MATCH REPORT: FC Lakeside 1-5 Churchdown Panthers Whites
Sunday 8th January 2017
Despite having a heavy uneven pitch, some of the passing and transition from the back on show today was fantastic to watch.
Panthers won the game with an electric start and 4 goals in the first 15 minutes. Just 5 minutes in, Ethan Dunbar pounced on a poor goal kick and was able to finish with ease. Three minutes later, Ethan was on the scoresheets again, this time Tyler Jones using the outside of the boot to play Ethan in behind the defence to round the keeper and finish. On 13 minutes a strong header from Cameron Thornton, set Tyler Jones on his way. Tyler beat 3 or 4 players before squeezing a shot underneath the keeper. Then a minute later, some great work by Ethan Dunbar on the right and a cross to match, which was smashed in at the far post by Jakub Kroliczak.
Lakeside managed to get themselevs on the scoresheet with the last kick of the half. This came from a penalty, when a sliding challenge from Alex Fulford was judged to have been a fowl.
The second half was largely comfortable and we played within ourselves. The only goal came on 51 minutes, when Alex Fulford rose at the near post to nod home a Jon Whiting corner.
Could not have been prouder today. Great team work and movement of the ball. For a real presence in defence, unrivalled communication and organisation, and for a bonus goal, our player of the match was Alex Fulford.
