- Winton blues away.. cup
WOW..... What a game and what a performance.
First up it's great to see everyone turn up again after a 2 week break, and great to finally get in our new amazing kit
As for the game there is no doubt we were the better team for the whole match, but as with previous matches we're not turning our possession and dominance in to goals..Winton had pretty much one chance in the first half and scored going in at the break 1-0 up..
We knew we were well in the game and we were the better team, and at half time we made our point and the tesm went out for the second half full of confidence.. The back 3 of Leo.Liam and Mikey looked strong, Josh was looking solid and breaking up play with Zane and Matthew getting forward to support David and Joel up front..
Leo got an injury and was replaced by Robert, while a frustrated David was given a rest and replaced by Will..
Beechfield were still in control but a lapse in concentration from Robert saw him put the ball in his own net.. 2-0 down and it looked like we were in trouble.
Not today tho, the lads kept at it working really hard.. Mikey really impressing on the left, Robert making up for his mistake played great. In fact the whole team were superb.
Finally our time came and matthew put the ball in the bottom corner to make it 2-1.. Game on, we thought this was it but an absolutely shocking decision from the ref let Winton clean through to chip Woody when he was clearly 5 yards off side.. Sickener, surely that was us done.. Nope, back we came again, this time David who had come back on to replace Joel pulled one back to leave a tense finish.. We continued to press and look for the equaliser, and when Zane got put through he calmly finished to give us the goal we deserved. Cue wild scenes on the field and pitch side, great feeling. Still a couple of minutes left and both teams went for the win, Winton hitting the bar with a well struck free kick but the game finished and time for the lottery of penalties..3-3
First up Winton put their kick wide
Mikey- great pen 0-1
Winton goal 1-1
Zane- great save 1-1
Winton- missed 1-1
Robert- great pen 1-2
Winton- great save Woody
Demi- smashed it bottom corner 1-3
Absolute scenes on the pitch, everyone rushing to celebrate with match winner Demi.. Just brilliant
A superb performance from every single member of our team, this one will stick in the memory for a long time.. Very well deserved victory but please make it easier next time hahaha.. WELL DONE EVERYONE
to be fair I could of given it to a lot of players, Zane,Josh,Liam and Robert all impressing again but Mikey was everywhere..
Another cup game next week and another win is what we want.. Same again guys
