EB Lions U13 Girls - 3
Sacred Heart - 1
Another great team performance, right from the start the Lions were in control. Oliver was back in goal from a recent injury and was back to her confident self and coped well with anything that came her way.
In defence Thiel and Scott were never under pressure and pushed forward well to help keep the pressure on Sacred Heart.
It was on 12 minutes after a great move from the Lions that French (who was GoM) put the Lions ahead.
With Ashby and Hudson dominating midfield it was only a matter of time before The Lions scored again and after some passing again it was French who scored from a really acute angle.
Just before half time the Lions were unlucky to concede a scrappy goal and at half time it was 2-1.
Three minutes into the second half after a great run French scored again to complete a first class hat trick.
The Lions created many more chances with Viljoen and Byrne up front always looking dangerous and only some good goalkeeping by Sacred Heart kept the score down.
Another quality display from the Lions. Team: Oliver, Thiel, Scott, Ashby, French, Viljoen, Hudson, Byrne.
EB Lions U9 Reds - 1
Bushmead Rovers - 0
A really close match between two top teams, with both sides moving the ball well and creating goal scoring opportunities. In goal Higgs pulled off some great saves while in defence Luff and Christie looked solid and coped well with anything that came their way. At half time the score was 0-0.
The second half started with Oliver and Nevitt continuing to control midfield it was always going to take something special to split the two teams.
Then after 34 minutes Roe slipped a great ball through to Quigley who took his chance well to score an excellent goal.
This game showed again that there is very little difference between the top teams and was another entertaining, end to end match. Well done both teams.
Team: Roe, Quigley, Oliver, Nevitt, Higgs, Luff, Christie.
