Rayne Youth Eagles 6 Maldon & Tiptree Pumas 1
After a few disappointing results of late, Rayne started off today’s game with majority of the ball pressing Maldon from the off. Rayne’s first goal came when they broke with some good midfield passing and a lovely toe punt long shot from Harry Rolfe curling the ball into the net…1-0.
Rayne, despite some good possession struggled to score and it was a good goal from Maldon chipping the ball just over Ollie Jones’ head that leveled the score. This then pushed Rayne to dig deep and it wasn’t long before Caden Vine chipped one over the Maldon keeper’s head making it 2-1. With minutes to go before half time Harry Rolfe scored his second of the match.
Half Time 3-1
Rayne got another goal early on in the second half with Lee Fullgrabe pouncing on a loose ball in the penalty area, determined to put it in the back of the net….4-1 to Rayne. Josh Jones then volleyed the ball from 25 yards securing a 5th goal and with Harry Rolfe sealing his hat trick with a superb curled effort into the top corner making it 6-1.
Despite Maldon’s effort there was no way back and an outstanding performance from Rayne Eagles saw them take a well deserved 3 points.
