Bluntisham Blasters Red 3 St Ives Town 6
Cambridgeshire & District Colts League U13A Division – 25 April 18
After a thrilling Cup final against Bluntisham at the weekend, we were back to business in the league to try and keep winning the title a possibility.
The first half came alive as soon as Daniel Legg swept a twenty yard shot in to the goal. It seemed to wake up Bluntisham. If it wasn’t for Luis in goal they would have been on equal terms straight away.
We let them back in with a couple of minutes to go to half time and we where at 1-1.
It seemed difficult to get motivated so we swapped some players and freshened up the team. This for once did us no favours and Bluntisham got in behind again for their second. This brought us back to life and we seemed to move the ball better. A great through ball by Luke Dunn and Damien Boakye smashed it past the keeper. Then in a cruel turn of events from a corner, Billy headed the ball past our own keeper. It then clicked. We went straight down their end and Alfie helped himself to a goal and we running hot. The next goal by Damien was spectacular from out side the box. He hit it sweetly with his left foot in to the top right corner.
Ben Hunter the floated the ball out to the right and Luke Dunn then crossed the ball to be parried by the keeper, then Harry stole it in the box and put the ball in the net.
The next goal was incredible. The Bluntisham defence cleared the ball to the half way line and Billy just smashed the ball back. It looped over everyone and dropped in the goal. We were a little lacking in enthusiasm tonight, but we played our way back into a game when it looked like going all horribly wrong.

Man of the match – Luis Gill.
Our goalkeeper had a great game and made eight or nine great saves. He showed us all again today what an incredible talent he is.
A very satisfying result today. As a team we had to work hard for the result. All the best to Bluntisham for the rest of the season .
