Lurgan Town MU13s kicked off against Markethill and passed the ball about the pitch well finding pass after pass. On the 5th min Lurgan were soon rewarded with a goal. Aidan Quinn found himself 1 on 1 with the keeper and had the finest of touches to take it around the keeper and roll it into an empty net.
Lurgan then pressed Markethill into their own penalty box only the final ball wasn’t there. Lurgan soon got their second goal as Codey ferris powered past a couple of defenders and unleashed his shot past the keeper 2-0. Lurgan pushed Markethill hard and should have scored a few more goals only for the keeper and some bad touches letting them down. Codey was soon on the score sheet again as he raced through the defence only to be met with the on rushing keeper. He lofted the ball over the keeper and into the net. 3-0 Lurgan.
The second half started like the first with Lurgan hungry for more goals as it wasn’t long into the second half when Stefan King tormented the defenders with his pace and skill to slot Lurgan’s 4th goal past the keeper. Markethill’s only shot of the game was hit wide after their striker broke free from the high defensive line. Ben English raced out and put the player of and he shot wide.
It wasn’t long before Lurgan got their 5th goal with Stefan King turning the defence and shooting past the keeper. Lurgan where awarded a penalty. Levi Robinson took it only the keeper saved well. Levi could have scored a couple just wasn’t to be today. Lurgan found the net again with some lovely 1 to 1 touches and Stefan King completed his hatrick of the day. 6-0 Lurgan Town.
The boys played brilliant today. Well done.
