TERRIFIC TERRIERS TO GOOD FOR REDS
In a game that is always marked on the calendar at the start of the new season saw the Terriers get off to the best possible start thanks to a brace by striker Andy Klijn inside the opening minutes of the game. The Terriers wouldn’t stop there and continue to press high and create multiple chances within the first half, but the were unable to find the back of the net again, going into the break with a 2-0 advantage.
Once again, the Terriers started the second half just like the first after the ball found its way to the back post for an oncoming Ethan Hall who finished it off. With the Terriers in control of the game, coach Chris Ackerley turned to his bench, where he would inject the ever-threatening Tim Knight onto the pitch who made an immediate impact scoring a brace in a matter of minutes. It was then midfielder Blake Silvers who found himself face to face with the goalkeeper and slotting it past him to make it six for the Terriers. The scoring wasn’t done there though, as once again potent striker Tim Knight found himself with the ball at his feet and slotting it past the keeper to make it seven for the terriers, three for himself and round off an impressive display by the terriers.
Once again, our reserve grade boys continued their run of form with a blistering start to the game going into the sheds at half time two to the good. They terriers also didn’t take a backwards step scoring another four in the second to cap off a clinical display at both ends of the field.
Under 21s after a good start and a missed penalty in the first half saw the terriers go into the sheds at the half time break all level. The boys started the second half on the front foot grabbing an early goal thanks to Mitch Wallace to put the terriers in front. The lead wouldn’t last long though as the Terriers were brought back to level terms with ten minutes to play after a nice finish from the Entrance striker. But the terriers pushed on to find a winner and did just that thanks to a thunderbolt strike from Mitch Wallace which found the top corner and then also completing his hattrick minutes later to help the terriers get their first win of the season.
U21s – 3-1 (Mitch Wallace x3)
RESERVE GRADE – 6-0
FIRST GRADE – 7-0 (Tim Knight x3, Andy Klijn x2, Ethan Hall, Blake Silvers)
