Under 15s - Burton Junior Football League - Friel Homes Division One.
Rocester Juniors 0 Rocester Elkes Eagles 5
Eagles travelled to Ryecroft on Sunday hoping for victory against local rivals Rocester Juniors.
As is normal in this fixture Rocester Juniors started the better and took the game to a nervy looking Eagles rearguard, but chances were though few and far between..
Eagles broke up field and took the lead through Ross Bentley in 9 minutes, but the setback didn't deter Juniors from chasing the play and pressurising the Eagles defence.
It wasn't until Bentley doubled Eagles lead in 28 minutes that Eagles started to relax, and Jeremy Redlar scored number three for eagles in 31 minutes to wrap up the scoring in the first half.
HT 0 : 3
The second half was more comfortable for Eagles as they controlled the pace of the game, playing fluent passing football.
Lee Mills scored number 4 in 55 minutes, leaving Matt Redshaw to complete the scoring in 70 minutes.
FT 0 : 5
Team: M.Jessup; G.Sucksmith; M.McCarron; M.Sanders; J.Redlar; H.Coley-Fisher; B.Price; A.Johnson; S.Dunion; R.Bentley; M.Redshaw. Subs( All Used) L.Mills; R.Greaves; C.Jones; J.Handforth.
This result leaves Eagles one win away from the BJFL U15 Division 1 title.
