Northern Fury FC 3 (Corey WAPLES 23’, Michael EISENHUT 27’, Joe THORNTON 70’p)
Northern Fury ended a two-match losing streak to defeat Redlands United 3-1 at Cleveland Showgrounds on Saturday.
Corey Waples and Michael Eisenhut scored inside the opening half hour to put Fury ahead at half-time before Joe Thornton secured the win from the penalty spot in the second half.
Red Devils player and assistant coach Russell Woodruffe conceded his team simply weren’t up to task against a pumped up Fury outfit.
“They definitely won the midfield and in all honesty I think they wanted that little bit more. We weren’t as connected as we would have liked to be,” Woodruffe explained.
