This week the team was lead out by Victor. After a very positive start to the game and some good attacking play by Lucas, Oliver and Oscar somehow we found ourselves 2-0 down, and after further pressure but some great last ditch tackles from Riley at the back, Oscar took the ball down the line avoiding a few tackles and after the ball cannoned off a few defenders it fell kindly to Lucas who put the ball away to go into the first quarter 2-1 down.
The boys then started the 2nd quarter the same as the first on top and after Sonny was very unlucky as he hit the post he then put in one of his surging dribbles and this time put the ball away well to equalise. This quarter was back and forth with this time Victor hitting the post, and some good pressure and shots from Damon made the Rosacre keeper pull off some last ditch saves. We went in 3-2 down at Half time.
The third quarter Roseacre started strong and after getting a dubious penalty from the ref Sonny pulled off a great save to keep the score at 4-2, from the resulting corner Riley made a great block on the line, Oliver collected the ball in his own area and dribbled the full length before being chopped down just outside the area. From the resulting free kick Oliver tricked Roseacre and passed it into Oscar who was very unlucky not to get on the scoresheet due to a good save. Lucas tested the keeper a few times who held strong. The third quarter ended 5-2
The 4th quarter the boys carried on digging in and we scored probably our best team goal so far in the teams journey. Oliver played the ball out his area to Victor who the took the ball out and passed out wide to Arlo who ran up the wing Ronaldo like and as he pulled the last defender out he looked up passed across to Sonny who was open to tap in past the keeper. It was a great team goal. After a injury break Liam had a quick chat with Sonny to go get a hattrick and next attack Damon won the ball in midfield played Arlo in who again got another assist as Sonny scored for his hattrick and did a celebration dance!
A battling display and a big improvement, however a score line that didn’t tell the true story a 8-4 win for the Roseacre Raiders.
MAN OF THE MATCH – ARLO for is 2 Assists and some great tackles. Never stopped running.
Goals: Sonny 3 , Lucas 1
