Drifta 16's Scorpions outplay Jets
Great teamwork and performance by Drifta dominated the first half and proved too strong for the Cundletown Jets on Saturday June 1 at the Jets field.
Cody Howard's powerful strike was unable to be saved by the Jets' keeper, while a great corner cross from Beau Blanch provided a prefect opportunity for Kayden Schumann to take their keeper by surprise with a brilliant header into goals.
A great through ball from Aiden Coombes to Kayden Schumann had him hitting the net yet again. Moments before the half time whistle, Aiden Coombes made a solo run down the sideline, shooting diagonally from outside the box, with their keeper unable to get a touch to it. Jackson Scanlons never give up attitude in defence, along with Tristyn Beard and Isaac McClure kept Drifta with a clean sheet. Drifta came home with a comfortable 4-0 win, retaining their 3rd place on the ladder.
Drifta's next game is at home against competition leaders Tuncurry Black at 10.40am Saturday June 15.
