East Coast Juniors coast to victory


East Coast Juniors under 14s welcomed Market Rasen for their last game of this year, played in windy and cold conditions.

Coast settled well knocking the ball about and with the midfield of Palmer, Binch, Hawkins and Redford winning most of the 50-50 challengers, the front two of Raistrick and Godson had a couple of early chances that was saved by Rasen keeper.

Three slick moves by coast and good finishes by Godson and two from Raistrick sent Coast in at half time 3-0.

Second half with the wind against Coast, they played nice channel balls and kept it on the floor for long periods.

With the lively Rasen supporters trying to get behind their team, some of the tackles got mistimed resulting in a Rasen player being yellow carded.

Coast capitalized on the situation well and Godson scored to make it 4-0.

More pressure from Coast resulted in the impressive Raistrick completing his hat-trick with a nice finish across the keeper to make it 5-0 and taking the match ball home with him.

Coast break up for Christmas and New Year and report back in January.

Coast: Brookes, Webb, O’dare, Jevons, Maye, Palmer, Hawkins, Binch, Redford, Raistrick, Godson. Used: J Redford, Burton, Harmer.
