Division 3 – Saturday February 6th 2016
COWES SPORTS ‘A’ 12 v 0 RYDE SAINTS ‘A’
The young Yachtsmen blew Ryde Saints away in blustery conditions on Saturday. The home team welcomed back Jake Cass from injury, and also had Will Sharp making his debut. Cowes started the game brightly and it came as no surprise when JOE CRAIG fired Cowes into the lead after just 10mins. It soon became 2-0 when JOE CRAIG was quickest to react in the Ryde Saints area to score his and the ‘A’ teams second. The home side were keeping the ball really well and switching play from one side of the pitch to the other which really stretched the visitors. The space created by their play allowed a through ball in behind their center backs, which was latched on to by RYAN FLYNN who made it 3-0. On 37mins another great team move put NICKY VYSE clear and he duly netted.
The second half, played with the wind in the home sides favour was like the Alamo! JOE CRAIG completed his hat-trick as did RYAN FLYNN and NICKY VYSE and there were also goals for FIN RAY and RUPERT BOWLES. In the dying seconds of the game NICKY VYSE went on to score his fourth and the teams twelfth goal. This was a great team performance with every player staying focused, keeping their shape and encouraging each other.
