ECU under 12’s beat Perth SC

Posted on May 21, 2011 in 'Juniors 2011'

15th May 2011. ECU U12’s V Perth SC

ECU U12’s went into the game undefeated, and having not conceded a goal this season. This was expected to be one of the tougher games. ECU struggled to settle down into the game from the start, while having most of the possession the ball was given away far to easily. ECU opened the score early in the game with a good build up to a well finished goal By Sam Pollard. Perth soon equalised  with a well taken goal. The second half started with Perth scoring an excellent goal on the brake to put them in the lead. ECU then stepped it up a gear and won a penalty which was finished off brilliantly by Declan Hughes. With Perth still looking dangerous on the brake the boys had to stay tight in defence. ECU then started to put some nice moves together which created more chances with Michel Kirkby scoring an excellent left footed strike to put ECU back in front. The game was then finished off with a well weighted through ball from Luke Rhodes which was tucked away nicely by Sam Fitzsimmons.

ECU showed great spirit in their toughest game yet.

Result: ECU 4 Perth SC 2
