Another typical Waves showing in Three Cities League
WHEN Across The Waves Division 1 captain Matt Martin hears the words, typical Waves, shouted over the fence he smiles and shrugs the criticism off.
Because he knows a typical performance from his team means a win - like it did at the weekend in the Three Cities League with a 3-1 victory over United Park Eagles FC.
Martin said he was impressed with the team's effort after half-time when adjustments to the team were made. Fresh players were sent forward and the winning edge was found over United Park.
The victory sends Across The Waves to the top of the ladder and with both fixture games in the 2015 season against United Park Eagles played and won, it will take a few upsets to lose the minor premiership.
Callum Stitt, Joe Williams and Martin were the goal scorers for ATW, while United Park's Brenden Banks found the back of the net for his 20th goal of the Three Cities season.
Martin was full of praise for his team after the game but made mention of Williams, who was a stand out in the second half and added something special the already potent line up.
Brothers Aston Villa had a game to remember, and one to put other teams on notice with, when it beat Doon Villa 5-3 at Martens Oval.
The win could have been greater if it wasn't for a 10 minute patch coach Tim Lunnon described as simply, bad.
Villa had a few shots on goal hit the woodwork and a few others stopped in a passage of play where the hosts had the chance to dominate on the scoreboard.
Lunnon said the win was due to his players executing the game plan well and when Gareth Jones and Hayden Scarborough come back into the midfield his team should get stronger.
