Mount Pearl vs Feildians

Action from Mount Pearl vs Feildians contest

Pickford leads Mount Pearl to victory

A two goal effort from Justin Pickford and shut out goalkeeping by Matt Peddle, led Mount Pearl to a 2-0 victory over the Feildians in Molson Challenge Cup action at Feildians Grounds. Pickford, who has struggled thus far this season in finding the back of the net, opened the scoring at the 12 minute mark of the first half. But for the vast majority of the first half, it was missed opportunities by the Feildians squad that permitted Mount Pearl to carry a one goal lead into the dressing room at half time.
Can't find the net
Actually, if one were to look at the Feildians record this season ( 1 win -6 loses - 1 tie), it is not really indicative of their play. Failing to capitalize on golden opportunities is a real reflection of their squad this season. Early in the second half, the Feildians were pressing but somehow they just couldn't score. Then at the 63 minute mark, Justin Pickford hit for his second goal of the contest and I must add, it was a beauty. But for the remainder of the game, both teams were waiting for goal scoring chances rather than trying to create them. The end result was Mount Pearl did what they had to do, and as a result they were awarded 3 points for their efforts. At this point, the Feildians match against Western United FC scheduled for August 8th in Corner Brook is looking as the game that very well may decide the 4th place seeding for the Labour -Day weekend play-offs.
