Saintfield Utd

Sunk at the Seaside

Saintfield United 3rds 100% record finally came to an end when they met Ardglass II at their ground on Saturday. Ardglass turned out to be expectantly difficult opponents. Both teams have an equally high goal scoring record and so it was no surprise that match ended in a 4-3 victory to Ardglass. The hosts played a very fast direct style, which was reflected in the manner in which 3 of their 4 goals were scored. Ardglass first goal came in the first two minutes after a ball was played over the top for their fast striker to run onto. One thing about the Saints 3rdís this season is their attitude and fighting spirit and they took control of the game for the next 15 minutes and rewarded themselves with a well earned equaliser Johnny Orr played the ball from the goal line for Eddie Mulgrew at the edge of the 18 yard box, from where Eddie placed the ball in the bottom right hand corner of the opposition goal. Ardglass worked their way back in the game and took a renewed lead in the 35 minute, when they again played a ball over the top behind the Saints defence. Within 3 minutes though the Saints levelled the game once more. Michael Carson run on to a pass played by Matthew Haughey and finished in a cool manner.

The Saints were slow to start into the second half and Ardglass regained the lead in the 57th minute in a similar style as their previous goals. Only to lose the lead once more, when Matthew Haughey equalised from a free kick which went in off the crossbar from 30 yards out. In the 77th minute Ardglass won a corner from which they cleverly scored from a short taken corner. Despite their never say die spirit and relentless battling the Saints could not find a way to equalise once more and at the end had to concede their first defeat of the season. However, the spirit in the dressing room is such that everybody is determined to fight back next week.



Goal Scorers: Eddie Mulgrew (1), Michael Carson (1), Matthew Haughey (1)
