Lurgan Town Predators 05 were glad to be back playing competitive matches. It has been well over a year since the last one. Midway United 05 were the visitors to Lurgan Town Area. This was the first match in group 2 of the league cup. The first few mins both teams cancelled each other out. Lurgan began to find their feet and nearly opened the scoring from a Callum Carson corner. It did not take long before the Town got their deserved goal. This came from another corner. Ben Hendron reacted quickest and slotted the ball past the Midway keeper. Lurgan kept the pressure on and
Hendron nearly doubled the scoring with a header which hit the cross bar. Midway equaliser goal came in the 13th min. Town kept playing the football and went ahead again. Good work down the left side by Hendron who crossed the ball into the box and McMahon slipped the ball passed the keeper. Daniel Patterson nearly made it 3-1 but his effort hit the post. Toby Haire put a great
delivery into the box where James Kelly was very close to opening his tally for the season. Ryan Lee Brown opened his account for the season with a long range effort to made it 3-1 and the half time break. In the 2nd half both Patterson and Buck had efforts saved by the Midway keeper. Lurgan were causing Midway all sorts of problems from corners and Hendon and Green had great chances to score but couldnt keep their headers down. Town got their 4th goal from a free kick from Carson which sealed the win. With only a few minutes to go Midway nearly got one back but a good block from Jake Byers prevented the goal. Predators played some lovely football tonight and look forward to the next game against Warrenpoint. Special mention to both teams who played the game in great spirit. Its just nice seeing the boys back playing football again.
