Slick City go on a goal spree against battling Brislington
DESPITE strong performances from both keepers, Brislington Juniors were completely overwhelmed as Will Gould netted four times for league leaders Bristol City JSC in a comfortable aggregate victory.
City began brightly with Callum Eastwood forcing a good save out of Ben Williams, before Jack Jones' low left-footed shot across goal bounced off the post after he was found by Ben Hawkins.
A minute later, the visitors had the lead when Jones' short through ball caught the Brislington defence flat-footed, allowing Hawkins to dart in off the left wing and fire it into the top corner.
Brislington then created a rare chance when Ashley King and Jed Tregidgo linked up nicely on the counter-attack. But after cutting inside to beat Hawkins, Tregidgo poked his effort straight at Harvey Cook.

The visitors continued to threaten the Brislington goal, Luke Townsend firing narrowly wide with a speculative bicycle kick from a Jones corner, before Eastwood was again denied by Williams.
Within 30 seconds of the restart, City doubled their lead after Townsend found Eastwood, who turned on the halfway line and surged forward before knocking the ball right to Dixie, and the winger drilled it past Williams and into the bottom corner.
Brislington then managed to claw a goal back. Albin Steven picked the ball up and as he approached the box he skilfully scooped it up and over the advancing Cook. While his effort thudded against the bar, the rebound fell straight to King who tucked it neatly in at the near post to make it 2-1.
The hosts couldn't capitalise on their change of fortune, though, and soon found themselves further behind when they allowed Townsend to pick up a loose ball 20 yards from goal and smash it beyond Williams.
Sam Cook linked up superbly with Jones again before this time slotting the ball past Williams and home to extend the lead. And, seconds later, Eastwood made it 5-1 after Josh Price won possession for City from the kick-off. Eastwood still had a lot to do as he neatly jinked his way past three players before driving the ball low past Williams from the edge of the box.
Two minutes from time, Steven managed to force another save out of Harvey Cook after a strong run down the left, forcing the City keeper to concede a corner. The ball was swung in by Steven and beat Cook as the keeper slipped, sending it bouncing goalwards after hitting the shins of Ben Cogzell. But the City defender was alert and just managed to prevent the ball from crossing the line by lunging and hooking it clear.
Right on full-time Jones made it six for City after latching on to a rebound off the post from a Sam Cook shot and sliding the ball into the net.
The second game started in almost identical fashion to the first, City taking the lead just 90 seconds in. Great build-up play down the right involving Will Gould, Finnley Freeman and Callum Gould resulted in the ball being played inside to Reece Hedges, who wrapped his right foot around it and swept the ball past James McNama.
Will Gould then came close to doubling his team's lead twice in quick succession, first being denied by the post after his thundering effort flew past McNama, before the Brislington keeper pulled off a fine save to keep out his powerful close-range header.
Fourteen minutes in, City finally made it 2-0 when Callum Gould ghosted in unmarked at the back post to turn in Hedges' superb corner.
Will Gould then had another two chances to make it three to City, when five minutes before half-time Brislington instead found the net.
Jay Cooper stole the ball off the dallying Hedges before steaming forward and unleashing a vicious shot which was well saved by Ryan Southern, but both Cooper and George Harper were following in and Cooper had the simple task of tapping in the rebound.
Soon after, Cooper broke free again down the right before testing Southern, but this time, with Harper and Harry Keen following in, the City keeper was able to hold on to the shot.
Straight from the second-half restart, City made their dominance pay as Charlie Parker provided the killer pass for Will Gould, who smashed the ball into the net from the edge of the box to make it 3-1.
A few minutes later, Will Gould grabbed his second when Brislington failed to clear the danger after Parker hit the post, allowing the big striker to work his way back into the box and slide the ball past McNama. Midway through the half, it was 5-1.
Jack Philips picked the ball up in the middle and went on a brilliant solo run, rounding three challenges before stabbing it beyond McNama, only for Parker to run in and tap the goal-bound ball over the line.
The goal seemed to spark a reaction from Brislington, who twice tested Southern.
Cooper forced a good diving save with his powerful effort towards the top corner before the City keeper was sharp off his line to smother Harper's strike after the forward was sent clean through on goal.
The visitors then went straight up the other end and scored as Greg Yarde found Will Gould unmarked at the back post with a pin-point 40-yard pass, and in stroking the ball into the bottom corner Gould completed his hat-trick.
Brislington hit back with a second goal 19 minute.
Keen found Cooper, who did well to get along the by-line and poke a shot goalwards, and although his effort was blocked by Southern, the ball fell out to Keen who stroked it coolly into the net for 6-2.
City didn't let up and in the final five minutes Freeman, Will Gould and Parker all netted to seal a 9-2 second-game success.
