ASTRO TROPHY: Churchdown Panthers Whites 3-1 Gala Wilton
Sunday 14th January 2018
What a terrific first half performance, to set us up for a great win. Great energy, high effort and lots of passion on show.
We took the lead on 20 minutes. Ehren Wintle fed the ball forward for Ethan Dunbar, who turned and fired a left foot shot across the keeper. Then 7 minutes later we doubled the lead. Jon Whiting found Ethan Dunbar in the area, whose quick feet bamboozled the defenders. Ethan's shot was deflected off the head of a defender, only for Jaydon Dix to head home.
Gala got back in it early in the second half, a through ball putting the defender in 1 on 1 to score. But Panthers were too strong throughout, and wrapped the game up with 10 minutes left. Cam Thornton put Tom Whiteside away, who after checking back onto his right fott, beat the keeper from the edge of the area.
A spiritied performance, and some quality football. Our player of the match went to Ethan Dunbar, who was just everywhere today.
