World United 5 - 3 St Teresa’s

10th October 2010


WU started well enough and could have taken the lead when a low drive from Ciaran Murphy flashed past the upright. Other chance followed but instead of capitalising on their early dominance WU found themselves one down when the visitors striker deceived defenders & goalkeeper with a first shot before Hall had time to set himself.
Ciaran Murphy thought he had levelled when he ran onto a beautifully weighted through ball from Chris Moffett but after lobbing the oncoming keeper the ball drifted agonisingly past the far post.

0-2 & 1-2

Things got worse for WU when St Teresa’s went two ahead after some crisp passing on the edge of the area a marauding midfielder found the top corner of the net with a cracking lob.  Shaking off the ring rust after a month’s lay-off WU struck back immediately when an inch perfect cross form Chris Moffett found the head of Ciaran Murphy who watched the keeper make a great stop.  However from the resulting rebound brother Adrian Murphy was on hand to swivel and smash home from close range.


Two minutes later Ciaran equalised for WU when he latched onto a through ball and smashed home a low drive from the right hand edge of the box.


Ten minutes from the interval a St Teresa’s corner from the left had the WU defence in trouble as they failed on several attempts to clear their lines.  Eventually the ball dropping to the left sided player whose goal bound shot was stopped on the line by the hands of Parkinson.  The resulting penalty was struck home with keeper Hall being sent the wrong way.

Half Time 2-3


WU won a free kick 30 yards out straight in front of goal and up stepped Dean who’s floated ball into the box seem to be drifting into the keeper’s hands however the bounce deceived him and somehow the ball ended up in the back of the net to level the scores once again.


Chris Moffett who had tormented defenders with his pace for the whole game, got his reward when he power his way down the right flank and cutting into the box fired home from a tight angle.


Ciaran Murphy got his second to wrap a fine display when he robbed the right back out on the touch line and after battling through some robust tackling his beautifully measured lob found the far corner of the net.
