We played host to Bradford Park Ave Dragons on Sunday. The following was the squad for the game:-
Bradford kicked off but we soon won the ball back and went on the offensive. First Jack shot just wide and then Joseph’s shot was well held by the keeper. From our first corner, Jack put in a great ball that just needed a touch from Joseph or Felix which would have given us the lead. From another great Jack corner Nathan’s flick went just wide. We then took the lead. From a good tackle by Freddie, the ball was played forward by Felix to Joseph. Jospeh then found Nathan on the right and from Nathan’s cross come shot the ball flew into the corner of th net despite the keeper getting a touch. 1-0
Minutes later it should have been 2. From another Jack corner the ball found Evan whose shot was brilliantly kept out of the net by the keeper. However minutes later it was 2-0. From a good run by Luke, he found Jack who played a nice ball for Joseph. Joseph beat a man before finding the corner of the net. 2-0
Back cam BPA with a sustained period of pressure. First Max made a good block as the attackers shot was goal bound and then a penalty was awarded after the ball struck Max’s hand in the area. Marcus however made a fantatstic save from a well struck penalty to maintain our 2 goal lead. Seconds before half time, Marcus made another great save to deny BPA a goal. H/T 2-0
We began the second half cautiously passing the ball around well. From a great flowing move started by Luke there was some great interplay between Joseph and Jack before Jack played a great ball into the box that was met by Evan whose neat finish made it 3-0. What a celebration by Evan!!!
On virtually our next attack we scored again. From a nice ball by Nathan, Jack controlled the ball before being fouled. Up stepped Freddie with the free kick firing into the top corner of the net. 4-0. Back came BPA but Max made a great tackle to deny the attacker a shot on goal.
As we entered the last 10 minutes we scored again. This time Jack’s shot was blocked. Felix picked up the ball and played an unselfish ball to Joseph who shot home. 5-0.
Nathan got his second goal and our 6th a few minutes later. Max went on a marauding run before finding Felix. Felix’s shot was blocked but fell to Nathan who fired home. 6-0.
The final whistle went with BPA on the attack winning two successive corners. Credit to the opposition pushing us hard until the final whistle.
Another great performance by the boys with our passing again excellent.
