A fantastic performance from the Belconnen team, who controlled the game from start to finish against Tigers FC. Riley, Sam and Noah were dominant in the midfield and along with Dylan opened up the Tigers time and time again. Early in the first half James converted the pressure with a tap-in on the back post from Dylan’s entry, 1-0.
Sam then made space for Odhran who met his cross with a great volley only to bring out an amazing save from their goalkeeper. With Gabe and Ryan assured in defence, Belconnen dominated possession, however it was only was 1-0 at half time.
Previous games had seen a drop off in concentration, however the boys kept up the tempo and were rewarded when James took the ball inside the box and played the ball back across the goals for a two-nil lead.
Rohan was making nice runs off the ball and was rewarded with a Riley pass. He played it into the box and Dylan was tackled from behind and the referee pointed to the spot. With James on a hat-trick it was an easy decision to make and he slotted the ball into the top of the net to prevent an awkward car trip home with his coach.
The boys maintained their high standards and Noah, who had had some lovely touches, took a nice cross from Sam and picked out the top left hand corner of the net to round out the scoring four – nil. Great games from BUDS players Gabe, Ethan and Ben and a clean sheet to Matt had the Coach smiling.
