mullion 3-1 st ives

this week mullion took on 5th place st ives in the league at clifden parc!!

with a strong wind and sideways rain mullion started the game completely dominating the first 15mins,having enough chances to take an early lead,with nothing going their way with the refs decisions either it looked like it was going to be one of them days!!

with nick slade putting a shot wide,will duke blazing over from 10yrds.dan stidwell hitting the crossbar and a nicky medlin freekick saved well by the keeper!!but it was the visitors who opened the scoring on 20mins when a long ball over the top was held up by the wind and mis-judged by keeper jason kitchen for the striker to run on and put st ives 1-0 up!!st ives got into the game and went on trying to create chances but cudnt breakthrough a tough well organized mullion defence!!on the half hour mark mullion equalised when a good ball from a freekick near the corner left ben tremayne unselfishly laying the ball off for stidwell to delicately curl one in the top corner from 12yrds!!

jus before the half time whistle a st ives player went through on goal only to put his shot wide but was awarded a penalty as kitchen brought him down when the ball was out of play,justice was served as kitchen pulled of a quality save to keep the scores level at half time!!

the second half saw the return of mullion defender david cheetham an striker chris lawrence who both played a good game and did their part!!

a big st ives outfit started to get physical as they couldnt keep up with a young pacey mullion side,but mullion gave as good as they got!!

an hour in st ives began to get sloppy and every mullion attack nearly led to a goal,on the counter attack st ives rarely got in to the last third but when st ived midfeilder saw kitchen of his line he attempted an audatious 30yrd effort which looked dealt with until ben stidwell got a boot to it and deflected it past the keeper and nearly costing them as it sailed just wide!!

minutes later st ives had another penalty appeal when their no`9 went down in the box but this time was turned down by the ref!!

st ives last attack was cancelled out by chris ensink who came out of no where and put in a powerhouse challenge to prevent a shot on taget on the edge of the 18yrd box!!

when stidwell broke down the right wing and beat the defender to the by-line he pulled it back for rob carey to "dummy"his shot for tremayne who arrived late to calmly bury it from 18yrds!!

10mins to go and the game was all mullion,all aboard the showboat when a mullion attack was cleared but picked up by ensink who sent the defender the wrong way with a double drag back and then played the ball to stidwell whos cross took a deflection and ended up in the net for 3-1,

mullion added a 4th 2mins later when a good passing move involving carey left stidwell to slot

it away but was ruled out by the offside flag!!

mullion continued to create but ensink put his 1-on-1 which his mother could of scored wide,and stidwell schoolboy kicked the ground instead of the ball to miss a half decent chance!!

a great action packed game to watch!!

but mullion played their game right to th end and and thats what cost st ives!!

hold on, if u werent at the game then you can't go making remarks about a person's views on it! and i dont think implying that mullion think there brazil is a fair assumption either.. 3wins out of 4 for a team down the bottom is good going doesn't matter who the manager is the players are who make it happen!! considering st ives had only lost 1game before this one i think a 3-1 win must show that the lads must of played well and deserve alot of credit! keep it up boys!!
