First Half

At the new venue, the starting team is Zac, Harry, Cohen, Jacob, and Tommy. The weather does not reflect the boys spirits – they are excited and ready to play. On the ball from the minute the whistle goes and it’s not long before Harry makes a fantastic run and boom it is in the goal!

Zac not long after intercepts a ball and a short run forward sees a cross to Cohen, his lightning feet take him forward and it is another goal!

Zac makes another clean tackle and a move to Tommy sees Tommy make good ground up the field and slides the ball to Cohen for another superb finish.

Zac started play again with a throw in which landed well for Harry, who made a quick pass back to Zac and another ball into Cohen this one was forced out for a corner.

A bit of pressure for the boys now but Zac and Cohen stood strong with the tackles and forced balls off the opposition.

Short pressure continues and Tommy is there to defend the play in the box, he fights strong and clears the ball down the wing (Excellent play Tommy, the ball was very close to a goal) Tommy races to get the ball he clears and achieves his plan, a smooth pass sees Harry with the ball but it’s forced out.

Zac takes a throw in and Tommy chips the ball and turns to goal, the ball is intercepted, and Zac makes a clearance.

Another throw in sees Tommy chase the ball down and a pass to Harry and then to Cohen, sees the ball wide. (Unlucky). Play repeats itself and it is wide again.

Half Time

A hand ball from the start sees Jake take a free kick, an attempt on goal sees a deflection and Harry tries the rebound but it is wide.

The start of a flurry of corners for Harry and when you think his corners are amazing, he takes another and it’s even better. Phenomenal corners, Harry!

Not long before the ball is down for a throw in and Jake long throw sees the ball off an FC premier player and out for a corner.

First Half

The report writing is a little delayed after not being able to figure out how to get to watch the game, cages everywhere.

It is still 0-0 when I start to watch (Thanks Andy). The team starts Zac, Tommy, Harry, Cohen and Jacob.

The game continues with an array of throw ins from Zac to Cohen, Cohen pass hits off a Raider and then back to a throw in from Zac and a pass from Cohen.

The game sees pressure felt by both teams and the ball spends more time off the pitch then on it. Zac throw in, to Cohen connects to Harry and it’s out again.

This time the throw ins are finally making their way up the field and a throw in from Zac meets Tommy and a great turn throws the defender, and a shot is saved, deflected to Cohen and another save.

Tommy fights strong and makes a brave tackle, Tommy gets the ball to Cohen, Cohen with some good footwork moves the ball to Harry and a strike and it is just wide.

Half Time.

Second Half

The second sees Zac, Jake, Tyler, Owen and Jacob.

Owen starts off the game at the whistle and makes a pass back to Zac, who attempts a shot on target, it doesn’t quite get through but does make its way to Owen who battles in the box for a short time.

The ball then smashed straight back up the field and an excellent save by Jacob to keep his clean sheet.

Jacob passes to Jake quickly and Jake makes a great run and battle and then another run, and the ball is saved. Jake races back up field to help in defence position.

Owen receives a corner ball and a shot on target is just wide. Jake regains possession and gets to Tyler in the box, Tyler battles hard but to many Raiders in his way.

Just like the first half throw ins galore, Jake gets to Tyler again who battles to maintain the ball for a while, passes back to Jake but its intercepted, this doesn’t faze Jake and he completes a robust tackle. Before taking on a short run and is blocked.

Raiders get a throw in and Owen has his eye on the ball and it is intercepted by him and a pass to Tyler in the box, Tyler looks for space and passes back to Jake who makes a move on target and it is saved.

Zac who has been waiting in defence for a while (Well done the rest of the team for keeping the ball their half for most of this half), He tackles for a ball and then sees the space and runs, a couple of turns to trick the team gets the ball on target but its saved.

The ball is back in play quick, but Jakes there to stop the ball and a long ball to Harry sees another ball wide.
An array of throw ins continues.

Jake shows some great footwork now and its wide of goal.

Finally, the play comes together, and Jake makes a move and passes to Harry and Harry powers the ball through for a well-deserved goal.
