SARNIA FC - U12 PREMIER TEAM WIN FOURTH IN A ROW
The Sarnia FC U12 Boys team continued their winning ways on Tuesday night. They would play host to London's PCL Fury. This was their second meeting of the season with Sarnia winning the first game by a score of 3 - 1.
As in previous games, Sarnia would have a slow start and find themselves trailing by a goal after only two minutes of action. Sarnia would soon find their legs and pick up the pace trying to equalize. At the twelve minute mark, Sarnia striker Ryan Janssens would pick-up the loose ball, dribble around two defenders and place the perfect left-footed shot over the outstretched hands of the PCL keeper. Shortly after, Sarnia would take the lead on a goal mouth scramble. Mid-fielder, James Brown would not be denied as he hammered home a loose ball. As the clock would wind down, Sarnia would up their lead by two on a beautiful combination play. Left half-back Nathan Hawkes would make the long outside run and send the perfect cross which was finished by Sarnia mid-fielder Blake Wallace. Sarnia would lead 3 - 1 at the half.
The PCL Fury would show great composure at the start of the second half. Their persistence would be rewarded as they replied with two quick goals to knot the game up at three's. Sarnia would once again prove their resilience and storm back into the game. Striker, Ryan Janssens would calmly convert a rebound through the London keeper's legs to notch his second of the game. Minutes later, Sarnia's Michael Howe would up the lead by two as he blasted a drive into the right corner of the PCL net. Sarnia FC would continue to pressure pinning PCL deep in their end. Mid-fielder, Tristen Konrad would take the ball out wide and find his way to the London goal smashing a low drive, which would elude the PCL goaltender.
As time wound down, the "Ryan Janssen Show" would continue as the Sarnia striker would put an exclamation mark on the game firing in his third of the match! Sarnia FC's unbeaten streak would continue as the final whistle blew. Strong overall performance by all team members. Sarnia's back line stood tall shutting down most all of London's chances.
Sarnia keeper, Andrew Harron would pick-up the win in goal! Coaches were very proud of the team's play and dominance on the pitch!
Next league action is Sunday night, June 29th in London vs. AEK. The team is heading to Toronto on Saturday to participate in "The Robbie" Soccer tournament. Good Luck Boys!!
