The Albion 2 v 2 Moneyslane 3rds

The Albion played this league game at the Millbridge as a result of the cancellation of the Swifts league match and they put on one of their better performances in recent weeks.

Things did not start of good however as they conceded a goal after 10 minutes but they recovered to equalise with a good goal from Ross Bingham.

In the second half Moneyslane found themselves down to ten men as a result of a rash of injuries and they allowed the Albion to enjoy most of the possession. Jason Brennan popped up in a goal mouth scramble midway through the second half to give the Albion the lead.

Moneyslane equalised in the dying moments of injury time when a forward headed home from an unmarked position.

Davy Teggarty’s Albion got their first three points on Saturday with a hard fought victory over a hard working Carryduff Athletic side.

Featuring up to seven teenagers in the line up the team started well and were ahead after three minutes when Matthew Murnin’s 40 yard shot dipped under the cross bar at the right moment to beat the keeper all ends up.

The visitors were level after 35 minutes however on 40 minutes Greg Allison rounded the keeper to make it 2- 1.

The second half was very close however Jason Brennan put the Albion 3-1 up on 65 minutes when he back heeled the ball into the net.

Carryduff got back into the game in the 80th minute to make it 3-2 and thereafter Albion keeper Johnny McGreevy was called on to make a few decent saves. Stuart Wilcox had the ball in the net late on but it was ruled out for offside.
