U15 Lightning comfortably through to the third round of the Berks & Bucks County Cup with another 7 goal margin win
The boys had two great 20 minute spells of football in each half when they passed the ball around very nicely despite a bumpy pitch. 7 of their 8 goals came during these two quarters of the match. Jack W got a nice hat trick today, there was also a brace from Max and one each from George, Matt and Harry. The most eye catching goals were an overhead kick from Max on the edge of the 6 yard box and a Matt bullet header from a great corner from Jack W which looked like one they had worked on in training ............. but they hadn't!
During the two 20 minutes spells in each half the boys managed to play some really nice passing football and control the match despite a bobbly and slippy pitch and most of the goals came in these two spells. Marcus also did a great save towards the end of the first half to turn a goal bound shot from close range around the post to ensure the boys went in 3-0 at half time. The opposition keeper also did some great saves particularly with his legs to keep the score down in the first half. Although the opposition did manage to score early on in the second half to make it 3-1 the boys took control of the match shortly after that and four quick goals in under 10 minutes killed the match off and ensured they were safely through to the third round of the county cup. The boys still had time to add one more goal before the final whistle.
