Kieran Jones, guesting for Xavi then saw his first shot go high, thanks to a deflection off Scott Elliott. Walters rocket of a shot go in and it's an easy 5-0 lead for Xavi. Scott pulled one back with the ball sliding in on Reid's right hand side and it's 5-1 with 9 minutes gone. Power was unlucky, when his strike hit the inside of the post and came back into play. The rules of Soccer Dome goals are no sound no goal! Power then won the ball in the corner of the pitch, passed it inside to McEntee who put the ball away and it's 6-1. Walters then saw two shots in quick succession saved by the groin area of Liam, which caused him some pain, but he saved them! Jones was luckier, when his hard shot went in to make it 7-1.
Changing the line up Ste Sendall then replaced Liam in goal for K2G. Sendall didn't last too long on the pitch though as he disputed a refereeing decision with Wayne, who initially sent him off for two minutes but due to a lack of self control, it ended up being a six minute sending off. This resulted in Liam going back into goal, but his team were now down to four men. Warham was in action quickly when he saved with his groin and was left in agony once again.
Power then picked the ball up and thanks to a rebound from his original shot he scores his second goal of the game. Elliott then saw his effort go high again. Botley was more successful with his attempt from the halfway area, going in off the left hand post and it's 8-2. McEntee scored a quick couple of goals, one from the right and another from the left, 10-2. Power followed this up with his hat trick. Jay Caine then passed the ball into Elliott who reduced the deficit to eight goals. Power wrapped up his scoring for the night with an attempt from the right hand side. Caine then scored a good goal, that Reid was expecting to go to her left but he placed it right, and it's now 12-4. McEntee then scored a further hat trick of goals with efforts from the right, the halfway line and running on to the ball, for the game to finish 15-4 to XD. MOM went to McEntee for his eight goals.
