Sullivan travelled to play Wallace High School in what was thought to be the hardest match in their group.  Despite the rain, a good crowd of SUS supporters watched as the boys settled into the first half. Fifteen minutes in, SUS went ahead with a drag flick by Gibson from a short corner. Sullivan had the better of the possession in the first half but on the half hour Wallace scored from a short to make it 1-1. Within 2 minutes Wallace took the lead. SUS upped the pace and were rewarded with another short corner that Gibson converted just before half time.

Throughout the second half Sullivan had almost all the possession and controlled the game. SUS went ahead with a good passage of play from Willis along the baseline and a Crookshanks strike from the top of the D to go ahead 3-2. A few substitutions helped to maintain their pace of play. The boys varied their movement of the ball building from the back four.  M. Morris made it 4-2 half way through the second half from open play along the right hand side. A green card for Wallace allowed Sullivan to take advantage with a well-worked move, Carson made it 5-2. Wallace had a few chances in the closing 10 with two shorts that were well cleared by the visitors.

A comfortable win for the boys and some very encouraging passages of play particularly in the second half.
