- Tornadoes V Thunder
Pre-Season Friendly, Tornadoes V Thunder, Tuesday 30th Aug, Beech Farm, KO 6.15pm.
A good workout for the Tornadoes against a higher division team and Supplementary Cup Winners. A fine overall performance, especially in the first half when we clawed back a two goal deficit to go in to the break at two goals apiece. Tornadoes goals came from Will Whipday and Patrick Walsh. Second half the Tornadoes were unlucky not to be two goals to the good when two gilt edged chances were spurned. In the final ten minutes the Tornadoes lost shape and composure as the Thunder stepped up a gear to score 4 without reply. Final score was Tornadoes 2 - 6 Thunder. However, I think the scoreline is a bit harsh on the Tornadoes who competed well and more than matched Thunder for a good three quarters of the game. If we can compete like this in Division Three, for the coming season, then we'll do ok!
