Match Report

A combination of the Friday night training sessions and the Lions' increased experience saw them come through this game to achieve a great victory against the Shire Oak team which had defeated them in their first encounter earlier in the group.


A determined and skilful all-round display by the Lions saw them take the lead playing up the steep hill first half when Samuel managed to block the Shire Oak keeper's goal kick and turn it into the path of Jayan who fired into the net. The goal boosted the Lions' belief and they continued to press against a strong Shire Oak outfit. Luke was continuing his hard-tackling morning with another bulldog spirit display but as the Lions pressed for further goals they still had to keep it tight at the back and there were vital goal line clearances by both Will and Samuel. Noah was making tackle after tackle and really putting himself in where it hurts while Patrick was keen to keep a clean sheet in goal with some stunning saves from powerful shots by Shire Oak.


The second half saw the Lions take complete control of the game and Samuel extended the lead after breaking away, playing a one-two with Daniel to put him into the edge of the Shire Oak area where he blasted the ball past the 'keeper and into the net.


Shire Oak continued to look for a way back into the game but the Lions wrapped it up as they cleared a Shire Oak attack to put Daniel, Samuel and Will all clear through with Will racing into the Shire Oak area and firing home to clinch the game!


It was a wonderful showing from the Lions and further evidece of how much all of them are progressing and their all-round games improving. Well done, you Lions!
