Round 15- Sunday  4th September – ECU 1   3 Subiaco

ECU started brightly against Subiaco and took the lead in the 9th minute. Lennon taking possession on the right hand side of midfield, midway inside the Subiaco half. His cross field ball to Charlie was met first time by the striker and a looping shot from 15 yards had the Subiaco keeper beaten.

Ollie on the left and Lennon on the right created chances for Morgan and Ciaran. Strong defensive displays from both teams were cancelling out any attacking moves in the final third.

Subiaco scored against the run of play with a fine volley from 15 yards giving Etienne no chance as it hit the top corner.

Charlie, Harry and Lennon made way for Trent, Ben and Harry on 16 minutes.

The Subiaco number 10 was causing a few problems but Aaron was more than up for the challenge. With Ollie on the left and Lennon on the right the build up play looked promising for ECU.No further goals ensuring the first half finished all square.

HT. ECU 1   1 Subiaco

The second half started with Evan in goals, Aaron at centre back and Etienne switching to the left hand side of midfield.

Morgan’s domination in the centre of midfield continued, slicing the defence open 3 minutes in to send Ben clear. Ben unselfishly played in Ciaran for a one on one with the keeper but the Subi keeper came out on top with a good block.

Trent then started the first of many attacking moves down the right flank ending with a superb ball to the back post which Ciaran couldn’t quite get a touch on.

Subiaco took the lead 8 minutes into the second half.

Charlie, Harry and Lennon made an entrance midway through the second half. Lennon’s slide- rule pass to Ben allowed him a strike on goals, a fine effort rebounding off the crossbar to Etienne whose follow up was blocked for an ECU corner.

The rain increased as the second half drew to close, but you couldn’t dampen the ECU spirit.Morgan led by example with a number of strikes on goal.

Subiaco put the result beyond doubt in the final minute to run out 3-1 winners.

FT: ECU 1   3 Subiaco
