Resounding win for Limavady United

Thursday, 19 January 2017

Bangor..................1 Limavady United................5

WHAT a performance from United at the Bangor Fuels Arena on Saturday.
After falling behind to an early goal, the Roesiders dominated this game and could easily have scored more, although they were helped considerably by some woeful defending from the home side who have now conceded five goals in three consecutive games.
Bangor actually started the brighter and Wells turned Baxter's stinging shot around the post for a corner on seven minutes. After confusion in the six yard box, the ball bounced off Wells and came off Long for a goal that he knew little about.
United took this setback in their stride however and took control of the midfield with first, Owens seeing his effort well blocked by Gibbons and then Crown flashing a header just wide of the post from a free kick.
McCready was causing problems and on 15 minutes, he took the ball down and in one movement, had turned and volleyed just past the post.
He went close again on 23 minutes, darting into the box, leaving two defenders in his wake before bringing the best out of Gibbons who pushed the ball out of danger with a diving save.
The equaliser duly arrived on 26 minutes when Bangor's defence went to sleep, allowing Hume a free header inside the box to turn in Owens' pinpoint cross.
He was on target again on 39 minutes when McKeever fired across the goal and he was first to react to the loose ball, slamming the ball into the bottom corner despite Gibbons getting a hand to it. Some three minutes later, he was on hand again, profiting from Dean's horrible back pass with Gibbons bravely blocking McCready's challenge but the clearance fell to Hume for the third goal in a 16 minute hat trick.
