DIVISION 1: Churchdown Panthers Whites 0-2 Bishops Cleeve Colts
Sunday 10th March 2019
The gameplan was to play into the wind in the first half, frustrate the opposition and then hit them with the wind in our favour in the second half. We got that 50% right. Despite conceeding the only 2 goals of the match, in the first period, we played our best football into the wind. We were the better side and created panic in the opposition with the chances we created. Panthers should have grabbed a couple of first half goals themselves. However, we allowed a Cleeve player a free header from close range at a corner on 11 mins, and then just before the half time whistle, got caught out with a free kick assisted by the wind.
We were still very confident at half time about getting back into the game, but did not make the most of the wind advantage. The play wasn't at the level of the first half, and we didnt really carve out any clear cut chances. In fact, the highlight of the second half, was a penalty save by Alex Fulford to prevent us falling further behind.
It was a good effort in some challenging conditions today, just need to be a bit more clinical.
