Hacton 5-1 St Mary's

The Hacton boys made a confident start to their season with a convincing 5 – 1 win away to St Mary’s. From the first whistle Hacton dominated possession and pinned the opposition into their own half, creating a good number of goal scoring opportunities. Eventually the pressure paid off as Owen fired a ball into the penalty area for JJ to guide the ball home. Surprisingly, after all the chances they had created, Hacton went into half time only 1 nil up.

The second half continued with an ambitious Hacton team looking to increase their lead. 5 minutes into the half, JJ doubled the lead as a slick passing move from Hacton left him with an easy tap in. However, out of the blue the home team caught the Hacton boys on the counter attack and clawed a goal back. Unfazed, the Hacton boys kept their composure and restored their 2 goal lead with Taylor B coolly steering the ball home. Two more goals followed in quick succession as Hacton truly found their scoring touch. Owen had a driven shot from the edge of the area that fired past the goalkeeper and Alfie completed the impressive display with another commanding finish from inside the penalty box. The final scoreline reflected the dominance of the boys’ performance and they can take confidence from the win into the rest of the season.
