Superb team effort today with a very impressive win against a good SK Vipers team who we had a an end to end game with earlier in the season. We have spoke a lot with the boys about starting games at a fast pace, something which has sometimes cost us games in the past due to taking a while to get going. Today the Predators were straight on the attack from the kick off quickly putting pressure on the opposition. We kept possession well and put together lots of neat passes with players getting themselves into good spaces. There was a lot of unselfish play today with the team recognising when team mates were in better positions and releasing the ball early.
Alex had a quality game today, his handling was really good and he rushed off his line twice to deny their striker when one on one.
Emanuel continued his run of strong performances with some hard tackles and good reading of danger.
Aiden intercepted too many passes to count, he anticipated a lot of their play and put a strong foot in at the right time.
Lucas played really well today, i think he won every tackle he went in for and what is impressive is that he doesnt panic after winning the ball, he takes half a second to look up and make his next move.
Daniel dominated in the holding midfield role linking everything together and putting pressure on non stop also adding a great finish from the left into the far corner.
Riley continued his good form, running back and putting more tackles in. He is improving everyweek with his passing and also grabbed another goal with a poachers finish. He’ll be annoyed if i dont mention the run he went on which beat 3 ( he reckons 6) players, so there you go.
Zak’s effort was 100% today, he put in some brilliant work down the wing showing skill and pace to move the attacks on quickly then providing good crosses into the box.
John was outstanding today. Tackling very hard and letting the opponents know he was there. He is a very unselfish player and was always looking to play the final ball in for one of his team mates. He never gets tired and has hugely improved the team overall since he joined.
Joshua was really in the mood for this today, he didnt stop, chasing down everything where there might be a slight chance that he can make something of it which he usually can! He physically won the battle today and added some well taken goals adding another hat trick to the expense of his mum and dad’s bank account.
A big improvement from the last time we played this well organised team. The work in training is being brought into the games on Sundays and its really starting to show. Well done boys
