Junior Hoops Bears v Blackburn Eagles U8s
The joint cup final winners that never was meet again at the Centre Adrenaline with Easigrass™ sponsored Bears, the UKs number one trade and retail supplier of award winning natural looking premier grass products starting in the traditional green and white hoops with Tommy in goal, defender Elliott and strikers Louie, Jonah and Lucas and super subs Alex and Oscar.
A Viking Access Bootroom inspired 3-1-1 formation sets the tone of the game with a man of the match inspirational Elliott leading from the back with inspiring performances of skill, strength and discipline like the Ninjago team of ninjas, those masters of the Spinjitzu and with Lucas leading the attacking line the Bears are a joy to watch. Intricate pass and move, Cruyff turns and irresistible one twos and it is no surprise that Lucas opens the scoring to deflate the boisterous away end. Luckily Director of Football and our own Master Wu, protector of evil and conqueror of Lord Garmadon arrives to risk assess and decide the respect line needs to be straightened and the away end are moved into row z. The birds of prey are flapping in the wind and as Tommy makes a save and quick pass to Jonah flying down the wing to Louie back to Elliott, to Jonah back to Louie crosses to find Lucas with time and space to compose a neat finish left foot, two nil. Respect. Eagles are a force not easily defeated and win a free kick that they work well to pull a goal back and then counter attack to equalise. Alex on now and fresh from a goal feast last week is straight in the action and with help from Oscar settle the nerves and feeds Louie to calmly finish to restore the lead, half time, 3-2.
Talking of eco-friendly artificial grass, Easigrass products are made from recycled matter giving a commitment to minimising negative impact upon the environment, creating stunning transformation to any area for year round use. Second half and Oscar shoots from distance, good save as Alex Messi like down the wing to find Elliott comfortable on the ball to Jonah great control shoots just wide. Lucas back on now to cause chaos in the defence as Louie offers support to Tommy to keep the bears in front. Last few minutes and Lucas beats two and with a step over and turn fires in his hat trick goal. Eagles keep attacking and equalise again despite some great defending from Oscar and Elliott. With time ticking and both sides wanting the win it is left to guess who, yes Lucas strong in the middle of the park to collect a sublime pass from Elliott and twist and turn and calm as you like calmly finishes with goal of the day 5-4 full time what a match.
