Shaw the “Mayne” man as PA hit a dozen away from home

On Tuesday 7th February, the Year 9 Football team put on a goal bonanza as they defeated Cuthbert Mayne in emphatic fashion to record their second win a week

Fresh after an important victory in round 3 of the Devon cup, the team travelled to Cuthbert Mayne as they looked to build upon their recent fine form with another victory, this time against much
more local opposition

The team started the game well, and took the lead early on thanks to a piledriver effort from long range by centre back Sonny Parsons, and it was the same player who doubled his own and his team’s tallies soon after with another excellent strike to make the score 2-0 to PA within the first 15 minutes.

Having already scored two super goals throughout the first half, the game continued to look like a
“goal of the month” competition as the half drew on, as captain Logan Aston made the score line 3-0
with a sumptuous free kick that arrowed it’s way into the top corner of the Cuthbert Mayne net.
The fourth Paignton goal may not live in the memory when compared to the previous three of the
game, however Harley Hooper certainly did not mind as he bundled the ball into net to extend the
PA lead to 4-0 at half time

As the second half started, the boys in blue knew that knew that they needed to keep the intensity
high to not allow their opposition any chance of getting back into the game, and the team’s positive
start to the second half saw them build upon their lead further

Top goal scorer Jonah Shaw registered the fifth goal with a firmly drilled effort before Hooper
extended the PA goal tally to half a dozen with another well-placed effort to make the score 6-0.
The seventh and eighth Paignton goals went the way of the prolific Shaw with the third goal of his
impressive hat trick proving a particular highlight, as he rode three robust tackles before sliding the
ball into the net – 8-0!

PA were however not done there, as they continued to flood forward in the hope of developing an
even healthier lead

Dylan Stickley was the next player to get his name on the scoresheet after some relentless pressing
from the Paignton front line saw the ball break to him in the Cuthbert Mayne area, and the forward
drilled the ball home to make the score 9-0

The team refused to settle for nine, and another well placed finish from captain marvel, Aston, saw
them hit double figures for the first time as a team as they secured an incredible ten goal lead going
into the final quarter of the game

The final two Paignton goals proved to be ground-breaking moments for the team, with two players
registering their first ever goals for the Academy

Centre back Elliot Osman made the score 11-0 as he finished another well worked Paignton move
like a cultured striker to register his first goal in Paignton colours, before Jack Glover matched the
feat of his fellow defender by drilling the ball home to make it a perfect dozen for the PA boys
As the final whistle went, the team were able to celebrate a truly emphatic win which gives them
great confidence going into next week’s Devon cup showdown with Eggbuckland Community College
