Mountjoy United 4 NFC Kesh 7.

Four goals from Lee Walker helped Kesh move to the top of division one, as they recorded yet another high scoring victory. 
The table toppers are now averaging more than four goals per game, but despite recording a 7-4 victory over Mountjoy manager Nicky Noble was not totally happy with the performance.
“We didn’t play that well,” he said. 
“I thought we could have played better but its three points and that’s what it is all about. I knew it was going to be an end to end game and it felt like both teams wanted to keep scoring. I felt we should have played better. 1-0 would have done me instead of 7-4!”
It took ten minutes for Kesh to hit the front. Nathan Cashel took possession on the left wing and whipped in a low cross across the edge of the penalty area, with Mark Jones controlling it with his first touch and placing it into the bottom corner. 
John Edgar levelled the match with a clinical finish at the back post, but Kesh soon regained the lead. 
Nathan Cashel’s weaving run past four players was eventually brought to a halt with a foul inside the penalty area, and Walker fired into the top corner from the spot. 
The goals continued to flow, and Mountjoy pulled it back to 2-2 when Edgar stabbed home from close range. Again Kesh responded and when Walker was brought down inside the area he stepped up to give the away team a half time lead.
Mark Jones added his second of the game when he reacted quickly to his shot being saved by knocking in the rebound, and although Edgar completed his hat-trick for Mountjoy to reduce the gap, Kesh were soon back among the goals. 
This time it was Walker’s turn to bag a hat-trick when he ran on to Mark Jones’ back heel and curled a shot into the corner from 18 yards. 
Mountjoy again reduced the deficit it to one with a deflected shot from Fraser, but Mark McAuley responded for Kesh and Walker then netted his fourth of the day to seal the victory.
Kesh now face title challengers Strathroy, and the manager believes they can go into the game with no pressure on them.
 “It is our biggest test since we played Rangers,” said Nicky.
 “We will see how we go but we are just the boys in the league that are making up the numbers, and we have nothing to lose. 
“It’s a big game and hopefully we will turn up for it,” he concluded.
