Sunday 21st December 2014
CSL Division 1
Maclay 7 (2) v Magpies Reserves 3 (2)
Scorers: B O’Connor (32min), B Gosling (45min), J Hart (60 & 85min), M Ashby (61 & 80min) & D Gavin (84min)

Magpies started this game impressively and were rewarded with a two goal lead after 20 minutes. Mus Hodja made a fine save from their first goal attempt in the 5th minute but a Magpies player pounced on the rebound to open the scoring. The second Magpies goal came from a well-worked corner fifteen minutes later.

Maclay’s central midfield partnership of Bevan Gosling and Conor O’Connor gradually brought the team back into the match and the introduction of last season’s Player of the Year; Adam Cowland helped things click as the team started to pass the ball well. BEN O’CONNOR brought Maclay back into the match after 32 minutes when he floated a long range free kick into the net. BEVAN GOSLING ended a spell of Maclay dominance in first half stoppage time when he fired home for the fifth Maclay match in a row. This meant it was 2-2 at half time and all to play for.

The introduction of JOSH HART at half time made an immediate difference and he popped up in the box to score from Cowland’s cross in the 60th minute. A minute later, MATT ASHBY converted a Cowland cross to put Maclay into a 4-2 lead. Magpies fought back immediately and scored a third goal. Maclay’s veteran keeper, Mus Hodja was replaced by Rob Prunty twenty mimutes from the end after turning in another solid performance in goal. Prunty handled everything that came his way well for the remainder of the game.

MATT ASHBY hammered home his 12th goal of the season in the 80th minute and was unlucky when another shot cannoned off the upright. DEAN GAVIN chipped the keeper for Maclay’s 6th goal in the 84th minute and JOSH HART slalomed through the Magpies defence for the final goal a minute later.

BEN O’CONNOR pipped Josh Hart for Man of the Match due to his impressive display across the whole 90 minutes.
