vs Glenmore Park
Opposition Score 4
Match Report Our march to the top two Bluies hoasted a very strong Glenmore Park on the return leg and found the going easier this time around. Last time we met resulted in a 7-3 loss and that game still played heavily on the minds of the young Bluies as the team took control of the match early and never let go. As anticapated the game ebbed and flowed from one end to the other with the back's having to work overtime to control the attacks that came at us from all directions but the general mood on the sideline was confident although the traditional heart flutters were a plenty. A gifted 11 metre was confortably taken by goalie Ben 4 from 3 to date and counting. Glenmore Park responded late in the game with two smartly taken goals against the run of play but looked to be tiring. Our bluies on the other hand looked fresh and ready to go and the 2-1 deficit was quickly erased as the midfield went int overdive and overawed the opposition. A quick early goal by Michael was the catalyst for the the team and the wings and backs fired up and contained the game in a compressed midfield. Notably the general got ontop of his troops and the wingers of Jordan and Hanna supported the backs and harrassed the midfield throughout the game allowing the ball to be recycled efficiently to the strikers and whilst not getting on the boards themselves provided plenty of time for the midfielders. More impressive was Bens midfield assault and Michael being on fire. Assisted by Wade these three obliterated the oppositions mid field and ran through almost at will. Combiinations clicked into gear and Michael ran in another goal followed by Ben and another two by Michael. Keep bringing those shoes Mick, they score goals. Glenmore park scored two late goals to make the score more respectible but in truth Glenmore Park ran into a red hot Bluies outfit who all lifted to the occasion. Whilst Glenmore pushed hard the game didnt look in doubt as each and every player put in a 100% effort and the puffing and panting on the sideline was testemony to their effort. Apart from goal scorers most impressive were Lauren, Brenda, Hanna & Tim not to underscore the efforth of the rest of the team. Ball control was excellent, movement was clean and crisp and options chosen were mostly correct ones due to the availability of time on the ball as a result. In all a great turn around from our mid season slumber and hopefully this is a sign the team will peak for finals time. Training is paying dividends as the whole team is now backing each other up and playing as solid unit.
