Tollesby  8  1  SHILDON

Scorer – Jack Mortimer

Man of the Match – Cain Smith

The U13’s travelled to Middlesbrough, to face a Tollesby team who had beaten them 5-4 only a couple of weeks ago.  From the start, Shildon were on the back foot with Tollesby working hard in midfield.  The first clear chance though fell to Shildon, when Noah McCourt broke on goal, but the keeper managed to parry the ball to safety.  On 15 minutes, Tollesby took the lead with a well worked goal.  2 minutes later, a Shildon break up the left wing resulted in a great cross which Chloe Geary managed to latch on to, only for the woodwork to save the home team.  On 22 minutes, with defender Cain Smith off the field with an injury, Tollesby took advantage and doubled their lead.  5 minutes later it was 3-0.   On 35 minutes, Shildon hit the post again, when McCourt hit a great shot. 

In to the second half, and Tollesby extended their lead further on 37 minutes, and went 5-0 on 45 minutes.  A couple of minutes later, Shildon hit the woodwork again, then had an effort cleared off the line.  On 56 minutes, the hosts hit their 6th of the game, before Jack Mortimer finally got the Shildon team on to the score sheet.  In the last couple of minutes Tollesby scored another 2 against a dispirited team.

Hat Trick Hopwood fires Shildon again

Scorers  – Kane Hopwood (3)

Man of the Match – James Rusby

Shildon continued their good form this season with a convincing display against good opposition.  Starting brightly Shildon took the lead after 5mins when a good through ball by James Rusby saw Kane Hopwood thump a right foot shot in the top corner.  Continuous pressure saw Shildon double the lead after good approach work and a fine one two with Jacob Race, Kane Hopwood scored from close range.  With Shildon well in their stride they started to dominate and just before half time Hopwood completed his hat trick with a strong left foot shot just inside the penalty area. The 2nd half wasn’t as impressive but overall another squad performance from all Shildon players making an impact.

The 2nd hat trick of the day was by Ben Hopper in the friendly!

Man of the Match – Aiden Kirtley

Shildon played extremely well against a well organised and skilled opposition.  It was an open game in the first half, with both teams creating chances.  After 10mins Shildon came close to taking the lead with a strong shot from the corner by James Rusby which hit the bar.  Just before the end of the 1st half, good passing from the midfield put Kane Hopwood through on goal and finished well to the bottom corner.

The second half started much the same as the first with both teams pushing forward.  Shildon began to gain the upper hand as the game progressed and with 1 min left a brilliant shot by Ellie Geary was somehow headed off the line.

An excellent team effort once again by all players.

Guisborough Town  2  3  SHILDON

Scorers  – Noah McCourt (2) Jack Mortimer (1)

Man of the Match – Chloe Geary

The Under 13’s travelled to Guisborough, and came away with a great 3-2 win.  On a tight pitch, most of the game happened in a congested midfield area, and from a through ball from midfield, Noah McCourt opened the scoring for Shildon on 10 min with a fine right foot shot.  On 13 minutes, Noah doubled the advantage with another clinical finish.  On 20 minutes Jack Mortimer increased the lead following up after a good save from the keeper.  A minute later, Guisborough reduced the arrears to 3 1, which was the half time score.

In to the second half, and the game became more of a midfield battle.  Guisborough squandered a couple of chances whilst Shildon had a number of chances to wrap the game up, but good goalkeeping kept the score down.  With 3 minutes to go, Guisborough set up a grand finish when they pulled a goal back, but Shildon managed to see the match out, to record their 4th victory of the season.

The Man of the Match award went to Chloe Geary for a fine performance, especially in defence, with some great tackling and non stop running.
