Today was our first club derby of the season against Bedwell Tigers.
The Tigers started very well & we started very slowly, we missed our tackles and it let the Tigers in for 2 chances in the first 10 minutes which were saved by Ollie. We then started to play a bit better but still not playing at our best, we had a few chances but did not take the lead until just before halftime. Jimmy took a corner and it was met with a strong header by Louis, 1-0.
It was 1-0 at halftime.
At the start of the 2nd half we got caught too far forward on the right and the Tigers had a player free who scored to make it 1-1.
This seemed to trigger us to start playing and a great move by the team involving Louis and Thomas and finished off by Alex, 2-1.
Then a great pass by Daly over the defence was met by Alex with a great, brave header beating the goalkeeper to make it 3-1.
Then a poor goalkeeper clearance fell to Finlay who kept his cool and made it 4-1. We then missed quite a few chances, less power more accuracy ! Tigers had a few chances with Daly making a good clearance & Ollie coming out of his area to clear.
Another goal keeper clearance fell to Nathan who calmly slotted home 5-1.
Then Alex passed to Rhys on the edge of the box who curled a great effort into the top corner, 6-1.
After a slow start we played some good football in the game, but we must concentrate from the start and still not hold onto the ball too long.
