After 270 minutes of feeling lower than some guy who won the lotto but couldn’t claim the jackpot as his Mrs binned the ticket – The Giants did a victoryization result at a windy Storm Roofing Arena!
Since moving to The Giants in the Summer, George Friend has proven that he's bloody good at playing football.
But when the ridiculously-talented Barnsleyboy isn't smashing home an absolute thunderb*stard of a shot from close quarters, or making some poor defender look like they've downed six pints as they try to deal with his dazzling footwork, Friend can be found drawing male genitals in the privacy of his student front room as he prepares for the next day’s soccer. Everyone prepares differently I guess…..
Today Friend, as we exclusively revealed to you yesterday in our SLC pre match build up – was the hero that took the Giant’s over the line and our once top knotted hero was at the double.We are also mighty pleased here at Goal Sports towers that he ditched the old do as he did indeed look like a silly cotton headed ninny-muggins.
It was a confident early knockings for the home side as they made use of the real life flat, and wide football pitch at their disposal, which was a far cry from the school pitches and Olivers Mount debacles over the past few soccer ties.
Prentice was pulling out tekkers not seen since Stubbz7 took to the field way back in the olden days as he inserted the preverbal fist upon his opposite number on numerous occasions early doors.
There is a rumour Prentice and bae have been practicing in her garden as he asks her to “come at me” as he perfects his desired skill move.
A source close to Prentice said “They are at it every day and night, they just can’t get enough of it whether it be in the garden, in the front room or with his mini balls in the bedroom – they just love it!”
The first insertion of the soccer goal came on 22 minutes as our already reported hero George Friend cannoned a shot at goal from close quarters, which ricochet in off a hapless Otters defender who got real sad like a naughty kid who had put crayons in the VCR, knowing he had done real bad and people would be mighty mad at his actions.
The Purple attacking wave of soccerness was well and truly in evidence as the home side pushed on with the winds at their back and left wing bobby dazzler Neil Prentice crashed an effort off the bar after good work by Kieran Le’Friett in strike attack.
Paddy Power have as of today now started taking bets on how many “Skiers” our number 8 wearing Prentice will perform in this week’s final as he let rip from 20 when well placed to murder a family of migrating ‘guls as they flew by on 29 mins when a target shot seemed far likelier.
The pressure told minutes later as today’s skipper, Pickard, 24, (Pictured) flew in to a customary 20-80 tackle, only to see the ball rocket in to the back of the net as the ball was cleared in to a flailing arm.
Former netball expert Poppy Scott, who just so happened to be watching the tie in the subshack told our reporter Gail Hailstorm how great the net insertion was.
“Oh my goodness what a basket” said Poppy
“I remember captaining our school team in year 8 and scoring a similar effort as goal attack to win the inter schools cup and all our team went proper sick, it was quite a net!” added our netball loving fan.
The second goal seemed to spur Prentice in to even more skill and on 37 minutes our hero performed more spins than an Eastfield Fairground waltzer as he bamboozled his way through a number of Otter challenges with unbelievable tekkers, that drew woo’s and ahhhh’s from the bumper Easter crowd (Although it was noted Uncle Dean and Auntie Sam were stayaways…….)
There was still time for Pollard, Whitehead and Le’Friett to go close in the late doors and Pwilly had to be at his best to hand deny a couple of goal bound Otters efforts, but the scores would remain at 2 and zero as the hooter hooted to end the quarter.
First Period – 2 v Neil
The tikka-tikka style of play that the Giants have become accustomed too at Rudston had been well and truly brought to the table in the first period and the home coach asked for more of the same in the second stanza.
Sadly said soccer style was not quite at the same level but an away substitution would see the Giants take a further goalshot lead on 55 minutes.
Substitute Dave Oxley came ‘outta nowhere and delivered his trademark finishing move “The Pedigree” on the Giants skipper Dan Pickard in the 18 yard danger zone and the whistle lord went proper ham and ordered a death strike right there and then.
Friend stepped up and fired in to the SGI and the home flags were awaving as the victory points seemed closer than they have in recent weeks. Everybody was real happy in Purple and felt good.
The away sides crossbar was struck twice more as Plumpton kissed it with a free kick from 20, and Friend almost snapped it in half from 12, but it would be the latter who capped a fantastic display as strike attack as he converted a close range set up from bearded man Dan Pollard, who had done some proper good kicks with youngster Tom Hudson down the right side.
The day was won and the relief was there to see on the fans, players and coaching teams little faces at the Storm Roofing Arena as the wheels on the season bus are seemingly reattached.
Up next is the 3rd tie of the season with the pesky Commercial Crabs, who will be eager to get one over the Giants after being slayed twice already upon Olivers Mountain this season.
The Notorious Robbie Hawkes is set to be waiting for their arrival like a praying pull up frenzied mantis….
