Report by Randy Bloomshield, Scarborough News Of The World

Goal Sports Franchise Club recorded a humongous victory as they try real hard to get their asses promotionalized in their freshman year of the SLC.

The Sleights Seahawks were the visitors to the Storm Roofing Arena, with the Soccer Hawks, who play in a zebra inspired PE kit, trying their hardest to take the victory points back to the promised land of Whitby, the home of Dracula.

It was almost a case of “uh oh not again” for the Giants as just like Wednesday’s Scarborough Cup Of Nations Final capitulation they found themselves in cruise control, with 25 minutes to go and once again pressed the self-destruct button which is becoming incredibly worrying for Coach Plumpton in the home dug out. I joke, he is always on the pitch, taking all free kicks, pens, throw ins but not goal kicks as he can’t kick that far.

“I am worried at our lack of character and mentality to hold on to a lead” Said Plumpton to our club reporter Gail Hailstorm, who has enjoyed a great Easter.

“These young lads must learn to use their brains as well as their feet if they are to become heroes of the season” added a disgruntled Plumpton.

However, it was the Giants who opened the scoring on 20 minutes as nimble footed midfielder Phil Hill danced through the Seahawks back door and found himself chopped in two as he swan dived after contact.

Whistle lord Davey Hudghton had no choice but to point for a deathstrike and returning skipper Tyson Stubbings, replacing “little skip” who has impressed with the band over the last few games – placed the ball on to the circular death strike spot with confidence.
That confidence was incredibly misplaced as the definitely not strawberry blonde forward ballooned his death strike way way over the bar (Scroll down to see incredible video footage of the moment that will take your breath away).

Nanny June of Rose Cottage, Burton Fleming, the next village, said “I was just out doing my garden when all of a sudden I heard our John scream look out look out, and there it was, a Goal Sports football came crashing in and shattered my cheeky gnome on the edge of our pond!”

Pwilly was having to remain sharp at the other end as he made a smart stop to deny a bad guy and the home side were becoming frustrated as the scores remained at neil neil.

Like Billy Elliot performing in the West End to a great load of people Hill again bamboozled the Hawks back line with silky skills not seen since Jamie Skilligan upon Olivers Mountain back in 2k13 for Manor FC. Again Hill was felled by a deefense guys wandering cleat and a death strike was indeed awarded.

Quite astonishingly the away deefense guy managed to stay on the field despite being the last man after committing his inside danger zone felony!

It was decided Stubbings should maybe not take this one, and French striker Le’Friett muttered something in his native tongue whilst looking angry, and the rest of the Giants agreed he should be the guy to get to kick it with his cleat.

With a swoosh of his new yellow boot Le’Friett inserted and ended his 4 game drought that sends him on to 14 goalshots for the season and the Giants were finally in front after domination of the games early doors.

Unbelievably another death strike shout was waved away, as the ageing Hawks back line just couldn’t hack the pace of the home sides attacking outlets, and it was again Hill who performed a triple pike and bomb inside the 18 yard danger zone after contact.
The felonies were coming thick and fast, this time on 20 yards as yep you guessed it – Hill was fouled AGAIN -and this time there would only be one hero taking this felony kick, and his name was Plumpton.

The “Little Juninho” as the majority of the fans have recently nicknamed him stepped up, marked out his routine and fired in an unstoppable strike that doubled the Giants lead and made the home side a little bit calmer and sent the home number 4 back to his position with what could only be described as a wigwam in his PE shorts.

First Period 2 v Neil

The home coach quickly reminded his troops about the late game capitulation when 2 up from Wednesdays final, and instructed the boys to play with their brains and not only their toes for the second time today, keep the ball, tire the opposition. Win easily was the instructions, insert the fist!

Out came the Purples doing exactly the opposite and although a whole host of chances came and went once again, most notably Whitehead who fluffed his lines when presented with a sweaty goal – the Giants did extend the lead to 3 in the form of Stubbings as he performed coach Pete’s new “Starburst” attacking move and gained slight redemption from his early miss as he rounded the keeper and tucked well.

And BOOM came the capitulation once again!

68 minutes in and a hotly disputed corner for the Hawks was never cleared properly and some real happy guy swept in to Pwillys SGI as he gave his team a life line.

The home side were rocking like the Regal Lady in the North Sea and the Seahawks from Sleights were ready to board like a set of naughty Somalian Pirates.

A long ball outta nowhere caught the home side napping and Pwilly and Parkin found themselves in a right pigs ear and before either of them knew it the same Hawk hero pounced faster than a fat kid on a falling chip in the school canteen as he lofted over the goal denyer and in to the unguarded soccer goal to make the scores mighty close!

Subshack entry Tom Hudson had a chance to goalshot or pass to a friend late on, and another game newbie in J Reddish tried his luck from 20 to no avail and that was that for the match.

The Giants had done it – Just, but the coaching team were not happy at once again struggling to see out a game that they were seemingly in pole position and the home coach had a face like a real mad guy as the pint sized tactician had almost seen it go Pete Tonge for the 2nd time in a week late doors.

It is another quick turnaround for the Giants as they travel North East(ish) to the big city of Sherburn to do battle with the Sherburn Red Devils on Monday night as they continue their quest for first time promotonization!
