Day two of the Sparkasse & VGH Cup in Germany brought more success for Fulham’s Under-19’s as they took control of the group with two more convincing wins over local teams JSG Auetal-Altes Amt and JSG Ulsar/Solling.

Fulham went on to beat their first opponents JSG Auetal-Altes Amt 6-0, before putting another 6 past JSG Ulsar/Solling.

Ryan De Havilland opened the scoring for the Whites 54 seconds into the first match of the day, Djed Spence whipped a ball across the face of goal and from 5 yards out De Havilland dispatched it into the top of the net to break the deadlock. 

Spence went himself from long range two minutes later but his effort was blocked by a blue shirt. De Havilland pulled a ball back from Dan Martin at the edge of the area but he blasted over the bar.

In the next play however, Martin had a two on one but elected to drag the ball past the keeper and slotted to double the advantage.

Five minutes in, Nicolas Santos-Clase added to the score line, he played off the sideboards to himself, and with a step over the Auetal-Altes keeper was beaten for the third of the afternoon.

Six minutes in and Joe Felix won the ball in midfield, he sold his defender and put Reece York in wide, and he slotted for the fourth, grabbing his third of the tournament.

A minute later York tussled with the German’s defence in the corner, he managed to get the ball out for Santos-Clase, with more trickery he found York’s run who smashed it through the keeper to make it 5-0.

With the clock ticking down to four minutes left, Jayden Harris fired a couple of efforts on target but was denied by the keeper.

Tyrese Francois added the 6th as he ran in from sweeper keeper and shot hard and low from outside the area into the corner. 

Fulham’s second game against JSG Uslar/Solling was just as convincing, beating the local team 6-1.

In the fist minute Jaydn Mundle-Smith had a pop at goal, Santos-Clase collected the ball and tried a back flick through the keeper's legs, however a faint touch prevented a superb goal.

It took 80 seconds for Francois to score, like previous goals he brought the ball forward and shot hard at goal, it took a bit of a deflection on the way for the breakthrough.

Three minutes in Felix pulled a ball back to Francois and the Australian sent a ferocious shot for the corner but a strong save prevented him.

Felix in the next play however, smashed the ball into the back of the net right of goal, tight to sideboards to make it 2-0. 

The next few minutes were completely dominated by the Young Whites, all shooting on sight.

Felix scored Fulham’s third goal with three and a half minutes left on the clock after some intricate play with De Havilland.

JSG Uslar/Solling scored a consolation goal from within their own half as De Havilland at rush goalie was too far off his line to make the stop.

Harris soon pulled back the three goal advantage 20 seconds later, slotting a sweeping through ball past the keeper with a minute left to go to make it 4-1.

Jaydn Mundle-Smith wanted to get in on the action, without pressure in the final minute he slotted not one, but two goals after some quick passing from the Young Whites to secure a 6-1 victory, making it four wins out of four for the Young Whites.
