The final quarter again.......
Same old story
The boys played really well today and from the touchline I could sense we may be in for our second win of the season but alas that was not the case and the final quarter let us down again....The boys started really well and for the first quarter both teams cancelled each other out with much of the play in the middle of the pitch and no real attempts on goal at either end. The second quarter started where it ended in the first with both teams playing the same, however it was the visitors who found the back of the net through a well worked ball down the middle. We too had an attempt with Archie Noble
picking up the ball in midfield and running down the channel to cross the ball to Urrav Macwan
, unfortunately it wasn't his day and mistimed his shot. The score remained the same going into the third quarter, but the visitors raised their game and pressed towards our goal. They were kept at bay by some excellent work at the back by Sammy Ellis
Grafton who was exceptional once more and made a fantastic save off the line. We went into the final quarter thinking we can pull this back, but like we have seen so many times this season the boys tired and gaps were created which the visitors exploited and scored five goals in quick succession.
This was a defeat hard to swallow as the boys worked so hard for 30 minutes and the final score really doesn't accurately reflect what happened on the pitch and on another day maybe the result would have been different....
