Week 2 - Saturday 13 May
Pulteney 2nd XI defeated Rostrevor 10-1
On a gorgeous mid-May Saturday morning, the Pulteney 2nd XI Soccer team kicked off season 2017 at home against Rostrevor College.
After some positive and fun initial training sessions, we were all looking forward to making a good start to the season and using the first game as a launch pad.
From the outset, I was tremendously impressed with the energy levels, skills and overall determination that the lads obviously possess. The first goal from Luka Amorico after a lovely assist from Kon Piliouros set the tone for the day. Tom Katisdonis and Lloyd Pope dominated the midfield and Daniel Calderisi and Alex Young both showed promise before succumbing to unfortunate but non-serious injuries. Most impressive was the composure, structure and determination of the back four of Mitchell Bender, Alistair Porter, Nick Nayler, Josh Dunstan and expert keeping from Ben Cahill. All great teams begin with solid defence and match day one bodes well for a long season.
With the likes of Jake Goehr, Lewis Suttie and Harrison Grasso also running riot in attack, the Pulteney Boys dominated. Highlights were aplenty, with the Pope 25 yard rocket a joy to watch and a Grasso finish that demonstrated great urgency. A dream start – Go Pulteney!
Best: Luka Amorico, Lloyd Pope, Tom Katsidonis, Jake Goehr, Mitchell Bender
Goals: Luka Amorico 3, Lloyd Pope 3, Jake Goehr 1, Harrison Grasso 1, Lewis Suttie 1
