Lions – 6 – 9 Football Futures (29/10/13)

On a wet and soggy day the Lions performed well.  Football Futures were on the attack as soon as the game started but Ethan made some tremendous saves.  Throw in from Jamie E and Lions took the lead by Carter only 5 minutes into the game.  Straight away FF came back and scored 1-1.  A nippy run down the line from James to get into position and a cross from Carter and James made the score line 2-1.  Well matched play from both sides and FF went 2-2 and 2-3 into the lead within minutes.  All these goals were scored inside the first 11 minutes of the game.  Good exciting football to watch.  Ethan made some tremendous saves when FF were on the attack and Owen cleared one particular challenge off the line.  2-4 and 2-5 but Carter once again managed a speedy run all the way down the pitch making the scoreline 3-5.  Carter seems to be striving for hat-tricks during these games and this week he did it 4-5.  FF played lots of attacking football and our defence made to stave off some of the shots on goal but 2 consecutive goals made the score line 4-7 to FF at half time.  Thanks to Rhonda for providing warm drinks before the game and at half time to keep parents going.

Heavy rain in the second half hindered the play and Carter was bought down in the penalty area, no penalty given by the referee.  The played carried on with the boys and spectators getting wetter and wetter but still a great game to watch.  David this time was fouled and was given a penalty.  He stepped up and ‘Goal’ 5-7.  Almost as soon as the ball was back in play Carter shot and we were catching FF up 6-7.  FF not to be outdone ran though the defence 6-8.  The team made a good effort and lots of shots on goal and fantastic saves by Ethan.  James was given a kick but couldn’t find the goal in this instance.  Full time looming and FF made the closing score 6-9.  We as supporters are watching some fantastic entertaining games at the moment lads, thanks so much.  Well done.
