  • Description

    ARSENAL, ON THEIR HOME GROUND, OUTPLAYED VISITING SUNDERLAND TO SCORE A COMFORTABLE 3-1 WIN IN THE FIRST DIVISION TODAY.

    ARSENAL SCORED LATE IN THE FIRST HALF AND MOMENTS LATER SUNDERLAND EQUALISED ... BUT DESPITE ALL THEIR EFFORTS IN THE SECOND HALF WERE UNABLE TO SCORE AGAIN.

    SUNDERLAND BEGAN IN LIVELY FASHION AND HAD THE ARSENAL DEFENDERS UNDER PRESSURE ... BUT ALTHOUGH THEY FOUGHT HARD, SUNDERLAND WERE NOT ABLE TO SCORE.

    ARSENAL DID THEIR SHARE OF ATTACKING, SWEEPING THE BALL DOWNFIELD, BUT DESPITE SEVERAL SHOTS, THEY TOO COULD NOT SCORE.

    THEN, ONLY FIVE MINUTES BEFORE HALF-TIME, ARSENAL'S PETER STOREY WAS AWARDED A PENALTY .... HE PUT THE BALL INTO THE NET TO PUT ARSENAL IN THE LEAD.

    ON THE STROKE OF HALF-TIME SUNDERLAND EQUALISED FROM A FLUKE SHOT. BOBBY KERR, IN A TUSSLE WITH ARSENAL DEFENDER McLINTOCK, JABBED AT THE BALL AND IT CANNONED OFF McLINTOCK'S BACK INTO THE NET.

    ARSENAL MADE A BETTER START IN THE SECOND HALF ... AFTER TEN MINUTES RAY KENNEDY, PLAYING IN ONLY HIS SECOND LEAGUE GAME FOR ARSENAL, PUT THEM INTO THE LEAD AGAIN. HIS TEAM-MATE MARINELLO HAD MISSED A SHOT AND KENNEDY GOT POSSESSION AND SLAMMED THE BALL INTO THE NET.

    SUNDERLAND WERE STILL IN THE GAME BUT THEY WERE NOT HAVING ANY LUCK WHEN THEY GOT THE BALL DOWN NEAR THE GOAL.

    ARSENAL WERE LUCKIER ... THEY WENT ON TO SCORE A THIRD GOAL AND A COMFORTABLE WIN OVER THE NORTHERN SIDE.
