12th February vs Hough End Griffins

Spartak in dominant form demolish Hough End

Following the recent good performances against top of the table sides, Spartak were looking to continue this form and get a win in order to catch up with the team above us. 

The game started slowly and Hough End were first to have chance on goal which Theo saved well.  This seemed to spark Spartak into life and from this point they dominated the game playing some really good football.  Joe back after sitting out last week was in fine form and causing lots of problems for the Hough End defenders.  Sam and Phoenix controlled the midfield well and provided great support in attack, as did Dan who got forward well in his role on the wing to make some great passes.  When Hough End did get forward Dylan and Adam ensured they were not given any easy shots on goal.  Spartak created several scoring opportunities but it was Phoenix who coolly fired home to give Spartak a well deserved 1-0 lead at the end of the first period.

The second period saw Phoenix take a turn in goal but this was a period in which he had very little to do as Spartak went on a goal scoring spree.  Sam now supported by Alice continued to dominate the midfield.  Dan and Joe playing as wingers got forward at every opportunity, and with Theo taking a turn out of goal playing as striker, Spartak caused problems for Hough End with every attack.  Two goals apiece for Sam and Theo, and one for Joe saw Hough End demolished and the game appear to be effectively won as Spartak took a 6-0 lead.

In the final period Spartak feeling relaxed with a 6-0 lead eased off the attacking pressure which gave Hough End some encouragement to get forward.  With Jack missing this week due to illness Spartak were forced to ask players to play in this period in positions which they are not familiar with and Hough End were able exploit gaps left by Spartak to score three goals.  Spartak already had the game won at this point but conceding three goals in this period gave the coaches a scare and was uncharacteristic given the superb performances in the first two periods.

Spartak really are building up momentum and confidence with some excellent recent performances.  We are starting games with the right attitude and making it difficult for the opposition to get into their stride.  Strong tackling, good passing and great teamwork is really making a big difference.  If we continue with this approach and look to take our scoring opportunities we can all look forward to lots of fun and wins in the second half of the season.
