Dundton 1-4 Morpeth Town
Morpeth Town cruised to a 4-1 victory at Dunston on Saturday with a much improved performance, maintaining their aim of a top three position.
The scoring was opened after 10 minutes with midfielder Shaun Bell driving home from five yards, following a well worked corner involving Luke Carr and Ben Sayer.
Luke Carr then added a second in the 15th minute when following a free kick on the right taken by Graydon, he drove home left footed from the edge of the box.
The goal of the game came in the 30th minute, however, when ‘Man of the Match’ Ben Sayer following a great run on the right curled a great run on the right and link up with Carr and Graydon, he curled a 20 yard effort into the top corner of the net giving Connell in the home goal no chance.
After the interval the match continued in the same fashion with former Dunston player Lee McAndrew prominent down the left.
Following much pressure, however, it was Dunston who were to score next with Halliday driving home from the edge of the box giving the outstanding Karl Dryden no chance.
Dunston pushed on after this but Dryden handling was immaculate as he came for every ball in the box taking everything cleanly.
It was Town who were to score their fourth goal next putting the game beyond Dunston when McAndrew, receiving the ball wide, cut in from the left before drilling a superb low drive into the left hand corner of Connell’s net.
The remainder of the match, with Dan Taggart on for Dale Pearson, saw Town play some great possession football to see the match out with the objective of keeping clear of injuries and bookings for the final achieved.
