Boys main­tain win­ning record

Sunderland Echo - - Sport -

Sun­der­land Boys were look­ing to ex­tend their 100% win­ning start to the league sea­son when they trav­elled to face a Stock­ton Pri­mary School­boys.

The Boys started the game on the front foot and forced a num­ber of early cor­ners from which Jude Cog­don fired in a num­ber of dan­ger­ous de­liv­er­ies.

Matthew Tay­lor got on the end of two of th­ese de­liv­er­ies, but saw his first header clear the cross­bar be­fore he head­ing wide.

How­ever, Sun­der­land did take the lead in the 15th minute when Bai­ley Cor­ner worked his way along the touch­line to cre­ate a shoot­ing op­por­tu­nity for him­self which he fired across the keeper and into the far cor­ner of the net.

Ryly Dee­han’s in­tro­duc­tion on 20 min­utes from the bench saw the boys add a fur­ther two goals.

Dee­han in­creased the lead with his first touch when he rose the high­est to head home an Ai­dan Mea­gan cor­ner.

From the kick off, Sun­der­land won the ball back im­me­di­ately and broke up­field where Cor­ner re­leased Dee­han, who then fired home past a stranded keeper from the edge of the area with only his sec­ond touch of the game.

Cor­ner added his sec­ond goal of the game shortly be­fore half time when Jesse Nel­son played him in to slot home and give the Boys a 4-0 half time lead.

The sec­ond half proved to be a lot closer af­fair, but the Boys went 5-0 up when Cor­ner com­pleted his hat­trick, get­ting on the end of a Dee­han cor­ner.

To Stock­ton’s credit, they re­fused to lie down and re­duced the ar­rears with a screamer of a goal which flew past Finley Robertson in the Sun­der­land goal.

Sun­der­land roared back and cre­ated a num­ber of fur­ther chances, but the clos­est the side came to a sixth goal was when Lu­cas Tay­lor struck the wood­work af­ter a spell of sus­tained pres­sure.

With no fur­ther scor­ing the game fin­ished 5-1 to Sun­der­land who ex­tended their 100% win­ning record with a third win in three Har­ri­son Cup games.
