This week was a game of two very different halves. The first half showed some good passing from the team; Jack passing down the wing to Charlie and with a strong cross into Adam allowed him to finish with a great goal and took us ahead. Applying increased pressure on the opposition they helped to take us further ahead with an own goal. While the opposition continued to apply the pressure midfield, defence and Lewis was able to make some good clearances. With spirits high and some good ball skills from the team, Theo was able to take us further into the lead with a super goal, going into half time.
The second half started where we left off, however, the opposition were able to take advantage and led to us conceding a goal. With a combination of further goals and a number of unfortunate decisions it started to affect our concentration and at times meant our feet weren’t doing the talking, as much as they could. While there were some great clearances from Raphael, Harley, Jack and Luke in defence, strong passing in midfield by Theo, Adam and Oliver and further changes for the team as well as Charlie and Bradley up front, it wasn’t meant to be this week. Although it was frustrating for everyone, not to see the ball hit the back of the net, we can’t win them all, even though we would like to!
