You’re my Boy Blue are the winner of our 3rd competition after defeating Pythons 3-2.
Both teams raised to the occasion by offering the crowd a fast and exciting game. It all started with Pythons taking the lead with a goal scored by Josh hope. Soon after, Brock Prickering gave his team their first goal taking advantage of a loose ball in front of goal. Close to the end of the first period Brock Prickering crossed the ball through the defence and found Will Thomas unmarked who took a direct shot and gave You’re my Boy Blue team the advantage.
Second period was scoreless but the game did not loose its intensity with both team passing the ball well to retain possession. Yannick Sottaz had the best scoring chance for Pythons when his close range shot hit the cross bar.
The third period promised to be exciting with both team capable of claiming the title. Half way through the period, Daniel Sottaz provided hope for the Pythons by scoring a great goal from a mid range shot well placed in the top right hand corner. Within a minute, Will Thomas scored the winning goal for You’re my Boy Blue with a long range shot deflected, taking the keeper Jon Marks by surprise. To the last minute, both team had opportunities and kept the crowd entertained.
