Academy lads win third game of the season

Victory keeps them out of the bottom two

The Academy lads won their third game of the season on Wednesday afternoon when they beat Frickley Athletic 3-1 at Blackwell Meadows.

Quakers played against the strong wind in the first half, and despite those difficulties, led 2-1 at half time with goals by Brandon Morrison and Sanny Lingthep.

Quakers dominated the second half, and Lewis Alderson scored the third. They could have scored more, but one effort hit the bar, a couple of others narrowly missed, and the Frickley keeper pulled off some good saves.

Quakers are now up to third from bottom, four points ahead of Frickley who have played a game more.
