Tuesday 13th December 2011
Another cold night at Tupton Hall School provided 3 exciting tight matches.
The first game of the night saw new team Tupton Tornadoes taking on Old Gun United.
A superb tight opening saw the game remaining 0-0 for some time, with some great saves from Old Gun keeper Mark Slinn and some excellent defending by Tupton defender Joe Payne they managed to keep the score down to no goals.
Tupton grew in confidence and were challenging the Old Gun keeper and eventual man of the match Slinn with great efforts from Danny Brookes and Jay Brookes.
Tupton's high line of defence left them vulnerable to the counter attack and Old Gun's managed to score a goal on the counter attack, quickly following that up with a second.
This spurred Old Gun's Gibb trio to take control of the game with Brett Gibb and Dwaine Gibb both netting a goal and John Gibb scoring two.
Jamie Brookes scored a late goal for Tupton Tornadoes to open his scoring account. This win for Old Guns took them up to 3rd place in the table.
The second game of the night saw title contenders Danesmoor Dynamos taking on the highly favoured new boys Towniz FC in a frantic paced game of end to end stuff.
The superbly organised Towniz played slick, good passing football and were unlucky to come up against an on form Danesmoor side.
A fantastic shot from Ben Meadley got an early goal for Danesmoor, he also bagged another goal, as did team mate Jacob Riggot in his first game of the season. Jamie Rowan also scored, taking his tally to 3 for the season.
Great goals also came from Towniz FC players Neil Johnson and Dave Shepherd.
Towniz were unlucky to be up against a tough Danesmoor defence run by Scott Baston and Scott Woodhouse and keeper Dave Johnson, eventual man of the match, who was on amazing form making outstanding save after outstanding save.
This six goal thriller was the game of the night, ending 4-2 to Danesmoor taking them to second in the table having scored 11 in 2 games.
In the third game of the night it saw table toppers Puma Kings taking on Birdholme FC.
Puma Kings gave debut to youngster Jack Preece and he made an instant impact scoring a goal after being on the pitch for just a minute.
It was a cold affair on an icy night and proved to be quite a scrappy game.
Puma Kings dominated possession with Jonathan Davies and Leon White controlling the game on their respected wings and good play by Tom Beaumont and Richard Hickman though the middle of the park.
Their domination paid off with Ben Beaumont netting a couple, taking him to the top of the scoring chart, having 4 goals this season in just 2 games.
Michael Drew was unlucky to not keep another clean sheet with Birdholmes Andy Brocklehurst scoring and also picking up man of the match.
This win keeps Puma Kings top of the table with a +8 goal difference after the first 2 matches.
