Furness College football stars shine in Salford

Furness College: 4 vs 3: Salford City College, Eccles 6th Form 

Furness College travelled to Salford College to play this Men’s Category 3A premier game. The game started well for Furness as they kept the ball for long periods of the first half.

The breakthrough finally came as Furness took the lead through Justen Pearce.

Furness continued to dominate, but it was Salford who got the next two goals, one being a rocket that flew into the top corner from 25 yards out. As the second half come to an end, Furness deservedly drew level through Tyler Wood.

The second half started much as the same as the first one, with Furness having all of the possession and Salford looking to counter attack. Salford then took the lead from Furness failing to close down a shot on the edge of the box, with 3-2 Salford.

Salford changed formation to try to see out the win, but the pressure was building as Furness showed a lot of character to come back.

Thom Oakes was the hero as he come on as a substitute and scored two goals within the last 15 minutes to give Furness all three points. Overall a well-deserved win for Furness in an entertaining game.

Thom Oakes, Sam Purlsow and Luca Fleming stood out for Furness.
