Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions
Posted on September 28, 2009
Langford U12 - 7
EB Lions U12 - 1
Strikes from James Hurley and Chris McGee lent promise to the initial phases of this encounter but it was Langford who scored first, managing to poke through the otherwise rigid defence of Adam Bradley, Tom Horner, Jake Draper, Ben Roberts and MOM Aarin Johnson.
They would land second before the close of the half, but James Hurley gave the visitors hope, heading in with minutes left.
Keeper Dan Kennell pulled off some impressive saves, drawing applause from supporters on both sides.
Once again though Lions' worrying propensity for easing off when behind was in evidence, and Langford quickly built up an unassailable lead in the second. Even so there was good work from midfielders Sean Woodhouse, Dominic Ryan and Mason Ashby, with front men Will Juster and Aaron Gauntlett maintaining a goal threat.
EB Lions U14 Girls - 5
Westoning FC - 0
After 23 minutes French took her chance well after some good link play with Elsa Kirkwood and the Lions were one up. Only three minutes later, Megan Viljoen went on another strong run and after beating three players slotted the ball in. The defence of Katy Thiel, Emily Hodson and Eden Scott coped easily with everything that came into the Lions half. At half time it was 2-0 to EB Lions.
The second half started of the same as the first had finished with the Lions attacking strongly and with only a minute gone French got her second after a good through ball from Ashby. A further five minutes saw GOM French score her third with a great header from a corner to complete a great hat trick. Then with only a minute remaining Ashby scored a fantastic goal with an overhead kick and the birthday girl finished off a great match. Team: Oliver, Thiel, Hodson, Scott, Ashby, French, Edwards, Ferguson, Viljoen, Kirkwood, Byrne. Goals: French 3, Ashby, Viljoen.
