Match report from Rnd 4
Russell Vale 3 v 0 Tarrawanna
A couple of weeks ago it was the tale of two brothers, this time it was the tale of two corners both courtesy of Harrison Benn. Baxter Bowler Prentice was on hand to capitalise on the first one to give the Cobras a deserved 1-0 HT lead. In the second half more chaos resulted in the goalmouth from an in swinging corner that saw Christian Baade Mortimer hit the underside of the bar but Jordan Errington was perfectly placed to net the rebound. Jordan Errington’s graft up front was rewarded again when he robbed a defender of the ball inside the 18 yard box and finished well to make it 3-0.
It wasn’t all one way traffic, Tarrawanna gave our defence a few problems by breaking at speed on the counter attack. Fortunately the defenders Tom Curran, Baxter Bowler Prentice and Baily Baade Mortimer remained solid under the guidance of our sweeper Jack Donnelly. We were forced into changing the keeper at HT due to illness and Brody Armour stepped into the breach to replace Ethan Johnson. However despite one or two goalmouth scrambles and last minute tackles the Cobras retained a clean sheet in the first game of our league campaign. Overall it was another pleasing performance and the Tarrawanna Coach even paid a compliment to the Russell Vale “pass & move” style of football.
p.s. Remember no lights – no training tonight.
