Chadderton Park JFC round-up

East Manchester Junior League - Sunday

Chadderton Park under-15s Lions progressed to the next round of the Sunday Primary Cup with a 9-4 win at home to Moston Reds.

Lewis North opened the scoring in the first half with a lovely volley and Kristian Walker doubled the lead minutes later.

Moston made it 2-1 when the Lions gave the ball away.

But it was soon 3-1 when North scored his second of the game with another great goal.

Two more errors by the Lions were punished by Moston to make it 3-3 at half time.

During the first 20 minutes the Lions were superb with both North and Walker completing their hat-tricks.

David Osiobe, Elliot Matthews and Dalton Martins put the Lions 9-3 in front.

Moston pulled another goal back with a late penalty, but the Lions finished comfortable victors.

Park’s under-12s Griffins crashed out of the Primary Cup, losing a penalty shoot-out after the game had finished 2-2 away at Elite Blacks.

The Griffins took the lead just before half time when Jack Howard slotted home.

A change of keeper at half time saw Jake Defton donning the keeper’s gloves and the Griffins started the second half with some good football.

After a nice piece of passing from the team, Harrison Cooper found himself with the ball in front of goal and he calmly slotted home to make it 2-0.

Unfortunately due to injuries the Griffins were low on numbers and the lads tired towards the end.

This led to a couple of mistakes which Elite Blacks punished to finish the game 2-2 and send it to the dreaded penalty shoot-out.

Some of the lads bravely stepped up to take a penalty.

However, the Griffins missed three out of four, while Elite Blacks scored three out of four to progress to the next round.
