The second half saw Navy’s change their formation, with Archie taking over in goal and Poulters playing in defense. Brookesy, in a more forward position, made numerous lung-busting runs into the opposition’s half, but the Moors managed to level the score. Dunners, who had an excellent morning with two assists, darted forward and finished, putting Navy’s back in the lead.

Archie’s superb positioning and saves maintained Navy’s advantage, and they sealed the game. Poulters initiated and concluded a fantastic Navy’s move, celebrated by players, coaches, and parents alike. James completed his hat-trick with a remarkable strike.

The Moors did manage to pull one back, but it proved to be a mere consolation as Solihull Navy triumphed. This victory sets them up nicely for their upcoming double-header in the cup, continuing their impressive start to the season.
