Saintfield Utd

“The Orr to success” by Curtis McClements

Chris Orr was back in the goals on Saturday as he smashed a hat trick to give Saintfield all 3 points against Dundrum 2nds. Saintfield travelled to Dundrum looking to make it 3 wins in a row, and despite the treacherous conditions they showed how lethal they can be as they took charge of this game in a blistering 5 minute period.

The match started at an even pace as both sides adjusted to the pouring rain and howling wind, but once the Saints adjusted they allowed their front line to take control and make Dundrum their play ground! It started in the 8th minute as Matthew Haughey caressed a perfect first time pass between the Dundrum defence for Andy Moore, with the form Moore has been showing recently he only had one thing on his mind as he lifted his head, drew back his left wand and hammered the ball into the net, giving the keeper no chance.

1-0 and as Dundrum attempted to regroup to make a come back the Saints struck again 1 minute later. It was that man, dawning a lovely pair of new boots which clearly had goals in them. Chris Orr had been abused for some misses last week, but this week he wasn’t going to make the same mistake and he got his first in the 9th minute. Midfield mystro Peter Duff was the provider as he slipped a clever early pass between the Dundrum centre backs for Chris to latch onto, he took one touch and then slotted a perfectly positioned finishing into the corner of the net. Chris Orr was just getting started and 4 minutes later he added his second and the Saints third.

Orr was the beneficiary of Saints very own midfield Pirlo for his second as Peter Kelly played a lovely pass for Chris to pick up and do the rest. The rest was anything but easy as Chris held of two defenders, beat another before slotting the ball past the keeper, giving him no chance. Orr was on fire and it was a sight to behold, even on such a horrible day.

The Saints remained in control until half time, creating a few more chances for Chris Orr, Andy Moore and Johnny Orr but they couldn’t convert anymore. At the other end Matthew Small was again in fine form to deny Dundrum on a few occasions to ensure the Saints went in 3-0 up at the break.

The second half started much in the same vain as the first as both teams again adjusted to the increasing wind and rain, however once again it was the Saints that made that adjustment quicker and in the 57th minute it was 4-0. Once again it was Chris Orr as he showed just how much drive and desire he had to ensure he got that hat trick. The ball was cleared by the Dundrum defence to Josh Barr, he popped a pass over the advancing midfielders into Chris’s path and then he did the rest. He get’s called the juggernaut and this goal showed just why that is. He hit a shot that was blocked, but he then won the ball back only to be tackled by the next Dundrum defender, but Chris won that battle and as the ball span towards the net Chris was quick enough, and clever enough to nic the ball round the keeper before tapping it home from 3 yards out. Hat trick completed, but Chris was going to stop there, although the post was there to deny him adding his 4th from at least 30 yards out! Saints did add a 5th, albeit it after Peter ‘Pirlo’ Kelly turned into Djemba Djemba inside his own box kicking his clearance off the Dundrum attacker who was all of 2 yards in front of him, which then sent the ball spinning past Smally into the Saints net giving him no chance.

Saints regrouped and added that final goal and what a goal it was. Peter Duff curled in a corner that was half cleared to the edge of the area, waiting on the ball dropping was Matthew Haughey, he took one touch to set himself then from all of 25 yards he rifled a right footed shot over the keeper and into the net. On a wet, windy miserable day it was a goal that made it all worth while and a goal that was special for Haughey in only his second match back after a long lay off through injury.

Another 3 points back to Saintfield and another star performance from super striker Chris Orr.



Goal Scorers: Chris Orr (3), Andrew Moore (1), Matthew Haughey (1)
