Sis­ter act is so late - but is a clincher

The Chronicle - - Grassroots Sport Junior Football -

ST Cuth­bert’s Un­der-12s de­feated Monkwear­mouth Acad­emy 2-1 af­ter ex­tra time in the fourth round of the ESFA PlayS­ta­tion Cup.

Monkwear­mouth started strongly and twice tested Saints’ goal­keeper Jack Grib­bon cour­tesy of two lon­grange shots from Fletcher Ramsey.

Con­nor Ward at the heart of the home de­fence had to be dom­i­nant to re­pel the con­stant at­tacks.

Against the run of play, a cross found Kai Banks at the back post and he turned it home to give the Saints the lead.

At the begin­ning of the sec­ond half, Monkwear­mouth gained a cor­ner.

It evaded all the play­ers at the front post - but Ramsey stormed in to blast the ball home for the equaliser.

The Wear­siders now pushed for the win­ning goal and forced Grib­bon into a fan­tas­tic save.

Nei­ther team took its chances as the game went into ex­tra time.

An­other Monkwear­mouth shot from Jude McE­wan then had Grib­bon at full stretch. Just as the match seemed to be go­ing to penal­ties, Saints forced a cor­ner on the right.

When the cross came over the vis­i­tors’ de­fence cleared the ball to the edge of the box where Frazer Sis­ter­son was wait­ing.

He evaded two chal­lenges and then blasted the ball into the goal.

St Cuth­bert’s are away to Kingsmeadow or John Spence in the fifth round.
