Recap

WHAT A GREAT GAME.
We know todays game was just a so called “Friendly” but it was against a very good team in MASPA FC from MAAI MAHIU town, who won their league last season.
Final score:
SUNDERLAND AFC KEROCHE 7:2 MASPA FC
We started todays game with 8 senior academy players, because in recent weeks they have been performing out of their skins, and thoroughly deserved their opportunity.
PHILO opened the scoring on 23 mins, followed by OLIVER in the 38th min, to give us a 2-0 half time lead.
At half-time we made 7 subs, bringing in a lot of 1st team regulars, but within 2 mins of the restart MASPA scored a superb goal, and our academy boys, were shouting “WE NEVER CONCEDED ANY GOALS”
This only spurred our senior players into action, and within 5 mins PHILO got his 2nd goal, followed 3 mins later by CAPT JOSE adding a 4th.
MASPA were still creating a lot of chances, but our keeper and defenders were keeping them at bay.
In the 61st min, the very talented MBURU added number 5, after skipping past 2 defenders and calmly slotting it past their keeper.
on 73 mins CAPT JOSE kept up his current goal scoring run and added number 6, taking his own seasons tally to six.
Then on 78 mins MBURU also got his 2nd goal to make it 7-1.
With 4 mins remaining MASPA FC got a 2nd goal, to make the final score 7-2.
The Lads are now hitting great form and confidence, and this victory, has put them in great spirits, ready for the resumption of the league fixtures next Sunday, after the festive break.
The future is looking bright, especially with the young talent we have coming through from the senior academy.
