BLUEBELL United made a big statement as they look to reel in the LSL Sunday Senior leaders St Mochta’s, sweeping to a 6-0 win over Malahide United last weekend.
With Mochta’s taking just a point from two games in the last week, it allowed the Bell a sniff of a chance of getting right back into the title race.
The upshot of this win is that they now sit four points off Mochta’s but with a game in hand and some momentum.
Incredibly, the Malahide tie at Red Cow was scoreless at half-time before Andy Noonan’s side belatedly found their form.
They soon broke the deadlock when Sean Byrne skilfully play in Karl Russell, who was moved from his usual right back spot to fill in at left back. He crossed into the danger zone where the ball took a heavy deflection up and over the visiting goalkeeper.
Two minutes later, Stephen Larkin won the ball deep in Malahide territory and played Shane Stritch through to make it 2-0. Gareth Cooney got the third when he gobbled up a rebound from Stritch’s initial shot to tap in.
David Scully then added a fourth the former League Of Ireland player volleyed home to register his first goal for the club.
Bluebell’s fifth was a well worked team goal which was finished off by Stephen Larkin. The former Sheriff attacker got another late on when the ball played back to the keeper bobbled up over his foot and trickled towards the goal and Larkin followed in to tap into an empty net.
