|Time played||Extra time|
Today we had our league cup game v Stev Boro Corinthians who are doing well in Division 1.
Sorry if I have forgotten a lot of the game as it was a frantic game with a lot of action. I will try to remember the crucial parts !
We had a good start with Alex getting past the defence on the left a few times but unfortunately we could not keep up with him when he crossed the ball. Then we had a corner and Stev broke with pace who managed to outpace our defence and scored 0-1.
Then Finley had a good shot that the keeper couldn't grasp 1-1. Then Louis had a shot that rebounded off the post that fell to Thomas who this time kept his head over the ball and scored a good goal 2-1. Stev also had some threatening attacks with Ollie making a great save that rebounded off the post and in the same move Stev hit the post again.
2nd half the game was again quite even with Harry & Daly both throwing themselves in front of the goal to stop Stev Boro scoring, then with just a few minutes to go Stev Boro equalised. 2-2. Extra time.
In the 1st peroid of extra time Louis hit a great shot from the left into the top corner 3-2.
Then just before the break Stev Boro had a corner that fell to a Stev Boro player to score 3-3.
We now just had 10 minutes to stop the game going to penalties and boy did we do that !
First great work by Josh at right back with a superb through ball to Louis who finished with a great shot into the corner of the net, 4-3.
Then we broke again & Finley had another shot the keeper couldn't grasp, 5-3.
Then to finsh a great ball that Rhys flicked on to Louis who again finished brilliantly in the corner of the net 6-3.
It finished 6-3.
What a great team performance and result today.
Very proud of all the boys todays.
Onto the next round !
