Youth - Sunderland v Norwich report

Recommended Posts

Hope this helps6-1

A hat-trick from Martyn Waghorn helped slick Sunderland into the

fourth round of the FA Youth Cup. The in-form striker scored either side of half-time and late in

the game as the Black Cats turned on the style in front of Roy


Jordan Henderson opened the scoring in the 23rd minute but

Norwich were back on level terms two minutes later. Once Waghorn made it 2-1 in the 28th minute, there was no

looking back for the Black Cats. Adam Reed, two more from Waghorn, and substitute Ryan Noble

completed the rout at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland had already missed two good chances when they took

the lead in the 23rd minute through Henderson. The goal stemmed from Waghorn''s hard work. The striker

closed down Luke Emson, the Canaries keeper, forcing him to miscue

a clearance. It fell to Henderson and his first-time effort sailed

over the back-pedalling Emson into the net.

Norwich hit back two minutes later. Danny Kelly got up at the

back post to head Damon Lathorpe''s corner through a crowd of

players and into the corner of the net. The Black Cats were dominant in the first half and they

deservedly retoook the lead in the 28th minute. Waghorn scored it

from a near-post position, flicking a header past Emson from

Henderson''s corner.

It was 3-1 in the 40th minute. Reed''s shot from outside the

area hit a defender, wrong-footing the keeper. A mistake by Kelly allowed Sunderland to make it 4-1 in the 58th

minute. Josh Home-Jackson dispossessed the defender and slotted a

pass into Waghorn''s path. He had the easy job of finishing the

move to get his second of the game. A good pass by centre-back Niall McArdle sent Waghorn clear

in the 62nd minute but this time Kelly did well, getting back to

block the Sunderland''s man''s shot.

Nick Davey should have pulled one back for City in the 67th

minute but he slotted a shot wide from 10 yards. Pacy substutute Noble, who plays the under-16s, made it 5-1

in the 77th minute, shortly after coming on. The

striker outpaced a defender, took a touch and slotted it past


Waghorn was inches away from completing his hat-trick in the

80th minute, smashing a shot just past the post, and had a shot

blocked near the end as Sunderland piled forward in search of a


Waghorn did get his hat-trick in the 89th minute, finishing well

with his left foot after a terrific through-ball from
