|Result||L 1 - 12|
This was the first league game for the 6ths. We started with 10 men for the first 20 minutes in which we gave away 4 goal. The midfield played well passing the ball around and getting into their D and winning a short corner, twice we put the ball onto a foot and won corners, and then they broke with speed to get a 5th. Glyn stopped another 2 -3 chances for them until the end of the half 7-0 down. Team talk at half time and we chanced the formation so Ben stayed on their main forward. With great defending (shoulders and knees in the way) and the midfield coming back, Ben stopping every ball getting to him, we stopped them from scoring for 15 minutes. They broke through in the end but we then got the ball to Nick to score 8-1.
With only 8 minutes to go they again started to overrun us to get the last 4 goals. All in all the game was played in a good manner, and good umpiring. Man of the match was Ben for all the running and interceptions in the second half
