DIVISION 1: Ruardeen 4-5 Churchdown Panthers Whites
Sunday 4th November 2018
Our first game in over a month was an exciting one??!! Overall it was a good solid performance today, just up against a physical team and visibility down to 10 yards, we conceeded a couple of silly goals. But we battled and got the right result, even though the result is closer than it should have been!
Panthers fell behind on 22 minutes, from an intercepted goal kick that was lifted back over the keepers head. We levelled on 35 mins from a Tom Whiteside cross that was controlled and volleyed home by Ethan Dunbar.
Then in a dodgy start to the second half, we conceeded 2 in the first 15 minutes, both shots from the edge of the area. We then turned the games on its head. 57 mins a Jon Whiting free kick was met by the head of Daniel Clayton and fell to Jakub Kroliczak to finish well. 72 mins, Ehren Wintle created space on the edge of the area and set up Josh Bird for a great finish. 77 mins and Ryan Murcott went short to pick up a corner from Jakub Kroliczak, turned and floated the ball into the far corner. Then on 80 mins a Kye Dean cross was flicked in by Ethan Dunbar. Ruardeen got one back in stoppage time from a free kick we didn't deal with.
A great effort in tough conditions and a deserved result.
