 Shots On
 Shots Off

Full Time: Olympia 4-0 Clarence

90+3′ GOAL! 4-0! Undy smashes a ball into the back of the net, a centring ball to the top of the box fell into his path and he buries it. 

87′ Shot on! Wadawu is denied by Randall who makes a fantastic sprawling stop.

86′ Shot off! A quick free kick from Wadawu is belted by Cartwright, it deflects into the path of Undy who smashes it over the bar.

85′ Shot on! A long range free kick is nodded goalward by Bremner but it’s straight at Cole.

83′ GOAL! 3-0 Cartwright belts one home. A short corner is laid into his path by Ortmann and the big Cartwright smashes it with power. 

76′ Slice of Cheese! O’Neil snuffs out a counter attack with a wise decision to make a late challenge. Takes one for the team.

71′ Shot off! A dangerous corner from Price is headed wide of the mark by Burgess.

68′ Shot on! A cross is played into the box for Sklenar who nods it goalward but lacks purchase and is an easy save.

66′ Shot off! Reibel sends in a nice free kick which is headed wide by Stuart.

55′ Penalty shout! Little hacks down Bremner in the box, very stiff to not have gotten a penalty for that one.

50′ Sub- Allan for Leaman.

HALF TIME: Olympia 2-0 Clarence 

45+1′ Shot off! Bremner tries his luck from range but doesn’t really collect it properly and flies wide.

43′ Shot on! An Undy free kick from close range is straight at the keeper.

43′ Slice of Cheese! Bremner hacks down Mearns right on the edge of the area.

37′ Shot off! Stuart does well, storms into the box, beats Vandermey and fires it over the bar.

Clarence had a good 10 minutes or so but were unable to generate a chance from it.

36′ A Mearn’s free kick is headed goalward by Hill but it’s straight down the throat of Randall.

35′ Slice of Cheese! Dished out to Burgess, could be for the late challenge or perhaps for some dissent.

27′ Shot off! Hallard skies the free kick over the bar.

26′ Burgess brought down by Hill just outside the box.

25′ Clarence butcher it at the back allowing Bellini to race in on goal but he takes a heavy touch and Randall collects.

22′ GOAL! 2-0! Sklenar snaps Lewis with a sharp turn in the box and buries it into the bottom corner. Top class that! 

20′ Some lovely passing from the Warriors, Mearns slides it through to Undy who shoots, but without conviction and is comfortably saved by Randall.

16′ Save! Randall does well to make a top save, getting a hand on an Undy drive to tip it onto the crossbar from a powerful Undy shot.

12′ GOAL! 1-0 Bellini tracks down a ball well and keeps it in from crossing the byline, cuts it back to Sklenar who buries it.

10′ Slice of Cheese! Mearns flies on Naden and goes into the book.

10′ Save! Randall does well to deny Sklenar after a poor turn over at the back, the keeper had his angles covered well.

9′ First chance of the game has Mearns firing one on the turn just wide of the post.

7′ No chances early in this one, pretty cagey opening. Clarence have made some big changes with O’Neil partnering Lewis in defence, Naden in attack and Bremner back in midfield, the Warriors have Cartwright in a deep midfield role.
