We have beaten London Eagles White twice 4-3, 2-0 and drawn 2-2 previously.
Goals - 2 Riley
We started on the back foot, with Eagles going close before pouncing on a loose ball when we failed to clear from a corner, 0-1. Chris then lost the ball at the back and although Filip saved the initial shot, the rebound was tucked away clinically, 0-2. Second quarter Thomas was trying to make a tackle on the right, but when the ball was crossed no one was covering the two players at the back post, 0-3. Then we were undone by a ball over the top, Half time 0-4.
We started the second half with an extra player, but when Chris pushed up for a corner, we were exposed at the back, 0-5. Riley then went on a solo run scoring with a low shot, 1-5. Shortly after he scored his second to make the score 2-5 and we removed our extra player. Hopes of a comeback were short lived when Eagles scored again, 2-6. Eagles passed the ball much better and were clinical with their chances throughout, so were good value for their first win over us in four attempts.
MOTM was Filip for keeping the goals conceded down with some good saves.
