Match Report

Today we were playing in the 2nd round of the County Cup against Baldock Templars from Division 1.

We knew this would be a tough game but felt confident going into the game after a good win last week.

We started well but against the run of play Baldock broke on the left & crossed to score 1-0.

We then attacked again & Owen put the ball forward with Rhys heading on to Louis who finished well 1-1.

1-1 at half time.

I felt we were the better side and we needed to make our dominance count.

Baldock then went 2-1 up. Finley then hit a good shot that hit the crossbar and over.

Thomas then broke and had a shot that the keeper parried and Alex followed up to score, 2-2.

It finished 2-2 so into 15 mins each way of extra time.

We started well & got a third with a good cross from Finley finished off by Louis, then a 4th when Alex crossed for Louis to finish 4-2.

If you thought that the game was over you were wrong. Baldock broke clear & finished to make it 4-3, then a miss timed tackle gave Baldock a penalty to make it 4-4.

I was thinking the worst but the boys showed great character to come back again, Louis had a great break and shot across the goal & it ended in the net, we will give that one to Louis for his hard work, 5-4.

Not over yet ! A great break from Thomas finished with a strong low cross that Owen met to make it 6-4.

Ollie still had time to pull off a great save to keep the score the same.

It finished 6-4.

I cant remember it all but the crowd cant say they were not entertained today.

The boys showed great strength, ability & character today.

Well done, onto round 3 !
