Match report: Warminster Highbury U12 Reds 14 – 0 Purnells Sports Youth U12
Another strong performance from the Reds this week who welcomed Purnells Sports to Princecroft playing fields for their second league tie at home this season.
The home team dominated from the start, passing quickly and accurately and continually pushing forward to create and finish chance after chance. Although this wasn’t the prettiest display of football that we’ve ever seen from the Reds, the lads …were on fine form and battled hard to ensure that the visitors didn’t get a minute on the ball. By half-time the Reds were comfortably 6-0 up thanks to great link-up play from the whole team and cracking goals from Ethan P (2), Braden H (2), Oliver L, Jack D and Ben L.
The second half performance was, if anything, stronger than the first. The visitors showed great spirit and worked hard to try and stay in the game but, understandably, they were deflated as the goals against them continued to rack up. Our second half scorers were Braden H (4), Ben L (2), Toby R and Ethan P. Congratulations to Ethan and Ben who both got hat-tricks and Braden who had another stunning game with a double hat-trick.
The Reds welcomed three new players to the squad this week who all got a run out and contributed to the winning performance – Riley M (who has moved from the U12 Blacks), Charlie W and Regan B. Well done to everyone for their efforts today.
