Ormer FC continued their fine form in the UK with a win over one of Arsenal’s development sides from Dorset. The Ormers won their second match in succession, at the sun drenched Canford Park Sports Arena.
The Blue and whites of Ormer FC played the first quarter at a fast tempo, that the boys from Dorset struggled to get to grips with. Ormer showed their intent from the very first whistle and it did not take long to break the deadlock. Ben Stevens set up Finley Du Port who fired across the Arsenal keeper Willian Butler, with the ball seemingly going in, Keene Domaille made sure with a toe end, 1.0 Ormers.
The second was not far behind, as the Ormers cranked up the pressure. Alex Roussel clearly in the mood to impress skipped past two defenders and curled a sumptuous ball into Du Port, who slotted it home with ease (2.0). An Arsenal defender tried to dribble across his box, but the quick reacting Domaille pounced and robbed him of the ball, before drawing Butler out and sliding the ball into the bottom corner (3.0). The second quarter was very much the same theme as the first, with Ormer playing some great football and putting Arsenal under pressure with their movement. The next goal was assisted by the electric heeled Brandon Wallace, who burned his marker down the line and sent over a cross to Joe Adams, he pulled the ball out of the air and with an abundance of composure side footed into the roof of the net (4.0).
Ormer Keeper Jack Hamon had to be on his toes, as he reacted quickly to thwart the Arsenal striker Brad Dunnings-Bascombe. Domaille was becoming a thorn in Arsenal’s side and it was an unbelievable pass between a packed midfield, that Domaille found Adams, again Adams was calm and flicked it past the unprotected Butler (5.0). The lively Adams then turned provider for man of the match Domaille, Adams hit a stinging shot that Butler could only push into the path of the grateful Domaille, who blasted home from close range for his hat-trick (6.0).
Things did not get any easier for the home team, as the Ormers continued to threaten throughout. Du Port hit the bar and Domaille also rattled it twice as the pressure kept coming. The ever reliable Roussel was at it again, as his excellent run was only matched by his pin-point pass to Stevens, who killed to ball dead and finished sublimely into the top corner (7.0). Another goal came within seconds of the restart, the hardworking Adams quickly feed Stevens, who cut inside his man and slotted home for his brace (8.0). This time it was Roussel’s shot that was well saved by the Butler, again he did not stand a chance of stopping the rebound, as Adams rammed home for his well-earned hat-trick (9.0).
The fourth quarter was much less eventful, as both teams had put so much into the first three quarters. There was still time for Du Port to cut in off the right flank and pull the ball back for Ormers impressive defender Jamie Smith, who finished like a true striker (10.0). The Ormers will not so much reflect on the result, but more of how they got it. This was a great team performance, with one touch passing and every team member played their part. Next up for Ormer FC is an away match against Oxford City, which will be played at The Oxford City FC Stadium 12.30 kick off next Saturday.
