Hillingdon Borough FC hosted Brent FC in the league looking to remain unbeaten. The squad of 12 players from all around the borough have been fantastic to work with at training and on match days.
The game started with Hillingdon on top and defending form the front with Alfie and Reece as always winning tackles giving absolutely everything from the start. The boys at the back had the game ahead of them and played some good football with Lewis, Josh and Luke and Jake in goal behind calm under pressure and not really under any threat.
The boys in midfield battled and With Jack, Mathew and Ryan creating some good chances for the strikers.
The first goal of the game came from some great work by Reece on the right his cross found Ryan cutting in from the left his effort was heading into the far corner when Alfie came sliding in to smash it into the empty net and make it 1-0 to Hillingdon. Ryan on set pieces put in some great corners 3 were well met by Reece who unfortunately headed each one just wide of the post. Hillingdon could and should have doubled there lead just before half time, Alfie played through Reece and he forced the opposition keeper into a very good save.
The half time whistle blew with Hillingdon 1-0 up.
The message at half time was keep paying football and the next goal is massive.
We did make one change Harry came on for Jack who had a great first half.
The second half was very much like the first Hillingdon onto and creating some good chances. Ryan swung in a great free kick which Lewis headed over and again Reece getting in the right positions from corners very unlucky not to score.
Hillingdon then deservedly doubled there lead half way through the second half Reece finding his strike partner Alfie who scored from a very tight angle into the corner of the net a very good finish.
The game was a hard though battle with a few scraps and some quality tackles specially Alfie, Lewis and Luke making last ditch tackles a joy to watch.
Then a brief lapse of concentration from our no.1, normally safe hands in wet and windy conditions Jake lost concentration and a normal routine catch slipped through his hands from a long free kick and into the net.
The game then became open with 7 minutes to play Brent put some pressure on us but some great headers from Josh and super defending from the whole team we managed to see out the final minutes and grab all 3 points, deservedly so in my opinion.
Man of the match was difficult Lewis was superb at the back, Alfie scored 2 and never stopped working but today we have gone with Josh. Well done boys great team keep up the hard work.
