County Cup quarter final win against Comet Sports
Hat trick, Clean sheets & a semi-final to come
A Sunday lunchtime kick off for our County Cup quarter final, and Comets started well, seeing plenty of the ball but not being able to get close to the Harvesters goal thanks to outstanding defending throughout the team. By the end of the first half a hard fought battle led to Zak leaving the field with a blood injury, replaced by Josh on the wing.
Just a minute later, a scramble on the edge of the Comets box and Luke tried a shot from distance, which dipped late into the corner of the Comets goal to break the deadlock. 1-0 and half time.
Zak was back on for Harrison at the start of the second half, and a long shot dropping onto the keeper caused panic in the Comets box, for Luke to benefit from with a scrambled goal from close range, 2-0. Just five minutes later a through ball was chased down by the Comets keeper outside his box, for him to clear it straight to Luke who spotted the opportunity and took a chance to fire in from long range, over the retreating keeper's head and into the open goal. A hat trick for Luke, and at 3-0 the match was feeling safer.
A few more subs on and off. Plenty of effort all over the pitch. And an impressive clean sheet with a 3-0 win to go forward to a semi final. Luke man of the match with a match winning hat trick, but a real team performance with every player contributing to an impressive win.
