DESPITE the shock of falling behind to Chris Downey's early goal, United eventually overpowered their opponents for a comfortable victory in this friendly which was arranged to compensate for the lack of a game this weekend. United were quickly on terms, through a typical Paul Owens diving header.
After the break, it was the Joe McCready show as he quickly marked his entry with a fine strike. From that point on, it was one way traffic. Jordan Thompson then took his chance to score a quick third.
With United rampant, the game became target practice.
McCready's second was a curler which took a deflection and he got his hat trick with a goal worthy of any game, bringing the ball down before swivelling to shoot into the top corner.
The 5-1 scoreline quickly became 6-1 as Murray scored with a deft finish and in the closing minutes, the same player scored the seventh.
