U19s 8 Pontefract 0 by Old Git

Not the close game I was expecting and it didn’t help Pontefract
that they gifted us the first 3 goals in first quarter of an hour.
A defender and keeper buggered about and lost the ball to Aiden Thurston
who placed it into the net from the edge of the box after 60 seconds.
In the 2nd minute we tried to repay the compliment and nearly gifted
the visitors a goal with a similar pratting about before sending the ball down to the
swimming pool end for a repeat of the first goal fiasco but this time it was Harry Bissett
who was gifted the ball and raced through to just inside the box before hitting home to make it 2-0.
On fifteen minutes the visitor’s keeper played the ball out to a defender just outside
the right hand side of the box and the defender with no one near him played it out for a Boro corner.
The ball came in from the corner, a Boro head got to it first the ball hit a defender and dropped
then after a slow motion ricochet in the 6 yard box the ball reached Flynn McNaughton
who slammed it home for 3-0. Easy game this football lark when the opposition is playing for you.
Fro the next 15 mins the game ebbed and flowed but Pontefract couldn’t get a shot on target
and then Boro played the ball through the middle and Harry Bissett.
banged it home from 10 for 4-0 to Boro
Second half got under way and there was a few mins huffing & puffing and then Boro sub
George Walmsley got into his stride, going on a mazy dribbling run through 3 tackles
he got to the edge of the box and crashed a shot past the keeper into the right hand corner for 5-0.

A few minutes later he went on a similar run and this time cracked it into the other corner,
giving the keeper no chance so it was 6-0. a few minutes later the ball hit the post but from another
shot but no hat-trick for George.
This seemed to waken up Pontefract who’d made a mass substitution of 5 in an
attempt to get back in the game and the Boro keeper seemed to take Pontefract on by himself
as the Boro defence went on a holiday in their heads as Craig Thordason made a trio
of excellent saves to ensure the Boro defence wasn’t’ breached.

With the night turning chilly in the stand and the game fast approaching closing time
George Walmsley finally got his hat-trick running in from the left to the edge of the box
and hitting the ball across the keeper into the corner.
Was that the end of the scoring, no, almost with the last kick of the game Fergus McGauthrie cracked
in a fine goal to make it 8-0.

It sounds as though Boro had it all their own way but Pontefract had a couple of good lads up front
who created some decent opportunities but they and their team mates just couldn’t finish them off
and really spurned two or three great chances to score in the 2nd half.
Looked a bigger crowd than last week and Pontefract brought a few fans with them but it
was Boro fans who were celebrating with a good round of applause as the teams came off at the end.

I have to thank whoever posts their names on @safc.
You can’t expect me to recognise the players when I couldn’t
even recognise Frank, my friend of 50 years, who was sat 2 rows
in front of me for the first 45 mins tonight.
