Match Report: Sunderland Men’s 6ths 2-6 Teeside Men’s 3rds

Team Sunderland Mens 6ths regretted mistakes made after a clinical Teeside Men’s 3rds cruised to victory.

A thrilling first half saw Team Sunderland open the scoring with a header from Harrison Achigbue. It didn’t take long for Teeside to level the scoring thanks to a tidy finish from Richard Adenegan. Momentum favouring Teeside allowed them to add another two goals courtesy of Ugonna Gregory and Rayan Bedoud.

Costly errors in the early stages of the 2nd half by Team Sunderland allowed Bedoud and Paul Kamuya to capitalise adding to Teesides advantage. Peter Abdelmalek restored some hope for Team Sunderland when he scored soon after. However, this hope soon faded when Kamuya grabbed his second of the game and secured victory for the away side.

Team Sunderland Sixes were back in action this week after having a game called off in gameweek five.

A scrappy clearance from Teesside gave Team Sunderland a well deserved opening goal with Achigbue heading home from a deflection in the 17th minute.

After a mass amount of missed Team Sunderland chances, Teesside levelled the score in the 27th minute through Adenegan with a wonderous strike from distance.

A crumbling Team Sunderland’s woes continued when they conceded two goals in 5 minutes. A shot by Adenegan was saved by keeper George Mosley but it wasn’t enough to stop the unmarked Gregory tapping it in. Teesside’s third followed in similar suit with Adenegan picking out the unmarked Bedoud at the back post who easily scored from close range.

In the second half Teeside continued how they left off with almost an exact replica of the previous goal, Kamuya found an unmarked Bedoud at the back post who converted his second of the game in the 50th minute.  Just seven minutes later, a shocking Sunderland mix up at the back allowed Kamuya to intercept 10 yards from goal to score his first of the match.

A determined Team Sunderland displayed a heroic attitude as Abdelamalek grabbed a consolation goal after a good passage of play in the 65th minute. With 12 minutes left and pushing for an allusive third goal, Team Sunderland were caught out on the counter as Kamuya completed a solo run and wrapped up the game for Teesside allowing them to leave with all three points.
