Match Report - Green Eagles vrs Wetherby (21/10/2012)

The first game was against a well organised Wetherby side who moved the ball well and made it difficult for our defence. As a result, we defended well in numbers, with Theo, Sol and Oliver having to battle hard. For the first half of the game we managed to clear our lines and avoid conceding. In the second half the pressure told and we concede two goals in quick succession. Lucca put in another great goalkeeping performance and saved a number of shots on target.

The team spirit was excellent and despite these goals the team dug deep and worked hard to create a couple of chances that could have reduced the deficit. Harry B, Harry P and William tackled hard in midfield and strived to work the ball through to Luke up front, but the chances were limited and the game finished 0-2.

Game 2 started much the same as game 1, with Wetherby applying early pressure and dominating possession. They scored two goals early in the first half but the team spirit of Pannal Ash was incredible and heads did not drop. Before half time, some excellent play, particularly from midfield, produced breaks for Luke who kept his composure to score two beautifully taken goals to  finish the first half all square.

In the second half, the players were boosted by the exciting end to the first half and matched Wetherby in terms of possession and movement of the ball. Lucca rolled the ball to Oliver who played the long ball through to Luke who didn't waste the opportunity to claim his hattrick  with a terrific finish into the bottom right corner. To turn a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead was rewarding for the players and the coach and spirits were high. Wetherby also kept their composure and worked hard to recover and, with just 2 minutes to spare, managed to sneak an equaliser. 

Perhaps the most exciting game this year for the Eagle's Greens finished 3-3 with lots of positives to take into the next match.
