Blair’s boys cruise to away day victory

GRANSHA Institute had impressive 4-1 success away to Tamnaherin Celtic, in the Saturday Morning League, at the weekend.

Thursday, 19th September 2013, 10:54 am

Tamnaherin forced an early corner and as Gransha failed to clear, Marty Doherty crashed a half volley high into the net.

However, that goal sparked ’Stute into action and they forced the issue having enjoyed long spells in possession but they failed to trouble the keeper.

Eight minutes before half-time Gransha deservedly levelled when Ryan Varma hit the target.

And deep in to added time in the first half Gransha took the lead when Aaron Tarr, who appeared to have been in an offside position, raced clear to drive the ball into the Tanmaherin net.

Late in the second half Gransha extended their lead when Arnie Doherty won a race with the Tamnaherin keeper and he lofted the ball home to make it 3-1.

As the game drew to a close ’Stute added a fourth, a rare mistake by the Tams keeper gifted the ball to Tarr and he weaved his way around the goalkeeper to gleefully slide the ball home.

Meanwhile in the North West this weekend Churchill United will be aiming to reach their first cup final in a number of season when they host BBOB in the Summer Cup semi-final.
