Ellis guides Bayern to the summit

Two more goals from goal machine Adam Ellis plus one from joint-player-manager Alon Pinhas saw Bayern Mincha finish the weekend in top spot after beating the Pirates 3-1.

    In truth, while the game ended 3-1, it really could’ve gone either way, with both teams having chances and the score 0-0 after 60 minutes.

    It was an even first half, with the Pirates probably having the best of the chances to go in leading at the break. In truth, Joe Nyman was outstanding in goal and kept Bayern in the game at 0-0 with some exceptional saves as we could have easily fallen behind.

    Gavriel Nussbaum went closest for Bayern in the first half, as he did his best to miskick an open goal from two yards out from a Pinhas corner.

    At half-time Bayern changed the system to 4-4-2 as SHP's plans to man-mark Ellis during the first half were proving effective and the extra man up top would give them more to think about.

    An extra tactical switch to put Pinhas left-mid paid dividends as a through ball from Ellis played him in on the 60th minute as the winger ran in and coolly slotted into the bottom corner.

    Straw Hat came out of their shell in response to the goal, finally opening up more space for Bayern. Nyman made another super stop from a free kick  and in truth his performance warranted a clean sheet.

    A great move saw the returning Salter play in man-of-the-match Rafi Terespolsky down the right. He played in a delicious cross to Ellis to make it 2-0.

    The Pirates pulled one back with 10 to go with top-scorer Aron Gale finishing coolly past Nyman.

    However, Bayern returned to a rigid 4-5-1 to see out the game and caught the Pirates out in the last minute on the break as Ellis slotted home to secure the points.

    Bayern co-boss Daniel Holder told JC Sport: "We have a lot to thank Joe Nyman for the three points and what a huge three points it was to keep pressure on the Dons with the massive game against them next week."
