TyneMet firsts progress in cup with goals galore

Tyne Metropolitan College first team came away from a potentially tricky cup tie with a convincing win in very windy conditions at Sunderland 2nds in the third round of the Premier Cup.

The first 20 minutess seemed to pass by without anything of note as both teams struggled to handle the conditions.

However, TyneMet, against the strong gale, made the breakthrough midway through the half with an element of fortune surrounding the opening goal.

Joe Walton ran onto a through ball but his touch was heavy and seemed to deceive the keeper and the ball rolled softly in the net.

There was no luck surrounding the second which arrived on 27 minutes when following a Sunderland corner a swift counter attack was rounded off by Reece Harrison who slotted past the keeper.

The home side struggled to stay in the game as Jack Cooper bagged a quick fire brace on 31 and 36 minutes for a 4-0 lead.

Sunderland were handed a glimmer of hope right on half-time when a penalty was scored after Cooper mistimed a tackle in the box.

Sunderland roared back into the game with two goals inside ten second half minutes.

This seemed to wake up TyneMet who immediately scored a fifth when Joe Walton grabbed his second with a fine 20-yard volley.

It was all one way traffic after that as Cooper completed his hat-trick on the hour and further goals by Paul Dunn and sub Scott Woodhouse (2) made up the impressive goals tally.

Tyne Met progressed into round four and now await the draw for the last 32 in the National Cup.
