Jade Tree united met ATM United away at the PAL Center on Sunday, January 21 for a late lunchtime kick off.

Jade Tree has appeared impressive lately, losing only once in their five previous games. The team looked to continue their stunning form this season with a win over ATM United.

But it was not easy going initially as Jade Tree looked wobbly in the first half, though Ryan Mann continued his form by scoring in the opening minutes and putting Jade Tree up 0-1.

However, the Jade Tree defense was beaten soon after and ATM tied up the game.

Jade Tree then made its first substitution of the match in order to secure a win.

Alfredo Agra came on and pounded in a scorcher of a goal that gave spark to a JTU team that had started stiff and sloppy.

Ryan Mann then nicked the ball from the ATM forward and ran up the field avoiding all attempts to strip him of the ball. With a solid volley from mid-field, Mann put Jade Tree up 3-1.

Alex Milne came on to the pitch and immediately made an impact. His left footed shot flew above the keeper’s head and hit the back of the net. Milne rounded the pitch with a celebration dedicated to his newborn daughter who was watching from the stands.

Goalie Brian Olden made several saves, but was mostly untested for the first half.

As the half wound down, Victor Alvarez received a vicious tackle that left him with a twisted ankle. Alvarez was removed from the field and replaced by Mike Leyva.

Leyva was quick to make his mark, as he dribbled the ball up the sideline, juking the ATM defense and eventually hitting the target just outside the box and pushing the score to 1-5 at the break.

Returning from the half, Jade Tree United was visibly bolstered by the score line. Instead of sitting back, JTU continued to be aggressive, with Ryan Mann netting his hat trick for the day.

Victor Alvarez reappeared on the pitch. Alvarez, though clearly affected by the tackle in the first half, was still quick enough up front to receive a pass from Alex Milne and convert it into his first of the match.

Casey Gallucio then ended a 12-hour scoring drought with a kick into the upper left corner of the net. Gallucio, having finally made his mark this season, quickly followed up with his second goal, receiving a pass from Milne that easily beat the keeper.

In the 15th minute, Al Agra had a goal disallowed after converting a corner kick from Ryan Mann. Apparently, Mann had taken the corner before the whistle, though reviews of the match later showed that the goal should have been allowed to stand.

Victor Alvarez got his second of the day as he sent a hard shot into the net.

Agra was back in play with an assist to Alex Milne, who simply put it past the keeper who was glued to the spot.

ATM was finally able to get through the mid-field for their second of the day, but it came to late in the game to make a difference, as Jade Tree United won 2-11.

Jade Tree is now solidly in second place behind the unbeaten Gunners. Jade Tree will face some serious challenges as they play three top five teams in as many games.

Jade Tree United’s next match is February 3 home against third placed Valley Strikers and proves to be one of the games of the season.

Jade Tree United returned to the PAL Center on Sunday, January 14 for a match against Barclays FC.

Once again fielding a depleted team, JTU looked in danger as the game began.

Quickly overcome by Barclays FC, Jade Tree was down 0-3 within five minutes and looking desperate.

JTU then made several substitutions and the game began its dramatic turnaround with a run of goals from the team.

First, Ryan Mann continued his run of form and scored one for Jade Tree.

Next, Alfredo Agra blasted the ball into the BFC net, helping to focus JTU’s mental game.

Alex Milne netted his first of the match with a solid shot that went high and to the right to put JTU level in less than five minutes.

As the match continued, Jade Tree continued their offensive with fervor.

Victor Alvarez added his name to the score sheet after receiving a pass from Milne and sinking the ball into the net.

Alex Milne dribbled to the brink of BFC’s net before releasing a scorcher that gave him his second of the match.

Ryan Mann added another to his tally with when the BFC goalie dropped the ball and Mann secured a rather easy goal from within the box.

JTU keeper Brian Olden took a controversial goal kick that landed in front of the BFC net. Ryan Mann than succeeded in poking the ball between the goalie’s legs, giving Jade Tree United a 7-3 lead as the match went into halftime and receiving a hat trick for his efforts.

At the beginning of the second half, Jade Tree clearly looked poised to continue their domination-and they did.

Victor Alvarez once again came forward from his defensive position to put away his second of the day.

Darren Walters came down the left side to overlap Mike Leyva and receive a pass from him before calmly left footing his first goal of the season.

Leyva than scored his first of the match, beating two defenders and knocking one past the BFC keeper, who beat upon the goal in frustration.

Ryan Mann kept up his pace and shook off the BFC defense to confidently volley his fourth of the day into the BFC net.

After 11 unanswered goals from Jade Tree, BFC made two vital substitutions that resulted in Barclays adding two goals to make it 11-5.

Darren Walters then pounced upon another opportunity when the BFC keeper took a goal kick, only to have none of his teammates receive the ball. Walters teed up the ball and nailed it past the BFC keeper and into the old onion bag.

Alex Milne picked up his hat trick after receiving a free kick from Casey Gallucio and asserting Jade Tree’s desire to continue scoring until the end.

Ryan Mann then ended the match with a goal-his fifth of the match- in the final seconds of the game, helping Jade Tree to win this one a substantial 14-5.

Jade Tree United is poised to be in second or third when the next standings are released. This has been a stellar season for Jade Tree United, whose best placements have been 10th and 9th in previous seasons. The team has Champion’s League aspirations. If they keep up this form, chances are good that JTU will see their way there.

Jade Tree United meet ATM United away at PAL 1 on Sunday, January 21.
