The Lions began this game extremely well. Ella Spiers, Ryan Wood, Connor Byrne and Ritchie Sutton combined to take the shot count to 6 with the game barely a few minutes old. Owen Lloyd and Joshua Guest marshalling the back line without too much threat showed willingness to come forward and support the attacks. The Lions seemed to be met by a line of bodies each time they ventured into the oppositions half. However, the pressure finally paid dividends when a corner was cleared to Joshua Guest who breezed into the penalty area and coolly shot into the bottom corner of the net. Almost immediately another ball into the area found Ryan Wood who nudged the ball past the ‘keeper. Self belief spread through the whole team and a further half a dozen or so attempts came and went before Ella Spiers scored with a close range shot after good work by Ritchie Sutton and Charlie Smith. George Bicknell saw a shot a deflected after some good work, Ella Spiers again went close after a neat ball from the busy Ritchie Sutton and some neat passes ended with Charlie Smith having a shot well saved. The opposition came forward very rarely but when they did some excellent tackling by Owen Lloyd broke down any attacks before they reached Lions ‘Keeper Aaron Clee, who was a spectator for most of the game. The Lions showed some great ‘pass and move’ play in the second half and another great move involving Ryan Wood, Charlie Smith and Ritchie Sutton ended with a goal from the tireless Ella Spiers. Charlie Smith then capped a good performance as a second half sub with a goal. It started with a superb run from his own half into the opposition’s penalty area and ended with a fine low shot into the bottom corner. A big well done to the team.
