Northern Storm vs. Westlawn Round 18

Well the regular season is now complete and the lads move onto the semi’s and are in some good form. The first half saw the Storm go ahead through a good goal from Paul Malith.  Paul’s took the correct option and had the shot and the shot had too much power for the keeper and it went through his hands into the back of the net for a 1 – 0 lead.  Westlawn kept the game up to the Storm and had an equaliser through a good shot just outside the box which beat the Storms goalkeeper Adrian Keegan.  Following this some great hussle by Brendon Myers to win the second phase header and provide a great ball for Daniel Aryjong to slot home to make it 2 -1.  Some good ball skills shown by Salvador Wamara allowed him to pass it to Brendon Myers who spotted Matthew Bennett coming from the clouds and once again Myers provided the assist for Bennett to slam home the storms 3rd goal from about 25 yards out for a 3 – 1 lead at half time.

The second half was dominated by the storm and through a lack of finishing and some poor options in front of goal no further goals were added.  Some good defensive work by Scott Tarlinton, Jayden Kachel, John Paul and David Poverello ensured the storms goalie Jordan Andrews was not tested in the second half.  Once again Enoch Marc, Cameron Jones, Marual Mangor and Daniel Harris all played their part to ensure the win and ensure Storm are back in form heading into the finals.

Our man of the match this week goes to Salvador for a solid game where he continually hassled the Westlawn defence and made some great defensive plays when required, well done mate. To all the storm supporters please come and support the guys during the semi finals as you support always helps lift the lads. Lets bring it home now!
