Halesowen Power League Mayors Tournament Friday 19/05/2017

It was a very wet evening in Lye for the Mayors tournament held at Halesowen Power League.

Hartshill Strollers were drawn in a mixed group of teams including:

Friends of Alfie Johnson, Star G, Walk of Shame and SEC.

Each game was 10 minutes long with 5 minutes each way.

Hartshill team players:

Kevin Weston, Phil Bate, Andie Lissemore, Rob Dunning, Steve Edwards, John Moore, Archie Jones, Paul Roche.

Manager: Bernie Bustin.

Game 1

Hartshill 4 – 0 Friends of Alfie.

This was an excellent, quite an easy start for Hartshill, with the Friends of Alfie having to “borrow” a goalie, they were no real match for the boys from Hartshill.

Goal scorers: Rob Dunning 1, Kevin Weston 1, Phil Bate 2.

Game 2

Hartshill 2 – 4 Star G

This was a more competitive energetic game, with Hartshill having to work a bit Harder to score goals and defend. With a slightly dodgy 3rd goal going to Star G on the back of a foul.

Goal scorers: Rob Dunning and Steve Edwards.

Game 3

Hartshill 3 – 3 Walk of Shame

Hartshill did well to hold their own against the younger lads from Walk of Shame, it was quite a tense game as Hartshill went 1 nil up, 2 – 1 down and resulted in the 3-3 draw.

Goal scorers: Phil Bate 1, Rob Dunning 1, Andie Lissemore 1.

Game 4

Hartshill 4 – 2 SEC

Hartshill went in to the last group game knowing that they had to win, if they were going to go through to the semi finals.

Goal scorers: Kevin Weston 2, Steve Edwards 2.

Hartshill scored a decent amount of goals throughout their 4 games, 13 to be exact and Bernie did an excellent job of managing the team and subs. However it was unfortunate that the tournament was cut short with the cancellation of the semi final.

Well done to everyone that played throughout in the cold and rain all in aid of charity.
