Crusaders won their latest pre season game today 7-0 against Maiden City at Seaview as preparations for Thursday nights Europa League Qualifying game go to the next stage.
Declan Caddell opened the scoring with a close range header after the cross hit the bar and fell nicely at the back post where he was waiting. Maiden City took the game to Crusaders and it was a well balanced first half with both sides wasting good chances to score.
The second half saw Crusaders go up the gears and with 13 minutes of starting it was 4-0. The second goal came within minutes when Paul Heatley collected the ball and went on a trademark run before flicking the ball past the City keeper. Nearly from restart of that goal it was 3-0 when Paul Heatley tapped home on the line after Jordan Owens effort fell to him as the keeper tried to save. On 62 minutes Jordan Owens scored from close range to make it 4-0. Sub David Cushley scored Crusaders fifth when he got round a City defender as hit home and Ronan Hale made it 6-0 after finishing off a good cross. David Cushley then made it 7-0 with the last kick of the ball when he crashed home a free kick and with that the whistle was blown.
So a good win and good performance and it all looks well ahead of the Europa League Qualifier on Thursday against B36 Torshavn.
