It was the Lions first game in two weeks, due to bad weather, but they continued where they left off with an encouraging start. As always spurned on by the excellent vocal support of coach Jeff Sutton, the players followed Stewart Wood’s master-minded game plan to the letter. Everything was going to plan, a steady performance coupled with a couple of break aways attacks almost leading to the Lions scoring against the run of play. The best Chance of the half falling to Richie Sutton whose low struck shot saw the opposing ‘keeper take in a short sharp breath as it sailed just wide of his left hand post. As the first half wore on there were more encouraging signs emerging from the play of the Lions. A number of excellent tackles from the tireless Ella Spears and Ryan Wood, with the defence of Owen Lloyd and Joshua Guest holding firm. Ashmore Park applied more pressure and took the lead from a first time shot off a Lions goal kick. The ball evading the chasing back Goal Keeper Aaron Clee and defender on the line Charlie Smith to nestle in the net. The second half was a much better affair for the Lions. Undeterred, the fierce Lions kept going and grew in confidence as they started to get more possession, forcing their opponents deeper into their own half. George Bicknell, on as a second half sub showed some excellent running which lead to a ball out wide to Joshua Guest, who turned the defender, burst into the penalty area and thrashed a shot passed the helpless ‘keeper. The Lions were in the ascendency. More attacks came and went, breaking down as Ashmore Park defended more and more desperately. Then an excellent challenge by Joshua Guest in his own penalty area lead to a break away. Charlie Smith and Connor Byrne combining again to win a corner. The last kick of the game saw George Bicknell throw his hands in the air in disbelief as his peach of a first time shot had some how been parried away by the ‘keeper. Without time for the re-take the final whistle blew. Well done to the lads and Ella. Keep it up.
