On a lovely morning for football we entertained Long Lee B at Queensway School.
The following was the squad for the match:-
We started the match on the offensive and went close through a Felix effort in the second minute. We were moving the ball around well and it was no surprise when we took the lead through a Freddie effort. Minutes later Geno reacted quickest to a cross by Jack to shoot home. Shortly after Jacob followed up after a good initial save by the keeper to make it 3. Geno got his second following a good passing move with Geno placing a good shot into the corner of the net. Joseph then got onto the score sheet after playing a one two with Jack before slotting the ball past the keeper. Jack then added a sixth following a nice dribble and cool finish. With Felix replacing Nathan in goal, the latter scored shortly after. Nathan reacted quickest to a loose ball to fire home. As half time approached Joseph scored his second following good play by Jacob and Felix. Luke then made a great interception as Long Lee broke with menace, finding Jack whose shot hit the post. H/T 8-0
Early in the second half Jacob scored his second reacting quickest to a deflected Freddie shot in the area. Jack followed Jacob in getting a second with a neat finish following good work by Nathan. Luke then got a good goal by beating two defenders before shooting into the corner of the net. Then followed the goal of the game by Andrew. From a great cross by Nathan, Andrew met the ball on the volley with his left foot and the ball flew into the top corner of the net. Freddie then scored a quick fire double to give him a hat trick. Both goals were good finishes. Jack completed his hat trick , being in the right place to tuck in Luke’s cross shot. Geno then completed his hat trick with a nicely placed shot.
Credit to Long Lee, they kept battling away and nearly got a consolation goal but for a great last gasp tackle by Nathan. Moments later Jack made a timely intervention just as the attacker was about to shoot.
Back we came and Freddie completed the scoring and his fourth goal with a fine finish to a flowing move. The last action saw Long Lee hit the post with the follow up being cleared off the line.
Full time 18-0
A fantastic performance by the boys with some great play and some clinical finishing.
