- Flixton Pumas v U11 Tornadoes 17.09.16
The team had to give 110% this week to compete with strong opposition and with goals galore, from both sides it made for an exciting game. With Bradley scoring two goals in the first half, Jack taking and scoring from a superb 30 yard free kick, put the team on a high.
The opposition put up an excellent battle and continued to place our defence; Raphael, Harley, Luke and Jack under increased pressure, however, they stood strong after a wave and wave of attacks, pushing back with some great clearances. Yet with the pressure, the whole team worked hard, including Lewis who came out and challenged the attacking players to reduce the number of chances the ball had to hit the back of the net, resulting in the first half ending almost level.
In the second half Flixton started brightly levelling the score line, but this did not stop our midfield from working tirelessly to win the ball back with Theo, Adam and Oliver getting time on the ball and making a positive difference to the score line. With the running and passing from them all, resulted in Theo increasing the score line further. The two forwards, Charlie and Bradley played effortlessly, with Charlie getting into positions that supported his team mates in midfield but also Bradley up front that made him dangerous to the opposing defence.
With five minutes to go Adam won a penalty, Bradley took the opportunity to finish off on a hat trick, securing the win for the team.
There was a superb all round performance from every player on the team making Man of the Match an almost impossible decision; however, with a hat trick and the tireless running it went to Bradley Oliver. It was a brilliant game, with a great amount of effort, well done.
