Away to Shephall today which may well be our toughest challenge yet. The boys warm up well and look ready to continue where they left off from the previous week. The kick-off is taken and we take control of the game early with some good possession and control the pace of the game which sees us carving open some good chances but we just don’t seem to be able to capitalise. Then with five minutes to go before half time Shephall show what a good team they are and counter attack quickly scoring two goals in as many minutes and knocks the stuffing out of Eagles and all the hard work they have done.
Half time 2-nil Shephall
During the half time talk we iron out the unrest that has crept into the boys since conceding and prepare ourselves for a good second half.
The second half starts and the boys show true spirit and continue to work hard to get back into the game which Shephall are not making easy and are showing a new found purpose since taking the lead. There is great passing, movement and tough tackling going on all over the pitch but Shephall’s finishing proves to be king on the day as they score another two, the boys rally themselves and show a never say die attitude which sees them get a well earned goal.
Final Score 4-1 to Shephall
A very enjoyable game and the score did not reflect how close a game it was, what made it even better was some great refereeing and two good sets of supporters, well done everyone.
