Five star BCS National Cup win for TyneMet College

TyneMet College reached the last 16 of the BCS National Premier Cup thanks to a 5-1 win at the City of Sunderland College.

The game kicked off in wet and windy conditions on a 3G pitch and it was TyneMet that adapted the quickest to the difficult conditions.

On eight minutes Jack Pinchen’s cross from the left found striker Shane Jones in the box and controlled the ball and slotted it left footed into the bottom corner.

It was 2-0 on 23 minutes when Pinchen pressed the home defence and forced an error that saw a back pass under hit and left him to fire home.

TyneMet’s dominance continued when almost every player was involved with some slick passes that eventually saw Antonio Manco combine with substitute Mikel Thompson who side-footed the ball into the far corner of the net.

Sunderland did have a sniff of a chance before the break but it was well saved by Callum Straker.

Any sign of the home side getting back into the game was extinguished when Thompson slid the ball through for Jones to make it 4-1.

The home side did respond when their striker headed home a corner.

The scoring was finished off when Dillon Blake got on the score sheet with an acrobatic volley from Thompson’s cross.
