Under 12’s Green League – Sunday 8th May – Ellenbrook  0-6  ECU

The ECU under 11’s team were looking to continue their good form with a tricky away game at Ellenbrook. I’m not sure if the early kick off was a factor but the away side started slowly and should have been behind after just 30 seconds. Firstly, Kyle McDonald made a good save from an Ellenbrook forward, the rebound was rolling towards the ECU goal when Oliver Ford made a desperate goal line clearance. The shock seemed to wake up the away team as they soon settled down and started to create some half chances.

ECU went in front after 10 minutes when Harley Curran swung over a good corner and Luke Antonio stooped to head home his first goal for the club. It was soon 2-0 when Ben Bates went past a defender and crossed for Harley to finish into the corner. Ellenbrook had a couple of quick forwards and were causing some issues for ECU on the break and created some good opportunities, which came to nothing. It was 3-0 just before half time when Harley finished well after a good free kick by Ethen Kerridge.

Harley soon completed a deserved hat trick, to make the score 4-0 to the visitors when he converted a penalty after he, himself, had been fouled when in a good position to score. Goal number five came when James Lawless broke away and shot and the rebound was confidently put away by Declan Hudson, who like Luke earlier, also scored his his first goal for the club. Declan then rounded off a good display when he returned the favour by putting James through with a brilliant pass for James to finish to make the score 6-0.

This was another good display by the boys and hopefully they should have some confidence going into a tough home game against Perth next Sunday. Like last week, ECU were playing against a bigger, more physical side but they battled well at the start of the match, when they had to and eventually their better footballing skills began to show.
