Maris Hat-Trick Blunts Blades

29 March 2014

George Maris was in piping-hot form against Sheffield United in the Reds' Under 18s clash at Oakwell Academy.

The striker scored all three goals in a 3-0 victory over their South Yorkshire rivals.

His first was an incredible strike just after the half-hour mark - coming from in front of the ball to latch onto Nana's lay-off and sweep into the roof of the net from 22 yards.

Maris made it two with a great individual effort, dashing past three defenders before tucking home a crisp left-foot finish just before half time.

On the hour, Maris peeled away from his man to latch onto Chadderton's clearance and loft over the 'keeper for his hat-trick.

The Under 18s are next in action on Saturday, away to Bristol City.
