The game starts so quick with the whistle going and a ball from Zac to Owen and a smooth pass to Harry sees an early goal for Colron. Harry continues his fast play and a ball to Zac sees it wide.

Owen’s turn now and a great ball in sees an epic save by the keeper, unlucky Owen as this was a great shot.

Harry plays a short ball to Zac who controls the play and waits for Harry to be down the line before chipping in a ball, Harry lighting feet makes a controlled and wonderful run up the line and a cross to Jake and bam a goal is scored.

Jake takes a corner and Harry’s efforts are saved and then Owen’s two attempts are blocked. Great determination boys.

Zac makes some formidable tackles to fight off any goal opportunities.

Jacob, Zac and a long ball connecting to Harry and Jake, then Jake to Owen.

Colron maintain possession for a while and pass well amongst themselves but do not move up field too much.

Owen demonstrates some excellent play to keep the ball and then releases the ball to Harry. Harry battles strong with the pressure on him but an exceptional turn sees the ball still in play.

Zac takes on a run from our goal taking on all the Sedgley players with some great turns and moves to outrun them, the final play is touched by a Sedgley player, and the ball is wide, but a great run Zac.

Tommy sets up an array of opportunities for his team, but the goalkeeper is battling strong for Sedley.

Corner takes a corner and Jakes’s effort is saved. Tommy’s corner to Zac sees the ball over. Zac I give you 100% effort today for trying for a goal.

The end of the game is near not before Zac tackles solid to get a pass to Cohen and a blockbuster of a run and its goal number 3- Hattrick (and a new contender for most goals of the session, The battle is on).
