MATCH REPORTS

 

Peninsula Stars 2 Glenavon Hawks 6

 

After an impressive win last week, the Stars were trying to keep this going but were playing a very strong Hawks team. The game started quite evenly with both teams playing the ball around nicely. Against the run of play Glenavon took the lead, but the Stars didn’t let their heads go down and continued to try and play football. James F was marshalling his defence well at the back and making some important clearances. His defensive partner Gary was also making some important clearances and playing some superb balls down the channels for the very lively Alex to keep running at the Hawks defence. Luke was his usual self getting involved all over the pitch. Jake playing upfront was using the ball well and making a nuisance of himself, the Hawks defence could not cope with him when he had the ball. Due to a lack of concentration at times the Stars fell further behind but again kept on working. After a good team talk at half time the boys came out second half with a point to prove and began moving the ball well and it wasn’t long before Jake pulled a goal back with a lovely finish on his right foot, that’s two in two for the big man upfront. This had the Hawks rattled and Luke was growing into the game more and starting to have more of an influence testing their keeper with some lovely shots from distance. However as the Stars were pushing forward the Hawks managed to grab a couple more goals, using their experience when needed. Again the boys continued to push on looking to get something, James F was moved into midfield and got a cracking goal his performance deserved. The score did not really do our boys justice but they took plenty away from the game and know where they need to work on in training.
Man of the match (chosen by opposition) 9 Luke

 

Peninsula Stars 1 FC Spartans 4

Though the score line reflects a big win for the Spartans the game was much closer than it suggests. There were a number of outstanding performances, with Jake catching the eye upfront with his work rate and Luke with with his set pieces, not to mention his goal from a free-kick. We also hit the bar twice and did not have the run of the game with the ball bouncing on the line and away to safety. Any other day these would have been a goals. We must not forget there were number of new players in the team and there first competitive game together. They battled to the end and never gave up and this bodes well for the rest of the season.

Man of the match – 5 Jake  (Chosen by opposition)

 

Peninsula Stars 1 Beechwood Falcons 0

With the Stars given a bye in the cup it was a league game for them. The boys started well and were passing the ball nicely creating chances and testing the keeper. The scores were level at the break but the Stars were looking the more likely to score. James F played well at the back and snuffed out any threat from the Falcons. Eventually the goal came courtesy of Jake upfront who shrugged off an earlier miss to bury a fantastic shot past the Falcons keeper who had been very vocal prior to that. Josh had a superb long range effort go just inches over the bar. The game finished 1 nil to the Stars who got their first 3 points of the season to move them up the league, along with their first clean sheet.

Man of the match (chosen by opposition)  Luke 9

 

Penninsula Stars 2 v Glenavon Eagles 1


After an impressive win against phoenix in the last round of the cup, the boys faced tough opponents Glenavon Eagles in the quarter finals. Despite muddy conditions the boys took control of the game with many chances and soon opened the dead lock with a impresive looping goal from Luke which left the goal keeper flat footed. The boys had the Eagles rattled as their second goal soon followed with a great strike from James F who looked great pushing forward. After a change of boots for Jake the lone striker came close to making it three when he narrowly hit the post also with a driving shot from Gary hitting the side netting. The boys came out in the second half with a storming start like the first but the Eagles carried on attacking with Alex making some superb tackles and throwing his body on the line he is like the stars very own leighton baines the Eagles managed to get a well deserved goal back. All the boys played brilliant and it was an action packed game, lets hope we can take this performance into the semi finals. Good look to all the boys!

Man Of The Match: Jake Horan 5 (Chosen By Opposition)
