Boys unlucky in final league game
Quality finishes the difference in close game
Today the boys played a team that arguably gave them their hardest game this season in phase 1.
The game kicked off and the boys looking good in their new kits (thanks Jennor Timber!) played well and matched their opponents for the best part of the opening quarter. Chances came at each end and unfortunately TFA took a couple of theirs where ours were saved or just went wide. George picked up the ball and busrst into the box only to be upended then shoved in the back for good measure and earn a penalty. He got up dusted himself off and stood up to take the penalty himself. A little worried being his Dad I needn't have been as he smashed it top left corner. The boys continued to press and really gave a good show of themselves. A further goal came as we won a corner which Kallum whipped in and Ashton nipped in front of the defender to turn it into the goal 2-2 and game on!
At times we were well on top but just couldn't find another goal. As the game went on it became quite end to end and despite our own chances TFA had theirs which with some quality finishing saw them edge in to the lead and eventually go further in front to finish the game 5-2 winners.
The boys all played really well today but the difference was some quality finishing from a well organised team but no disgrace in the performance
