- AFC SALFORD JUNIORS v BEECHY THUNDER U12
Kick Off 10.00am
Beechy kicked off the season against Afc Salford juniors (formally Moorside Blue.) At Eccles college.
In this highly competitive game both teams were disciplined at the back any early chances that were created were cancelled out. Late on in the first half AFC kept the pressure on and eventually scored.
more Chances were created in the second by both teams, although AFC were testing the Beechy keeper more..Jacob Lacey had an optimistic shot from the halfway line which the AFC keeper struggled to hold onto and it eventually trickled into the net to level the scores.
Beechy produced some nice football to create some decent opportunities but lacked the quality in the final third. AFC picked up the tempo and but for the Beechy keeper could of scored a few more. They eventually took the lead when Beechy failed to clear the ball.
Beechy fought hard but could not find the opening to score again.
