Pocklington U13s 6 - 0 Haxby Town U13s

01 Dec 2013

Fresh from making the semi finals of the FA cup Pock faced another tough league game against Haxby. They came up into Div 1 with us last year and were one of the only teams to beat us in the league last year.

Again we seemed up for a good game and it was good to see Louis on form again and the defence holding a good line led by Harry. Harry and Will seemed to have formed a good understanding at centre halves and there was very little getting past them today. When needed Louis moved off his line and intercepted - once accidentally rebounding the ball off Harry in his efforts to clear. 

The game started at a good pace and within 4 minutes Sam had broken the deadlock with a well taken goal from close range. Apart from a bit of pressure in the next 10 mins from Haxby the traffic was one way, Sam completed his hat trick after 18 mins with assists from Alex and Tom and Sam returned the favour with a decent pass across the box to set Tom up for his first of the match. We went into half time 4 nil up and the second half saw the introduction of Matty on the left wing, and Jonny into defence. Sam soon had his 4th goal after 40 mins and was subbed for a well earned rest giving Jack a spell up front for the rest of the match. The traffic remained one way with Pocklington creating lots of chances, many of which fell to Tom, who scored his second Goal at 69 mins.

There were lots of contenders for man of the match today, Louis kept another clean sheet, James Anderson again worked hard down the right side and Alex was in amongst it all the time, even though not on the score sheet he was credited with 3 assists in the game. However (at the risk of being accused of nepotism) I have awarded it this week to Sam for his persistence in running down every ball and making the keeper work that little bit harder. Next week Hamilton Panthers away which on paper should prove to be a tougher game.
