Markethill caught Lurgan by surprise and equalised on 10 minutes. Lurgan Town responded well to this. Within 5 minutes of conceding Arnas scored with a brilliant shot from outside the box. With Lurgan still celebrating the goal Markethill scored to make it 2-2.
This spurned Lurgan Town into life. Big Codey encouraging the boys soon had Stefan splitting the Markethill defence open as he was in 1 on 1 with the keeper again. No missing this time. His shot hit the back off the net. 3-2 Lurgan. Town had learned their lesson from the previous goals they had scored and tightend up the defence and withstood the Markethill attack.
On 25 minutes Codey burst through the defence with his power and like always doesnt miss many from a 1 on 1 situation. 4-2 Lurgan.
The second half Markethill changed formation and packed the midfield. Arnas run down the wing on the 45th min and hit a shot into an empty net as the keeper was of his line. And Codey had made a blinding run to get onto the ball and slotted it in the net as the shouts for off side where roared from Markethill players but the goal stood. Lurgan now with a 3 goal Lead the game looked over but then 5 minutes later Markethill scored again.. this spurned lurgan into life again as Stefan cut the Markethill defence another 2 times in the last 10 min but sadly it wasn’t his day for the hatrick. Well done boys fantastic result.
