Lurgan Town Mid-Ulster U12’s took on Armagh City Eagles in the League at Armagh City’s ground on Saturday 25th March 2017. Lurgan made a really bright start and took an early lead with a very good run by Jake McMurray on the right hand side which found Joey McDonald in the centre and he took his time to slot the ball nicely into the corner.
Jack Brannigan made a fantastic save to keep Lurgan in the lead when he pushed a great shot onto the bar. Lurgan were dominating and scored a second when Daniel Graham hit a good shot which the keeper pushed onto the post and Luke Carson pounced to stab the ball home. Luke Carson extended the lead when he pounced on another loose ball in the area.
In the second half, Joey McDonald scored his second goal when he lofted a beautiful shot beyond the keeper into the far corner. Luke Carson scored a hat-trick with another ruthless striker finish after Daniel Graham hit a really good long shot which cannoned off the post. Brilliant alertness and anticipation yet again by Luke Carson and a well deserved hat-trick. Harry Smith scored the last from a rebound to make it a resounding win.
Squad: Jack Brannigan, Toby Haire, Ben Hendron, James Wright, Daniel Graham, Joey McDonald, Jake McMurray, Jack O’Brien, Harry Smith, Liam Campbell, Adam Banks, Luke Carson
