Whitefriars vs St Martha's

Our second game of the season, we played two St Martha teams, one in each half.
The first half ended 3-3! We were a real threat on the counter attack. The defence of Ashton and David threw everything at the St Martha attack. We were unlucky as a couple of the shots were rebounds from excellent saves from Codey. Brilliant assists from Iwan and even Codey from goalkeeper! Josh, Iwan and Jacob scored near identical goals, sprinting past the defence and striking the ball past the goalkeeper. We created more chances in the first half, with great passes and runs from George. Finley and Ollie came on in defence and showed excellent determination. Oliver put excellent determination and effort in the middle of midfield.

Second half we conceded 3 goals, losing the match 6-3, the fresh players having the edge. We were very unlucky, creating lots of chances and missed a penalty. A fantastic effort from all the children, with a smaller squad of player, they gave it their all. Brilliant attacking play gives us lots of potential moving forward.

Thank you for all the support from everyone who came!
