Bransty seize the opportunity given
Last updated at 12:55, Thursday, 29 November 2012
JUST like last week’s match against Maryport, Celtic B U11s got off to a bad start, gifting Bransty the opening goal.
From a corner Celtic looked to put the ball out of play only to fire the ball into their own net. Bransty then went two up from a good Thomas Houghton back post header.
Celtic were battling hard just to stay in the game, but when a quick throw found its way to Jake Bonney, he rode a couple of tackles before drilling the ball into the Bransty net.
Now at just 1-2 down Celtic were giving it a go and more battling got the ball to Bonney again. Shrugging off tackles Bonney lifted the Bransty net for a second time to level the scores to take the teams in 2-2 at half time. After the break a good passing move down the right and a great strike by Houghton put Bransty back in front 3-2.
Bransty then extended their lead when a ball that should have been cleared by Celtic was poked in from close range by Houghton. Now 4-2 down Celtic were more often than not on the back foot as Bransty ran the wings and passed the ball well. From a free kick, a speculative strike by Bonney was not dealt with and found its way into the Bransty net.
Jake Bonney gave his usual none stop performance and got himself a hat trick and was voted Celtic’s MoM.
Not to be outdone, Bransty’s Thomas Houghton got a hat trick and was also voted their MoM .

A HARD game in heavy conditions saw Bransty prevail.
An early mix up in the Celtic defence saw Zack Williams pounce for a simple tap in. After that chances were created at either end.
Sam King battled hard for the greens and James Bell tried his hardest as ever but it was Bransty who forced the second goal with a lovely finish from Callum Jackson.
Celtic had no subs but stuck to their task and when James was tripped outside the box Robert Davidson curled the ball into the top corner.
