Aldershot 3 – 8 Galaxy
Eight goals from Galaxy saw them top Group 14 in the ‘JPL Cup U15’ as they ripped apart a physical Aldershot side in an absorbing encounter at the Alderwood 3G ground.
It was Aldershot who was first out the blocks, dominating midfield as Galaxy looked to be experimenting with different lineup today. They took advantage from a low bouncer corner that wasn’t cleared, rebounded off of Jasper into the path of the Aldershot player to tap home 1-0.
However, Galaxy responded soon after when CK picked up the ball on the edge of the area, slotting a low shot past the outstretched keeper, into the bottom left 1-1.
Charlie made it 1-2 soon after the start of the second quarter with a typical shot from a striker in form, CK who clearly had his shooting head on, struck another well-placed goal into the back of the net 1-3.
Charlie not having CK outscore him produced one of his classic goals into the bottom left 1-4.
Not wanting to be left out Leon struck another after a scuffle in the area 1-5 which was shortly followed by a goal from Aldershot after a misplaced Galaxy header gifted their striker a one on one which was taken well. Half-time 2-5.
The third quarter turned into a more physical affair with the tackles flying in hard and fast from both sides but it was the Aldershot player booked for a late tackle on Shay, but not before Galaxy’s super-sub Jerrah’s breakthrough, with a stunning volley which flew into the back of the net 2-6!
Aldershot looked a beaten team in the final quarter. Jerrah stood up once again to bury his second after some lovely build up play and slick passing from Galaxy 2-7.
The icing on the cake was from Shay who produced a sweetly struck left footed strike from 20 yards out, which riffled the top left corner of the net 2-8.
Galaxy then decided to go on an extra summer holiday! Taking their foot off the gas, allowing a well constructed move from Aldershot to slot in a consolation goal 3-8.
