A massive shift from the boys today to bring home the bacon in a 4-2 win against a decent Junction Elite side. The boys started a little slow with Junction putting on some early pressure but the wall Murphy in the net wasn’t shaken.
At the back some absolutely solid performances from the Powell duo, Seatho, and Wright. The boys took an early lead with a calm composed finish from TK and a second shortly after a neat header from Shelley to see us lead by 2 into the second half. Jackson Ray with a sensational goal line clearance to keep the sheet clean going into halftime. The second half the boys were out for blood and David Cecil scored a quick third followed by a 4th by JC.
Howie and Alder looked mustard and solid in the middle dictating the tempo before a lethal swipe of the leg from Ken Dog to give them a Penalty and a goal on the sheet.
Unfortunately for us, another handball was given and the junction scored a second penalty. The boys didn’t concede off open play today and some serious performances all around the park.
