Pretty in pink
Today was brightened by the boys playing in their new away bright pink kits - even though we were playing on our home ground!
We were playing Brentham Colts and it was always going to be a good match. Play kicked off and both teams were fighting hard, play ran both ends of the pitch with opportunities for both teams. Our defence played well and helped Jamie stop a couple of strong opportunities from Brentham and close to end the of the first half the ball was set up brilliantly for Harry to score the first goal.
Second half and Brentham came back hard and quickly scored to make it 1-1, they were on the attack now and got a penalty shot which they won to make it 2-1. Our boys kept their heads and after Rokas got taken down by the half way line (making Jon run on to check he was ok!) he took the kick and it curled beautifully to hit the back of the net - 2-2. The game was truly on now with both sides wanting the win - unfortunately just before final whistle Brentham held on to score. Final score 3-2 to Brentham, however the ref said the boys played well and if it hadn't been for the wind it could easily have gone the other way.
Well played boys and thank you to the lads who stepped in at the last minute as we had 3 boys call in sick.
