Under 9’s Maul The Lions

Under 9’s Maul The Lions

ECU  14-0  Stirling Lions – OSSF 10 North Orange – Sunday 29th April
ECU’s under 9’s continued their fine start to the season with a comprehensive victory over Stirling Lions in their OSSF North Orange clash. The under 9’s are the only junior ECU team playing up a year this season and will have to get used to playing against much bigger and more physical opponents. This they did against Stirling, standing up physically and playing some lovely team football, especially in the first half.

Having gone ahead through Regan Jordan, after a great move involving Joe Pollard and Harry Fletcher, they never looked back and raced to huge half time lead of 8-0. As with the under 12’s report, it’s impossible to describe all 14 goals but some of the finishes were of the highest order.

Scorers – Harry Fletcher 5, Regan Jordan 3, Daniel Faichney 2, Aiden Coyne 1, Reece Corrigan 1, Massimo Bresciani 1 and Blair McLatchie 1.

The boys who did not score all contributed to a great team effort, Joe Pollard, Ben Ford, Lewis Edwards, Matthew Dench and Euan Blair and even when Stirling broke away and threatened to open their account, the ECU boys worked hard and dealt with any sporadic away attacks.

The coach, Brian, will be happy with two wins from the first two matches and will hope to continue next week (Sun 6th May) when the boys host Wanneroo City in a 9.00am KO.
