Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on November 3, 2008
St Martins - 1
EB Lions U9 Reds - 4
Every boy played with conviction and purpose and never allowed St Martin's to get into the game.
With only four minutes gone Dax Roe laid the ball back to Karl Shrowder who put the Lions ahead.
It was only another three minutes before Jack Quigley got the Lions' second from some good football involving Jack Nevitt and George Oliver. The rest of the first half saw the Lions pushing forward and when they needed some solid defending it was Freddie Mines with Nevitt and Oliver who did it.
Goalie Toby Higgs was confident and distributed the ball well.
The second half started with more of the same from the Lions, always busy and chasing every ball. After another good move involving Roe and Nevitt it was Quigley who put the ball in the back of the net for his second and the Lions were three up. Then after a quick break Lions were unlucky to concede a goal but it was only five minutes later that Roe got the Lions' fourth goal and the game finished with a well deserved 4-1 win.
Team: Roe, Quigley, Nevitt, Oliver, Barbato, Mines, Higgs, Giblin, Shrowder.
Hatfield Youth - 0
EB Lions U13 Girls - 6
This was a friendly match where both teams had players away on holiday and against an unknown opposition.
Lions travelled to Welwyn Garden City to play to enable both teams to gain more match time. Lions started strongly with two goals in the first eight minutes both from Eden Scott. The rest of the first half was controlled by the Lions with many goal scoring opportunities but the first half ended 2-0.
As this was a friendly we made many substitutions and players were tried in different positions. Four minutes into the second half Darcy Ashby scored with a long range shot and then after more pressure GoM Megan Viljoen scored twice in four minutes to make it five.
Katy Thiel scored her first goal for the Lions to give the Lions a well deserved 6-0 win.
In goal Nancy Oliver had another good match and kept a clean sheet.
Team: Oliver, Thiel, Scott, Ashby, Ferguson, Viljoen, Kirkwood, Byrne.
