Holyhead Hotspur Reserves 3-4 Bulls
A memorable game At The Oval for all 100 plus supporters started with Hotspur immediately playing some good football and Bulls looking deadly on the break
That's how the first goal came a ball releasing Craig More he was taken down in the box for a penalty and he put it away on 9 mins 0.1 Bulls
Holyhead pressed for an equalizer and were caught out for a second time on 16 mins after Matt Reynolds played in Midge for his second a fine run and finish.
Lee Heywood in the Bulls goal was kept busy denied a one on one after 26 mins a fine save as Holyhead edged closer but on 38 mins the Bulls had a third Midge judging the offside to perfection and floated a ball to the far post where the hard working Anton Williams got his rewards with a point blank header.
0.3 at the break with the wind it was always going to be tougher second half for the Bulls and it proved just that way
Holyhead pulled one back immediately from poor defending but a really good finish gave Lee no hope.
20 mins of nothing then became 5 mins of madness as midge got his hattrick a great ball from Jerome Silence released the striker who had it all to do and left two defenders trailing and found the bottom corner on 65
Straight from ko Holyhead pushed on and scored a swirling shot from their player manager Mike Kelly wrong footing Lee. Heywood in the bulls goal
Two mins later it was game on 4-3 almost from the same range a wicked deflected shot wrong footed the bulls keeper again giving him no chance.
The last 20 mins it was like the Alamo the young hotspurs putting Bulls backs against the wall and Lee Heywood in the bulls goal producing save after save to get the points for the bulls Credit must go to both teams for such a close encounter but extra credit must go to the 8 or 9 16yr olds playing tonight for the home side who did not look out place one bit against a very experienced Bulls side
