DIVISION 1: Churchdown Panthers Whites 5-2 Ruardeen Hill Rangers
Sunday 9th September 2018
Well we ground out a result on a day we were not at our best. The first half performance was not of the standard we are capable of, but the players lifted for the second half and raised the energy levels.
Panthers went 1 down on just 4 minutes, then 2 down from the spot on 26 minutes after Alex Fulford was judged to have taken the player not the ball. But we got back in it just before the half hour mark, when a long ball from Charlie Holliday was latched on to and converted by Ethan Dunbar.
We were level 8 minutes into the 2nd half. Jon Whiting with a superb through ball for Ethan Dunbad to finish again. Then 5 minutes later, Cameron Thornton on the edge of the area, laid the ball off for Jakub Kroliczak to fire home across the keeper. On 60 minutes, a goalmouth scrambe was cleared to Jaydon Dix on the edge, who controlled and then fired home. And with 5 minutes left, Ethan Dunbar crossed for Jon Whiting to smash the ball in off the bar.
Panthers were not at their best today, but still managed to grind out a good resilt.
