Kendal Town 1 Gateshead 3

Gateshead Got the job done at Kendal on Tuesday night, with a fine passing display and pride in the shirt.

The Heed took the lead through a Phil Cave penalty, after Graeme Armstrong had been chopped down in the box.

Graeme Armstrong got himself on the score sheet after delicately passing the ball past the
Kendal Keeper.

The last ten minutes of the first half seen Kendal push forward and stake out in the Gateshead half, but Gateshead defence stood tall and did not cave in.
Kendal started the second half as they finished the first, pushing Gateshead back looking for an opening.

Bad communication from Scott Allison to James Curtis seen the Gateshead keeper in no mans land when Curtis headed the ball back to only find a empty net, not the type of goal Curtis

With Kendal back in the game at 2-1 Gateshead moved up a gear to look for the goal to kill the game off.
Davie Southern's free kick sealed the win, this free kick came after the Kendal number 4 got his second yellow following a continuous flow of fouls.
Wayne Phillips had the chance to make it 4-1 in the dieing seconds of the game, but the keeper and two defenders all had to scramble the ball away.
