St Nicks boys thump Imperial
Imperial Youth 0-5 St Nicholas FC under-13 boys
AN impressive performance saw St Nicks travel to Brislington for a thoroughly-deserved 5-0 win over Imperial Youth.
The first half saw St Nicks playing into the wind but they started the game brightly, playing some neat passing football.
Haydn Frost scored the opening goal of the game with a great finish but it seemed to galvanise the Imperial team and there followed a period of sustained pressure in the St Nicks half of the pitch as the hosts fought to get back into the game. The St Nicks defence and Jack Humphries in goal were able to deal with the threat and saw the half out.
Playing with the wind behind them in the second half, St Nicks took a firm grip on proceedings. Aaron Batey added to the scoreline about 10 minutes in and from then on it was pretty much one-way traffic, as St Nicks piled the pressure on their opponents. Just a few minutes later Jamie Dennis added a third goal to their tally and, although Imperial fought hard St Nicks were in no mood to be benevolent and in the next 10 minutes Stan Wyatt scored twice, to make the game safe.
