Giants goalshots were like real unhealthy food in a fat kids lunch box in this afternoons clash - there were loads! as the Giants spanked the hynys of the Otters at Rudston! And boy did they taste good after nearly a month of no soccer action!
The Giants army of fans made their feelings known to the boys post-match as fan of the match Dempsey Stubbings wheeled out his celebratory truffle shuffle cello as he waved off the away fans.
The purple uniforms gave their fans some real nice memories to take away, but it was a sloppy and some might say an expected slow start from the home side on what was a very blustery day in the countryside.
The changes had been rung by Coach Plumpton and he was beginning to worry if he had made the right decision picking club deefense lord Brad Parkin, after the youngster passed the ball out of play for no apparent reason. The coach shook his head and was seen muttering "Wait ‘til the Saturday league brings in rolling subs" much to Parkin's embarrassment.
The first goalshot of the match came in quite astonishing fashion as Plumpton casually controlled the ball from a poor goal kick strike on half way, the pint sized magician who some say could find a man on the moon with his passing range - found Friend 25 yards out. Friend did a real good move and kicked the ball real good as he aimed for the far right lower 90 and the ball came booming back off the post and in off the unsuspecting Otters goal tender. It was hard on the big man but Friend was a happy man. Until he was told it wouldn't be his goal.
Like the old saying "One-Two miss a few, 99 a hundred" goes, the Giants made it two after indeed scoring the one.
Le'Friett was like Sunderland's Adam Johnson when the bell goes at 3.30pm, moving so fast to get there, when he raced on to a loose ball and fired in to the back of the soccer goal interior.
With the wind at their backs in the first period the Giants had been dominant and the half time buzzer buzzed, as the Scalby Otters went indoors feeling sadder than some guy who had to get his pet hamster put down after a short illness to his loyal friend.
They were very sad, and some verbally so as they name called and were mean to the Giants boys on the way in to the locker rooms. frown emoticon
First Period 2 v Neil.
The home franchise came out of the traps like Kauto Star in his prime at the national and Dan Pickard was the man to take the next Otter blow, quite literally in fact!
As the wide man (as in pitch position not body shape) found space in the 18 yard danger zone he attempted to do a swivel action, when suddenly he found himself on the end of a Holly Holmes-esque spinning heel kick to the jaw and the lights were out - and Pickard's chances of the UFC title were over there and then.
Ginger lad Tyson Stubbings, 21, stepped up to the death strike and fired home with a real big kick. It was 3. Game over.
After being checked out by team DR - Dr Pepper, Pickard was passed fit and allowed to continue his battle, and thankfully for him he was, as he was the next to stain the Scalby no longer clean sheet with a composed finish after some neat work by George Friend up top.
Coach Pete in the Sub Shack was demanding clinical finishing and the Giants to not let up and that was exactly what he got as Greymar, Duckworth and Hudson emerged from the Sub Shack, brimming with instructions the tactical genius had given.
It was left to substitute and all round baldy Mike Greymar to finish off the Otters with a quick fire brace as Neil Prentice somehow managed to perfectly weight a through ball. Maybe it was because he had been dumped pre match and his mind was finally back on the game? And Tom Hudson picked out the number 9 with a fine cross for Greymar to tuck home and seal the victory and a place in the next round of the Frank White World Series.
The victory meant that the Giants won. And the win means they will move in to the next round and come up against the Commercial Crabs in what some fans are calling "a potential slobber-knocker of a tie".
