SPORTING CLUB TOO GOOD FOR THE BLUES

Tynemouth began with high hopes of matching top of the league Whitley Bay SC Yellows but found out early on why the visitors were top of the league. Forced into a re-shuffle with new keeper Hal Dickinson calling of injured Jack Toner took the gloves.
Whitley Bay took the early initiative but Tynemouth kept them at bay until a defensive lapse allowed the visitors to score. This lead was soon doubled when a low cross into the box was not dealt with allowing the Sporting Club winger to score at the far post.
Tynemouth were at sixes and sevens at this point , offering little offensively and it was no surprise when a poor clearance fell to a Whitley bay played who struck a firm shot into the net.
Tynemouth rallied somewhat with Watson and Higginson going close before the latter latched on to a good through ball to finish well- 1-3. Something to play for. Tynemouth were having a better spell at this point but were rocked just before half time when the visitors added their 4th goal. 1-4 HT
Tynemouth began the second half in a more determined fashion and with a wind advantage began to create the Whitley defense some problems, although they nearly fell further behind when Howels and Skeja both had to clear off the line in a single passage of play. It was to be Tynemouth who drew the next blood, however after Watson prodded the ball past the visiting keeper to reduce the arrears. Indeed Tynemouth were on top at this stage, probably for the first time in the game and were unlucky not to add a third goal when Higginson beat the keeper only to see his shot run agonisingly past the post. What was more galling was that Whitley Bay went down the other end and scored almost immediately to put them 5-2 up.
Heads when down for a time allowing the visitors to increase their lead to 7-2, whilst this probably flattered them somewhat they were fully deserving of a good lead. Tynemouth worked hard for a consolation goal with Higginson denied again by an excellent save from the Whitley keeper who also made an excellent save from Taylors free kick. Taylor was also unlucky to see another free kick cannon off the bar into the waiting arms of the Whitley keeper
Whiltley Bay deserved this victory which shows why they currently top the league and are the best team Tynemouth have faced so far this season.
Tynemouth should take some encouragement from the chances created in the second half and with a little more composure in defence the score could have been a bit closer
