Davy Wilson Cup Match
Victoria Park 3 - 1 St. John the Baptist
The football team progressed to the next round of the Davy Wilson cup in style with an excellent win against St. John the Baptist on Tuesday.
Victoria Park got off to a strong start, passing the ball well and playing entertaining football, however it was the away team that took the lead. A fast break saw their striker get between the defenders and finish with a powerful shot that left Aaron with little chance to save.
The home team kept their heads up and continued to play passing football forcing the opposition keeper into a number of great saves. Throughout the match, Zach found great success down the left hand side making strong runs and putting dangerous balls into the box. Eventually the pressure told and Evan finished well to bring the scores level.
The team carried on playing well into the second half and took the lead through a shot by Rylan. The result was put beyond doubt when Kameron extended the lead to 3 - 1.
This was by far the best performance of the season by the whole team. Jay, Reuben and Ebony provided a strong back line, making good tackles and interceptions. The midfield of Kameron, Rylan, Zach and substitute Lewis controlled the game well, with Lewis being denied a goal scoring opportunity by a last ditch tackle. Up front Evan made good runs and was rewarded with his first goal of the season.
