Causeway off the mark after eclipsing Tipton
4:49pm Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
CAUSEWAY United clinched their first Midland Alliance victory of the season this week with a 2-1 triumph over Tipton Town in a match that marked their return to The Grove.
A bumper Tuesday night crowd turned up for the occasion and watched Causeway take charge in the second half where goals from Carl Hind and Jack Pearlman made sure of the points.
Manager Andy Mole was full of praise for goalkeeper Tom Turner following the game.
He said: “Tom kept us in it early on. Tipton really came at us for the opening 20 to 30 minutes but Tom pulled off a couple of great saves to keep them out.
“In the second half, Tipton began to run out of ideas and we always lookerd the likely winners.
“The winning goal was superb. Matt Wheyman fizzed in a free kick which Jack Pearlman got his head to. It was a great goal”.
Causeway turn their attentions to the FA Cup this Saturday when they travel to Midland Combination high-fliers Bolehall Swifts in the extra preliminary round.
Manager Mole can select from a position of strength with key players Aaron Lloyd and Alex Cowley back available after serving four match bans.
