Greens continue their unbeaten run with probably there best game of the season so far.
Greens started well with Myles hitting the post early on and our first goal coming from a clearance from our first half stand in goalie Theo (thanks) down the wing to Joseph who neatly slotted home. Scorpions then came back strong and Greens didnt clear the ball well to give them a shooting opportunity which they took 1 – 1. Greens went straight back from the kick off and Oliver steamed through the middle to finish a great solo effort to make it 2-1. Scorpions came straight back at us to level up from a corner 2 – 2. From this moment Greens took full control of the game and started to play lovely football with both defence and midfield linking up nicely to play expansive football – Great to watch as all parents commented at the end of the game. Myles then got to grips with playing offside and finished the half off strongly for us with 4 great strikers goals. The first coming from a great pass through the middle splitting their defence by Oliver for a strike on goal, the second came from great pressing of the ball by Greens for Myles to shoot and score and the third i think is one of the goals of the season so far for us with a great pass out from the back by James down the wing to Joseph who crossed the ball first time for Myles to shoot to make it 5 -2. Our final goal of the half again for Myles came from a mishit clearance from their goalie which Myles cooly slotted home 6 – 2.
The second half saw a change in goal for us with Joseph offering to go in net taking over from Theo, thanks to both.
Greens started the half as they finished the first half playing some lovely football, James took a goal kick straight up the wing to Theo who crossed to Myles for him to score his 5th of the game and to make it 7 – 2 to Greens. Our 8th goal came from a free kick which James pinged over the top of their defence and Myles again got his shot off which was saved by their goalie and Myles picked up the rebound to make it 8-2. Greens 9th came from some great play with James and Oliver intercanging in our half and both players advancing with the ball for Oliver’s shot being saved and James slotting home the rebound into the top right corner. Greens 10th came from a strong drive up the right wing by Oliver who crossed the ball for Myles to coolly finish for his 7th of the game, well done. Scorpions grabbed a late consolation goal for the game to finish 10 – 3 to Greens. Thanks to Lee for refereeing the game and controlling a sticky situation with the opposition’s supporters after 5 minutes.
Overall a great game to watch and the lads should be proud of their performance, great passing by all, Oliver and Myles playing the offside perfectly and Max and James playing through the wings. Solid performances from Will Tom and Damien and a big thanks to our stand in goalie’s Theo and Joseph.
