Rainford Rangers Real U12s v Appleton Boys South
By Phil Curran
Another comfortable victory
Real came away again with a comfortable victory with 5 goals in each half to come away with a 10 nil victory. In the first half, Real dominated with Fin and Alfie dominating midfield and creating chance after chance for the forwards. Mikes got the first after a fantastic cross from the right by Max , taking the keeper out of it and allowing Mikey to volley home unopposed at the back post. The second arrived quickly from an excellent corner by Louie with Fin heading unopposed and scored via a deflection.
George was substituted after getting the ball full in his face and cutting his lip with Clay coming on after 10 mins. Further goals followed from Louie 2 and Clay. Any attacks that Appleton had were snuffed out by Sam and Jonesy with Will in goal always offering support to distribute the ball out. At half time it was 5 nil and should have been more with some more clinical finishing and some good goalkeeping from the Appleton Keeper.
The 2nd half was much the same, with changes made, Phil, Ethan and George came on for Jonesy, Mikey and Louie. The half started as the first finished with Real making break after break down the wings via Max and Ethan. Goals came from Clay, Cael, George, Alfie and Ethan with a thundering finish off the underside of the bar. Will came out to smother any Appleton attacks and took a few knocks for his troubles. Call an and Phil looked solid at the back and distributed the ball well from the back. The game eventually finished 10 nil.
Fin was man of the match.
