U10 Black record 4th clean sheet in a row against Sheffield Six's

Posted by admin on March 12, 2014

The penultimate game of the season saw the Spartans record probably the most dominant performance, whilst still not firing on all cylinders. Sheffield Six's visited the Caribbean Club for the first time and went away disappointed.

Sheffield Six's arrived a couple of player short for this game that the Spartans had to win to make sure they had any chance of winning the league (and hope that Shaw Lane slip up somewhere).

The Spartans started playing up the slope and within the first minute or so carved open the Sheffield Six's defence and nearly score on the first attack of the game. It wasn't long however before the boys opened their account for the day as some neat work on the edge of the box by Betsy was finished off by Kieren for his 32nd goal of the season. 

Kieren soon turned provider as he teed up Rmaraye for a quick 2-0 and the boys were flying, not allowing Sheffield Six's any time on the ball and passing the ball about in midfield quite well.

It was soon 3-0 (although fortunately) as the ball was fired into the penalty area and in the resulting melée, Betsy appeared to push the Sheffield Six's defender who put the ball into the net - but the goal was given.

Sheffield Six's were still struggling to put together anything meaningful, with Josh, Alex and Cameron when needed keeping a strong wall at the back - James only having to touch the ball once in the first half.

Some great work down the right wing by Alfie set up Blade for 4-0. Rmaraye had a couple of opportunities to open up the Six's defence and set up Spartans all alone in the box, but chose to take an extra touch and the attacks were broken up.

The Sheffield Six's goalkeeper pulled off a couple of saves soon after to keep the sore respectable.

There was still time before half-time for another goal. The ball broke to the edge of the Sheffield Six's box for Josh to fire in a rare goal for the Spartans defence. 5-0 at half time.

The second half saw the Spartans kicking down the hill and for the first few minutes struggle to get to grips with the extra pace. But when they did, the shots and attacks started again. The goalkeeper making one or two stops and saves. However, Betsy extended the Spartans lead after stepping around a defender and slotting home.

Soon after, Alfie (in a carbon copy of the first half) set up Blade to make it 7-0 and ensure the game was won. It was now a matter of how many the Spartans would score. This was not really a reflection on Sheffield Six's who never gave up, more of the standard of the league that the Black Team have been playing in this year.

Two more quick goals followed as Kieren set up Betsy for his second of the game and then Rmaraye set up Alfie to make the score 9-0.

Sheffield Six's then had their best chance of the game as thet broke down the right and went clear of the Spartans defence to be one-on-one with James who made a comfortable save and cleared the danger.

The Spartans had the final word as Sam (who had terrorised the Six's all game) fired in a shot that was turned over the goalie and into the top of the net to finish the scoring at 10-0.

So, in the last 4 games the boys have scored 37 goals and conceded none. One game to go.
