BSU win first 11-a-side game in style. BSU 12 - 1 Keynsham Town Colts
Three hat-tricks on display
BSU started on the front foot and Owen Peacock and Jack Hewlett controlled the centre of the park as the home team experimented with a 3-5-2 formation.
The team pressed well early on and worked hard when in possession to attack quickly and to regain the ball within five seconds when out of possession.
Peacock struck first with a low shot from the edge of the box that trickled over the line. Asst Riley McDonagh.
It was soon doubled when four minutes later last season's golden boot Riley Humphries scored with a solo effort in the box.
Debut Signing Romeo Kazapua scored again two mins later. Asst. Humphries
Humphries scored again on seventeen minutes for Bradley Stoke United FC.
McDonagh then allowed his team-mate to hit his first-half hatrick with only a quarter of the game gone, Humphries scored his third with ease.
Vinnie Phelps was in danger-mode for the majority of the game, his crosses from wide areas on the right were impossible for the opposition to deal with and it was only a matter of time before one was converted; the keeper parried the cross to the feet of Humphries who grabbed his fourth of the day.
Bradan Hill, playing up a year, was substituted on twenty six minutes and took less than two minutes to mark his intentions for the season ahead. A one-on-one following a killer pass from Hewlett to split the defence saw the striker cooly finish past the on-rushing keeper.
Hill scored again soon after half time when Humphries played a nice pass through the visitors centre-backs, his looping shot over the keeper was perfect and dropped into the back of the net.
Humphries scores his fifth for Bradley Stoke United FC on fourth-five minutes. Asst. McDonagh
Peacock missed from the spot on fifty-three minutes after a high boot in the area resulted in a penalty.
Keynsham sprung into life after the penalty miss and some smart play saw both Captain Miles Stewart and Left Back Finlay Hood up against some excellent play on the counter-attack. James Williams rushed from his goal but the visitors finished well.
After a clever run down the left by Kazapua taking on and beating several players, a low he took looked to have scored but was tapped over the line to make sure by Hill for his debut hat-trick.
BSU then went on a rampage and with no fewer than seven players involved, Kazapua scored a superb team goal with some precision and beautiful passing football that left the defence chasing shadows. The spectators from both sides applauding the effort.
Debutte John O'Donaghue unselfishly set up the twelfth and final goal of the day after passing through to Kazapua for his third of the day.
MOTM Romeo Kazapua.
