He only Writes when their winning…..!
After many weeks of playing some excellent football and failing to record a win T finally recorded their second win of the season. A good start saw good efforts by Alex, Alfie, Bethany and Joe all saved well by the DH keeper. As usually happens in football, DH broke away and, with Nathan for once failing to gather, DH scored the 1st goal, completely against the run of play. DH gained confidence from this and came much more into the game with the T defense of Harry, Tommy and Nathan having to be very alert with some excellent tackles and good keeping. T began to find the sloping pitch hard going towards the end of the half put continued to press forward, With Alex in particular, making runs from deep in our half and into the DH box. Eventually the DH keeper was finally beaten, with Alex on one of his runs finding the net and giving T a well deserved equaliser just before half time.
Second half saw T continue to dominate possession but unable to create too many clear cut chances. It was the defense, at this point it was Wil and Kieran, who ensured DH did not add to their score. After 10 mins of 2nd half Nathan came on for a rare appearance outfield. With Nathan’s physique and touch keeping the DH defense busy Bethany, Bamiyo and Alex began to enjoy more freedom and chances came T’s way. With a good through ball from Nathan, Bamiyo was clean through to make it 2-1. Another chance saw Bamiyo slide just wide of the goal. The DH keeper was now very busy and was clearly keeping DH in the game with saves from Bethany, Alex, Bamiyo and Nathan. T finally added to their tally with a well struck shot from Kieran hitting the roof of the net making it 3-1 to T. DH tried to bravely to add to their tally but some excellent defending by Wil and Harry, and not to mention 2 good saves by Tommy kept the score at 3-1.
T have now only lost 1 of their last 4 games, hopefully they continue the good run in the comming weeks?
