Another Good Win
Shildon AFC were at Dunston UTS on Tuesday 12th August 2014 for their first away game of the season and once again scored 4 goals, winning the game 4 – 2.
Dunston got off to a flying start taking the lead after only 5 minutes when a 35 yard cross come shot from Danny Halliday went over Keith Finch into the back of the net.
Shildon were sluggish early on but got stronger as the game progressed. After getting into their rhythm they leveled on 35 minutes with a great team move finished off by Mark Hudson.
Half Time: Dunston ATS 1 Shildon AFC 1
Five minutes after the break a brilliant 4 man team effort saw Shildon’s centre forward Paul Connor fire low into the bottom corner.
Just after, Mark Hudson’s fierce shot skimmed the bar.
On 76 minutes a Hudson perfect cross from the left found Carl Jones who powerfully headed over the keeper for 3 – 1, the goal a carbon copy of the one he scored on Saturday against Billingham.
Shildon were in control and playing attractive passing football and justifiably went 4 – 1 up from another great team effort with man-of-the-match Mark Hudson finishing off the move by hammering the ball in off the post.
However, a minute later Dunston got their 2nd of the night when Andy Bulford turned and into the far corner.
Right at the end Ben Wood was unlucky not to score when his shot hit the post.
