This tie ended as one of the most satisfying games of mini soccer we have witnessed since the Jags conception and there was not a goal scored, how far this squad has come in a short time is very satisfying for all concerned!

Four Oaks Pumas league form coming into the game was solid and they must have fancied their chances with the amount of goals they have scored and the small amount they have conceded but immediately from the kick off the Jags let the Pumas know they were in for a tough time.

Choosing to use the home pitch slope advantage for the first half the Jags put together a wave of attacks that left the Pumas defence in a daze. Man of the match Billy Hammond broke down all of Four Oaks attempts to attack and used the ball wisely getting it wide to Sam New and Brandon Garrett who both ran at the Pumas defence creating numerous chances. The Jags have only one problem at the moment, finishing those chances and as half time approached total dominance in the first twenty minutes had failed to see the game put out of reach. There is a real pattern this season of wasted chances and possession, in this tough tough division goals are at a premium and boys will have to learn to take advantage when they are in the ascendancy, we are sure this will come in time!

The second half saw Four Oaks come back into the game now using the slope to their advantage but the well organised defence of Ollie Cooper and Euan Aston aided by Hammond saw all of Pumas attacks come to nothing. Four Oaks looked dangerous from well drilled corners and it was their only real opportunity to steal the points but solid assured keeping from Josh Price who commanded his area well kept them a bay.

Forty minutes of ‘end to end’ football played in a great spirit deserved some goals, both sets of players should be really proud, the sides will not only meet again in the league but also the cup competition, no doubt those remaining fixtures will be just as fierce!
