U10s just keep on scoring goals

PUBLISHED: 13:43 08 April 2011

The Warriors had two comfortable victories in their games at Ottery St Mary, winning 8-0 and 9 -1.

Against Ottery Barrellers, Sidmouth were committed and confident. By half-time Louis Spalding had already scored a hat-trick, while Matt Salter and James Emmett both scored crackers from distance. An own goal meant a 6-0 half-time score. After three half-time substitutions, the team took their time to find their rhythm. Gradually they piled more and more pressure on the Ottery defence and two further goals from Jay Harris and Emmett took the score to eight. Ollie Truman made an assured debut in defence while James Emmett was Man of the Match.

In the second game, against Ottery Cannons the Warriors were totally dominant and scored nine goals through Spalding (2), Harris (2), Jack Miller (2), Emmett, Ben Plowden and Lucas Richardson. If truth be told, a few more goals should have been added, but the team lost their shape as all the players were trying to get themselves in a position to score. Ottery scored a late consolation which led to a huge celebration from the home supporters. Ollie Truman was the Warrior’s Man of the Match for another assured display.

The Raiders had a massive 13-0 win against Ottery Cannons with Luke Spiller and Louis Adey scoring a hat-trick each, Jacob Rice and Tomas Moore, two each and George Lowe, Ben Goodier and Oran Bramble one each.

Highlights of the game were the boys’ great ball control with strong passes being made, moving the defenders forward and bringing the goalie out.

In the second game , Sidmouth beat Ottery Barrelers 6-0 with a hat-trick from Thomas Moore and a goal each from Ben Goodier, Jacob Rice, Louis Adey.

This was against a stronger team and the defence had to work hard.

Jed de Meyier and Thomas Blackham played well and, by half time, Sidmouth were 2-0 up. After the break, Raiders took control of the mtach.

The main highlights were Moore’s hat-trick - he sealed his last goal with a back-heeled kick.

Jacob Rice set him up for that one and also single-handedly dribbled the ball in to score.
