ECU U12’s v Quinns FC 12th May

Mother’s Day brought Canning City to the Uni for an early 8.30am kick off. The sun was shining so conditions were ideal for football. A hat trick from Charlie in the first half followed by another from Dylan in the second made sure the game was never in any doubt. The score finished 11-1 with Ciaran and Ben adding one a piece while Trent scored two. There was also an own goal which was much appreciated by the boys.

After a tough road trip last week, the boys were more relaxed at home and got on the scoreboard early when Ciaran pinpointed a cross to Charlie who calmly tapped in 1-0. The chances kept coming and next Ollie has a shot saved. Ben was moving the ball around well combining with Jason and Ollie to win a corner. The next goal starts from a good pass down the right from Charlie, Ben makes an attacking run and crosses the ball to Ciaran who scores after a deflection 2-0.

Not content to just set up the goals, Ben this time shoots from the edge of the box into the bottom right corner to give the keeper no chance 3-0. Jason sets up Charlie for his second, his shot needing to avoid half the Canning team that was in the box 4-0. Dylan has a shot saved by the keeper late in the half. There is time for one more goal when Fraser is brought down after making a good run. Charlie makes no mistake from the spot and finishes the half with a hat trick 5-0.

The second half gets under way and it looks like more of the same. Ciaran is unlucky as his shot is well placed but the keeper positions himself well. Out of nowhere the visitors make a break and get a goal after a good run from there striker 5-1. That seemed to spur on the 12s and two quick goals from Trent put the score to 7-1. Both goals were from the right side after playing 1-2s with Jason and Charlie. Dylan and Ciaran make life hard for the Canning defence to win a corner. Trent crosses to the near post and the Canning defender heads the ball past his keeper 8-1.

Dylan gets two goals within a minute, the first a great strike from 20 yards and the second straight from the kick off as he chases the ball and gets rewarded 10-1. Dylan has time to score another goal after Ben’s shot is saved 11-1. A great win for the 12s to keep their 100% record. All that’s left is for the Mums to take down the Goals and then enjoy the rest of Mother’s Day.

Full time score ECU 3 – 1 Quinns.
