ASTRO TROPHY: Churchdown Panthers Whites 3-1 Leckhampton Rovers Lions
Sunday 28th January 2018
Another great team performance and a solid win.
The first half effort was excellent. The only suprise at half time was that we were only one goal up. That goal came just before the half hour, with excellent play out from the back, before Kian Gardiner played the killer ball for Ethan Dunabr, who turned 2 defenders and then beat the keeper.
The lead was doubled 15 minutes into the second period. A corner fell to Ethan Dunbar on the edge of the area, whose shot was blocked, only for Ed Leech to be on hand, to smash the ball home.
That triggered a period where we dropped the effort levels and stood off a bit, allowing Leckhampton to get a foothold in the game. And half way through the second half they got back in it. A mistimed effort to clear a corner, span the ball across the area for a tap in. But Panthers had the last say. With 3 minutes left, Jon Whiting floated a free kick to the back post, where Ethan Dunbar hit a sweat volley into the roof of the net.
Really good spells of football, and worked together nicely. For bossing the midfield, our player of the match is Ehren Wintle.
