|Time played||Normal time|
After a dissapointing performance last week at Morden, today was a tough test against an undefeated Walkern side.
We started slowly and Walkern were on top, we then started to come into the game.
Ollie made a good save to keep Walkern out then we had a break and Louis put Finley away who raced clear and put it into the top corner 1-0.
Walkern then put us under pressure and when the ball was cleared it fell to Walkern on the edge of the box who placed a great shot into the top corner 1-1.
We broke down the left and Finley crossed, it missed Louis and fell to Alex, his first shot was well saved but he reacted quickly and put the rebound away 2-1. We then were well on top, a great last ditch challenge stopped Louis who had broken free. We then had a Louis goal dissallowed for off side.
2-1 at Halftime.
We started the 2nd half strongly and kept Walkern in their own half. We had a scramble in the Walkern box from a corner but a break away from Walkern from another corner caught us out and they ran through to score 2-2.
That gave Walkern encouragement and both teams went for the win. We broke on the right and crossed to Owen who layed it off to Nathan who was in space but his shot was saved, Walkern's defence cleared the box, Daly ran onto the clearance and scored a screamer into the top right hand corner, great goal ! 3-2.
It then seemed to be end to end, with the Walkern goalkeeper making 2 great saves, resulting in 1 goalkeeper going off injured.
Ollie then made a good save to keep Walkern at bay.
The game finished 3-2.
This was a good game with the boys showing the right hunger and attitude this week. Lets make sure we keep it going.
