Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on November 10, 2008
EB Lions U9 Reds - 4
AFC Luton - 1
What a great match, the conditions were wet and slippery but this did not stop the Lions putting on a great display in this league cup quarter final. After 5 minutes Dax Roe took his chance well to go one up.
The Lions were in control of the game, but on 11 minutes against the run of play AFC Luton scored an equaliser. It was only two minutes later that Roe got his second. The Lions continued to dominate the match and then a minute before half time Roe got his third for a great hat trick.
After the half time substitutions it was only two minutes before the Lions got their fourth from Jack Quigley and only some good saves from the AFC Luton keeper meant the match ended 4-1 to the Lions. This was a strong team performance in a high tempo match with all the players giving their best.
Team: Roe, Quigley, Nevitt, Oliver, Barbato, Mines, Higgs, Giblin, Shrowder.
EB Lions U13 Girls - 2
Cranfield - 0
This was another great match for the Lions, a game that they dominated from start to finish.
Goalie Nancy Oliver was commanding and kept another clean sheet. In defence Katy Thiel and Eden Scott coped with anything that came their way from Cranfield; the midfield was dominated by Darcy Ashby, Devon Ferguson (who as GoM), Emily Hudson and Bethan Woolsley; up front Hattie French, Megan Viljoen, Elsa Kirkwood and Shannon Byrne always looked dangerous.
On 27 minutes French scored for the Lions after a great move by Ashby and Hudson and it was 1-0 at half time. The Lions started the second half strongly and could have gone further ahead many times but it was with two minutes left that Ferguson scored a well deserved second goal and the match finished 2-0 to the Lions. This was a well deserved win over a team that finished runners up last season. Lions were well organised and determined.
Team: Oliver, Thiel, Scott, Ashby, Ferguson; Hudson; Woolsey, French, Vjljoen, Kirkwood.
