Date filed: 07 Apr 2013
Played: 7th April 2013
The Lions stormed into their 2nd Cup Final in consecutive seasons with a convincing win over Barton Rovers this morning
After falling behind to a penalty after 4 minutes, it was then up to the lads to get a grip on the game. We initially looked nervous obviously not wanting to lose another goal but as soon as we got level with a goal from Luke, the first of his hat trick there was only one team in it.
We added the second two minutes later & on 34 minutes, Luke had his 3 goals wrapped up all within the space of 8 minutes
We were continually pressing with Barton struggling to get out of their half so finishing very strong for the first half
HT 3 - 1
In the past we have been slow to get going in the second half, so i had asked the lads to give it their all for the first 10 minutes. This was duly rewarded with a finish from Jamie rounding off some good play 4 - 1
Our overall play was very good & we had looked dangerous from every set piece. It was from a corner we added number 5, George rising above everyone to head home 5 - 1
Pleasing to see the lads not dropping off & wanting more, we missed numerous chances before Thomas produced an overhead scoop into the far corner 6 - 1
The keeper was being kept very busy before we added another, Alex rising to head home at the far corner 7 - 1
As the lads started to wind down in the last minute, we unfortunately left too much space to concede another
FT 7 -2
A great display & team performance from everyone today, a thoroughly deserved win & much deserved place in the final
Well Done Lads !!! Very proud as always
