It was an amazing day for the Goal Sports Giants Soccer Franchise, as the 3 point haul from Olivers Mount capped an incredible big D from the Res squadron over at the Kilham soccer base, meaning everyone part of the club is real happy and feels good inside today.
The usual purple yet today playing in fluo yellow uniforms had been decimated by a plethora of squad members deciding soccer was not to be soccered today, and replacements came at the moment the Goal Sports logo was fired in to the night sky. Think Batman, it was pretty much like Batman….
So in to the soccer PE kit came Hudson, Jonny Pallant, Joe Mills, Liam Glaves, Zlatan IbraTwinnovic and of course super sub himself – Tony Martin – and we are mighty thankful to them for saving the day!
The game was played on a fantastic playing surface rivalled by absolutely nothing in the area, with the Olivers Mountain groundsman obviously working overtime this week to make sure the game would indeed be played.
After a scrappy opening 15, in which a smart Pwilly hand denial was made, the Giants would open the scoring with one of the days new boys doing bits in the DBZ.
Joe Mills, 23, leapt higher than anyone and bullet headkicked a pin point Tommy Hudson flag kick right in to the upper 90, and erase an earlier one on one miss which after this goalshot would now definitely be forgiven.
Hudson had answered the call from post-match as Coach Plumpton had expressed concerns at who would take flag kick scenarios, and as a famous Scottish Manchester United Soccer Franchise coach once said “his flag kicks must be worth 10 million dollars on their own” as Mills flashed wide from an almost identical scenario moments later.
The Giants front 3 of BGM – Beeby-Greymar – Mills – were causing havoc every time the ball would make its way in to the vipers end of the field as the 3 burly front men created, and missed a number of first half opportunities to add to the score line with some excellent soccer.
It would be a dead ball situation that would double the away lead - and in a time of need, with half your team missing, someone had to stand up and be counted, and I think we know who dat guy was. A pinpoint felony kick kissed the Vipers horizontal white beam as it made its way in to the back of the onion bag, and Plumpton wheeled away with the trademark Shearer cello after scoring his 2nd direct felony kick of the season. The away fans went wild. An outrageous show of indiscipline on 38 minutens from a Vipers midfielder saw Tom Collins take a right hook to the face which unbelievably only drew a minor felony card from match official Kev Crick - who somehow didn’t see it!
Another incredible event saw a major denial of a deathstrike, as striking ace Joe Mills was seemingly felled after a great show of trickery in the box, only to himself pick up a minor felony card for dissent – and quite rightly so as we do not condone being nasty to match officials!
First Period – Neil v 2
The usually prolific Mike Beeby was today feeling incredibly charitable as he gifted the soccer ball back to the home soccer team on numerous occasions when well placed, and the 2nd period would prove to be similar to the first as a huge opportunity went begging like some excessive hair faced guy in the mean streets of Sheffield on the search for enough change for a Greggs pasty.
BGM saw more chances come and sadly go, as Greymar fired wide and Mills showed his erratic side that gets his usual club mate and friend Simon Oxendales juices flowing the right direction when playing for his usual team the Heslerton Hedgehogs, but the link up play between the 3 was more than making up for the lack of stained sheet action.
Finally Beeby turned in to the Van Nistelrooy like goal poaching machine that has made him a cult hero amongst the clubs throng of young supporters and with a swoosh of his right boot out came the calmest most precise touch of a football you are ever likely to see upon Olivers Mountain, and seconds later the ball was in the back of the net to give the score line a more deserving look to it. The makeshift team was functioning like a well-oiled machine on Harry Denness’s grandad’s farm, and some great soccer kicks from back to front were making the travelling fans real happy, and in the 67th minute the game was done and dusted thanks to another of the old boys, Mike Greymar, as he powered home a deathstrike. Jonny Pallant on debut was having a stormer down the left flank, and his rapido pace found him in the clear with a sidefoot pass almost certainly about to occur when suddenly some real big bad guy took him out and the whistle lord pointed for one thing – the deathstrike.
Greymar, who cites deathstrikes as well as fancy dress as his speciality was never going to miss it, and with a calm side footed effort the game was at 4s and as good as over.
Sadly the other major talking point saw a Viper midfielder see a major felony card after a torrent of abuse directed at the whistle lord for a decision he didn’t agree with which then resulted in even worse discipline behaviour by said player on his way out to the locker rooms. Sad to see.
There was still time for Tony Martin to make his first team debut and almost cap it with a goalshot as he raced on to a through ball and somehow managed to fire over against his old club.
Oh and for Calum Denness to somehow pass up his own opportunity for his first ever goalshot and make him no longer a massive virgin – but the real bad hair guy left winger decided it would be best to just give it to the Vipers keeper instead.
“Some top top perfomances today by Tommy Hudson at right flank, as well as MOTM Sam Pallant in centre, but the whole team must give themselves a huge pat on the back this evening for performing excellently” said coach Plumpton on the way to the locker rooms as he took a moment with club reporter and worldy babe Gail Hailstorm
Job done, W confirmed and more points on the league ladder standings. How high can the Giants now claim? Is Super League A beckoning?! Only time will tell……
