Well with the alpine skiing resorts finally disappeared long enough for the Huddersfield’s under elevens, to hopefully finish the 2013 campaign and with 3 games to play, it was all systems go for the final Slalom course to the finish line. Today’s game was also the first time spring visited us and it was good to see our old friend the sun.
It was our last home game of the season and we welcomed Pudsey to the Hippodrome. The game was slightly delayed due to large number of fans wanting to see the final game on home soil.
The line up was as follows
Luke Broadbent © Briayar Maghdeed Aidan Wilkinson
Jacob Costello Alex Mcdonald Harry Baines
Cain Wilkinson Harry Smith
Sub Billy Farley
With this game being the first in a month and the importance of a win the young Lions started somewhat cautiously and both sides had early chances. Once the dust settled and the Lion’s got their passing going, the front two began to find their range, Harry Smith (8 and 35 minutes) and Cain Wilkinson (15 and 28 minutes), who have 66 goals between them this season, within 15 minutes that was up to 68 goals for the campaign and by the time the half time whistle had gone it was up to 70 goals. In between that milestone, Jacob Costello (man of the match) had scored one and had been influential in an own goal.
With the game all but over, the second half was a more of an even game with the home side missing a few good chances, but credit due to the away side who never gave up and finally got on the score sheet with a penalty, which only just beat Joe Moutell’s outstretched dive. However, within minutes Harry Baines finished off a well worked move that his overall play deserved. With the clock running down Pudsey finished the games scoring with a disputed goal but when your 7-1 to the good who cares!!!!!
Editor’s thoughts! Well played boys all of you, great team performance two away games left one more win and you will be deservedly crowned champions. Special mention to Cain Wilkinson and Jacob Costello and Harry Baines who ran their little socks off today, lets wrap the championship up next Sunday………….
Once again many thanks for those who turn up and watch us at home, and those parents who help with the goal posts at full time we love you all………….
Finally, can I say Neil Farley (Billy’s dad) looked years younger today, must be all that fresh air and exercise or maybe a little help from Mr Botox????????????
