Under 15s - Burton Junior Football League
League Cup 2nd Round.
Rocester Elkes Eagles 11 Rocester Juniors 0
REE took on Rocester Juniors in a local derby on Sunday morning and in the end ran out comfortable eleven-nil winners.
The game started very evenly with Rocester Juniors more than a match for an Eagles side who are currently unbeaten, in fact for the first fifteen minutes it could be argued that Juniors were more in command.
REE took the lead in the 23rd minute and quickly doubled that lead a minute later through Matt Redshaw, who nearly completed a quick fire hat-trick a minute later when his volley came back off the post. However he did complete his hat trick on 30 minutes when stroking the ball home.
No other goals followed in the first half as Eagles started to take the game to Juniors.
HT 3 : 0
The second half started a little like the first, but the Eagles soon took control and added two more goals through Sean Dunion, who scored in the 58th and 59th minutes.
Ross Bentley scored number six on 65, before Richard Greaves 66, and Chris Jones (his first for the club) on 68.
A 70th minute injury to goalkeeper Jessup resulted in Lee Mills having to go between the sticks for the first time, Jessup being hurt when he bravely came out and was involved in a clash with his own defender McCarron.
Eagles completed the scoring with goals from Redshaw again in the 84th minute, Joe Handforth 88, and Redshaw getting his fifth of the game in 89.
FT 11 : 0
Eagles now await the cup draw with baited breath. A tie against either Moira Woulds or Winshill Gold would be welcomed.
Next week Eagles are away to Walsall Premier League side FC Premier, in the Staffordshire Sunday Cup, kick off 14:00
