- Thunder v AFC Salford juniors
Beechy Thunder played top of the league AFC Salford juniors in the last league game before the winter break.
AFC were Lucky to be awarded a penalty after the first five minutes for alleged hand ball. Unfortunate to be a Goal down Beechy had lots of the Ball and were playing well, but a decent strike from outside the box put AFC 2 up.
Beechy put in powerful performance in the second half. Jake osullivan got Beechy off the mark and prince idusuyi got 2 in succession to take the lead. What seemed would be our first victory in months ended on an unfortunate note, instead of closing the game down. Beechy pushed for another and were punished by AFC Salford as an equalise came with 5 to go and then a last minute winner.
Beechy did enough to win the game against the league leaders but were not disciplined enough as a whole to see it out.
Louie Percival and Taonga mututa have impressed in recent weeks playing in the fullback positions and get a joint MOTM.
Result 3-4 defeat
