Morien goes on four-goal Killing spree

Sunday Sun - - Football -

A FOUR-GOAL salvo from Mal­colm Morien, which took his league tally to 30 for the cam­paign, saw Killing­worth com­fort­ably dis­miss hosts Percy Main Am­a­teurs 4-0 yes­ter­day af­ter­noon.

Vic­tory for Killing­worth saw them move sec­ond in the ta­ble on goal dif­fer­ence from Newcastle Blue Star.

The Main also missed a penalty and dropped a place af­ter Al­nwick Town moved up to sixth with a last-gasp win at home to Shankhouse.

Only one goal was net­ted in the first, Jonathon Col­ley with the opener for Al­nwick and he dou­bled the lead early in the sec­ond half. A quick-fire brace from Kevin Carr lev­elled the score, his sec­ond com­ing from the re­bound of a missed penalty.

Jonathyn Quin restored Al­nwick’s ad­van­tage just af­ter the hour but the Hoose lev­elled again with three min­utes re­main­ing, Christo­pher Mar­shall with the goal.

How­ever, Ross Muers net­ted in stop­page time with the last kick to snatch all three points.

The other Premier Divi­sion match saw Gateshead Rutherford en­joy a com­fort­able home win over Seaton Delaval as Dan Fullen net­ted twice in a 5-0 win. Dan Irvine opened the scor­ing on his de­but for the hosts, while Nikki Langston and Stephen Hall also reg­is­tered.

The rest of the Premier Divi­sion sides were on cup duty with Newcastle Univer­sity win­ning the big clash in the Northum­ber­land Benev­o­lent Bowl, beat­ing Newcastle Blue Star away 3-1.

The Stu­dents were lead­ing by two at the break, Con­rad Zyko and Olly Walden the scor­ers; Iury De Mo­raes pulled one back mid­way through the sec­ond half but Univer­sity’s pro­gres­sion was sealed in the clos­ing stages through Lef­teris Alambri­tis.

Chris Zolden net­ted twice as Whit­ley Bay A came from be­hind to win 3-2 at FC United of Newcastle, Sven Hart also scor­ing. Replies came from Anthony Brown and Jor­dan Stevens and there was a tasty nine-goal af­fair at Newcastle Chem­fica where they edged New Ford­ley 5-4, five goals com­ing in the first half, with three con­verted penal­ties.

Jor­dan Wat­son net­ted three times for the vis­i­tors, twice from the spot and Lee Richard­son got the other but they found them­selves un­done by a Steve McLaugh­lin brace, one a penalty, and goals from Chris Ho­mans, Fer­gus Lynch and Gar­rick Mur­phy.

The re­main­ing first round tie saw a soli­tary ef­fort six min­utes from time by Jonny Ed­wards give Walling­ton the win away at 10-man Pon­te­land.
