THE Stars’ Seniors team were in charge from the start against Lang Lang at the weekend.
San Oo was the first scorer of the mark, speeding on to a neat through ball, to slot the ball past the Lang Lang keeper.
Playing one twos, the Stars kept possession and cut through the Lang Lang midfield like a hot knife through butter.
Gene Parini found Barry Farrell, who stretched a toe out to flick the ball in to the path of Adam Bell, who hit the ball on the volley from outside the area leaving the keeper no chance.
Another goal from San Oo and the Stars went in to the second half three nil up. Two more in the second half, one for Ethan Tomas and a third for San Oo after Stars’ centreback and coach Denis Landron set him up after a great run in to the box, winning 5-0.
Inverloch got off to a great start against Lang Lang, with the away team leading 3-0 very early in the first half.
Inverloch kept up their strong attack and quickly added another two goals to the board.
An injury early on to an Inverloch player left the side with only ten players but that didn’t stop their strong attack or knock their confidence, quickly adding more goals to the tally. By half time, Inverloch held a convincing 10-0 lead.
Lang Lang put up a great defence to try and prevent the visiting team adding to their goal tally. But Inverloch scored two more goals in quick succession, taking home the victory 12-1.
The Stars started well and scored first through Mark Farmer in a frenetic first 30 minutes.
Blake Edwards had a great game and was a constant threat down the right hand side. It was even at half time, as the second half became a game of ariel ping pong with neither team able to take a chance when it fell.
It looked like a draw was on the cards but in the dying minutes a hoof in to the box found a Stars defender’s arm and the referee pointed to the spot.
Even the post couldn’t save Inverloch, the penalty rebounding to the Lang Lang striker who squeezed it past the Stars’ keeper.
