PEGASUS Royals Under-9s finished their league season in style with a six-goal salvo against Gosling Youth Blues.

The Royals won their final league game of the season 6-0 on Saturday.

Both teams made a positive start on a cold and windy morning.

Pegasus were soon dominating possession, despite some good football from the home team.

Henry Peters bore down on goal from the edge of the area to notch his first of the season to break the deadlock.

Oliver Harris doubled Pegasus' score soon after with a tap-in.

There were no further goals in the first half due to some spirited Gosling defending and some narrow misses.

A chilled Chester Davies was relieved in goal for the second half by James Davies, who saw little more action than his namesake.

He did make one neat save though from a strong shot by Gosling's Euan Higgins.

Two early goals settled the outcome. The first was a tap-in by James Wood and the second a shot from the edge of the area by Tom Meenan.

Man of the match James Wood proved as effective in defence as up front, taking the ball off the feet of attacking Gosling players more than once.

Henry Peters featured heavily in the closing stages.

A solo run on the right saw him cut inside to score his second of the game.

Another run right on the final whistle saw him play the ball to Oliver whose shot was deflected in by Chester for his first goal of the season.
