Goals ga­lore for dom­i­nant Den­mark

Albany Extra - - Sport -

Af­ter their 2-2 draw in the open­ing game of the sea­son an­other close en­counter was ex­pected be­tween Den­mark and Gram­mar in the Al­bany Ju­nior Soc­cer As­so­ci­a­tion un­der-16 com­pe­ti­tion last Satur­day.

This time the game was played in Den­mark and soon af­ter it be­gun, Gram­mar hit the front when Parker Win­gard opened the scor­ing but that was as good as it got for his side.

Den­mark im­me­di­ately worked hard to close Win­gard out of the game and by not al­low­ing him any room to move.

It gave the Den­mark de­fence a bit of breath­ing room and the team were able to get back in the game soon af­ter with a strike through Andy Powys.

Ebony Thomp­son then put Den­mark in front and Drew Thomp­son scored an­other to take Den­mark into half-time 3-1 ahead.

A de­ci­sion was then made to take Davis Milne out of goal for Den­mark for the sec­ond half and it worked as he scored a brace in the sec­ond half.

An­other strike by Andy Powys en­sured Den­mark earned a con­vinc­ing 6-1 win.

The win helps Den­mark leapfrog Gram­mar on the ta­ble to third place be­hind Roy­als and Stir­ling Rangers.

Stir­ling Rangers were made to work hard for their win against John Calvin as they scored two goals in the first half and one in the sec­ond for a solid 3-0 win.

Roy­als were far too strong for Rovers in the first half of their game scor­ing six goals to Rovers none.

Rovers were much im­proved in the sec­ond half and although they de­nied Roy­als adding to their to­tal, they weren’t able to threaten and get on the score sheet them­selves.

Gram­mar Blue played John Calvin in the un­der-12s and were out to keep their per­fect record in­tact.

Gram­mar were the dom­i­nant team in the first half and were knock­ing the ball around nicely on the nine-a-side fields.

They opened the scor­ing from beau­ti­ful cross into the box that was met by Sam Jef­fery who con­trolled the ball and slot­ted home.

John Calvin per­se­vered and had a slice of good for­tune when a fan­tas­tic strike was met with an equally good save from the Gram­mar keeper.

The keeper then mis­han­dled the ball and the ball slipped into his own net to gift John Calvin an equaliser.

Gram­mar grew in con­fi­dence in the sec­ond half as they fin­ished 4-1 win­ners to re­main on top of the ta­ble.

Mt Barker kept the pres­sure on Gram­mar Blue when they beat Gram­mar Red com­fort­ably 12-0, while Yakamia, Bethel and Mt Lock­yer all won to re­main only a win away from sec­ond-placed Mt Barker but all three have a game in hand.
