This was our 2nd and last friendly before the start of the season against a strong Walkern side.
It was an even start to the game and Walkern had started well. Oliver took a quick kick & sent it long to Louis who out paced the defence and put us 1-0 up. One memorable moment was Zack running through the team and the keeper just keeping his effort out.
An even first half ended with us 1-0 ahead.
2nd half started with Walkern on top and putting pressure on our defence, Oliver made a good save but Walkern followed up to score 1-1.
Then we seemed to lose our shape and forgot our positions for a mad 5 minutes that then let in Walkern to lead 2-1.
We then started playing well again and putting pressure on the Walkern team, Rhys had a good break but the goalkeeper stopped him in his tracks and the ball fell to Alex who placed it well to score 2-2.
Another good attack by the team with a good pass to Jimmy who then passed to Finley to finish off to make it 3-2.
We were now putting on a lot of pressure on Walkern and we had a quite a few corners with 1 getting the result we were after, Jimmy took the corner for the ball to fall at Zack's feet for him to make it 4-2.
There was still time for Walkern to have a good attack and a great save by Oliver pushing the shot onto the post to keep it at 4-2.
A good result against a strong team today with a lot of good things but also a few things to work on
