Elite 4 - 1 VUW
On a picturesque Saturday morning in stunning Johnsonville the Elite arrived raring to take on the Vic Uni Scarfies, yet again, for what feels like the 10th time this season. With the opposition being almost logistically organized as Tim trying to locate the post match beers, Greg decided to take us on a military operation warm-up, thanks Lieutenant Priscott, we were finally away after a slight self urination incident.
From the kick-off it was clear the boys were taking no prisoners and it is pretty safe to say we absolutely dominated them. Solid play in the middle from Lt. Priscott and Jade with some top class overlapping play from the full backs Timbo and Roge ensured we had the school children pegged back. After Shano gave us a much deserved lead with a poachers finish in the box and Macklemore (Nik) finally got a notch on the belt with a classy finish - dare I say goal of the season contender - outside of the box.
Also, cheers to Skipper Adam for going between the sticks. Good nudge. A resolute defense made for a boring half in goal.
Oranges - Further instructions barked by Lt. Priscott.
With Skip coming on and Harry, crap sorry mate Henry, donned the gloves, cheers mate. The Elite were unchanged. Yet again, great link up play in the middle and both Jay and Jase came on to provide extra fresh legs, especially some defensive steel from Jase! Turk and Blake were constant threats all game and a terrific run down the left saw Turk play in Skippy who made it 3-0 to the Elite! Now I think.. the young uns pulled one back after a goalmouth scramble. A call was made to put Angus up top, dangerous I say, and with 10 to go he somehow found the back of the net. 4-1. Final score. Special mention to Harry, crap Henry, who made a great save in the second half.
A big thanks to all the lads! For me my final game of the season, been an absolute pleasure fella's. Best of luck, do us proud. Damo, you better have my jacket before I leave.
Tough one, great game all round.
2 - Lt Priscott. Really impressive all game, solid tackles. Spread the ball really well, great game. Also brave trusting Harry with your car....
1 - Roger: Strong defensively, always an option going forward. Condolences for the election.
1 - Turk: Literally did everything right. A goal would have topped off an awesome shift - Sorry mate should've passed.
1 - Harry: Great first half defensively, up for headers and shut down their strikers. Big ups for chucking on the gloves and classy save.
