Saintfield Utd

By Adam Kelly

Saintfield United travelled to clarendon to face Woodvale keen to maintain a 7 game unbeaten run and to avenge a 4-2 defeat from October at pigeon hill. In the reverse fixture, Woodvale’s incisive counter attacks and physical approach proved the difference but Saintfield were keen to show they had improved since. The game started well with Saintfield creating opportunities that threatened the woodvale defence but their keeper was only really forced into routine saves. The same was true at the other end with Harper forced into a couple of stops from half chances created as the home side looked to counter. Both sides to their credit tried to play football but in awful conditions for football on a heavy pitch the game became more of a slog. As the half progressed Saintfield created a couple of good chances but rushed shots and stops from the Woodvale keeper kept the score to nil. One of the most obvious penalties of the season was denied by the ref when Ross was felled on a burst into the box.

The second half was much the same as the first although Saintfield’s superior fitness did see them boss the game more and they were posing more of a threat without creating anything clear. Woodvale’s best threat was now from long throws and set pieces as they tried to enforce a physical approach. As the half progressed some neat interplay around the Woodvale box and a half clearance saw an on target Justy Rea strike from the edge of the box take a nick off a defender leaving the woodvale keeper flat footed. Woodvale threw numbers forward and pumped the ball into the box for the final 10 mins with Saintfield looking to now hit on the break.

Credit to the young Saintfield side who matched their opponents physicality and deserved the win. That is now five away wins from five in the league including three 1-0 wins against teams in the top 6. Next week sees another massive challenge when Tullycarnet visit pigeon hill.



Goal Scorer: Justin Rea (1)
