Hull’s Men’s 4ths 3-4 Sunderland’s Men’s 3rds

A last minute winner from Valentine Enwela sent Sunderland 3rds into the next round of the Northern Conference Cup.

Enwela and Tega gave Sunderland a 2-1 half time lead, with Hull responding in between the two Sunderland strikes, as the visitor’s took advantage of the strong first half wind.

Hull then drew level once again, 15 minutes into the second half only for Sunderland to retake the lead 4 minutes later.

The hosts drew level for a third time before Enwela’s brilliant strike secured the visitor’s victory.

The first real chance fell to Hull, just three minutes in, as their right back volleyed a good chance over the bar, before, against the run of play, Sunderland took an early lead through an emphatic finish from Enwela.

Hull continued to surrender great opportunities before Hull’s attacking midfielder fired them level with a well taken finish into the roof of the net.

Tega’s second goal in as many games gave Sunderland an unlikely half time lead after latching onto a bouncing kick from goalkeeper Killich.

Hull squandered yet another chance just moments into the second half as they poked wide with only Killich to beat. However, Hull’s number nine eventually scored as his left footed strike snuck past Killich drawing Hull level again.

Ibrahim’s tap in finish quickly restored Sunderland’s lead as Enwela’s superb free kick rattled of the underside of the crossbar leaving him with the simplest of tasks.

A brilliant strike into the roof of the net form the edge of the box made it 3-3, only for Valentine Enwela’s pinpoint accurate strike, to send Sunderland through and to cap of a MOTM performance.
