.

It was just about all over for Morpeth when they conceded three times in the opening 15 minutes. Ormston headed a cross wide of goalkeeper Mundy in the third minute and four minutes later, Burrell calmly side-footed the ball into the net after being sent clear.

Worse was to follow for the visitors when they conceded a free-kick outside the penalty area and Burrell beat the wall and Mundy.

Morpeth created a few chances in the second half; their best effort was when Taylor chipped onto the crossbar, but they could not prevent Kane and Swailes from making it 5-0.
