Return of the Blake
By james stimpson
In the first two minutes Harpenden get a free kick, but Goalie Archie dealt with the danger pulling off a good save. At the other end Dara made a good attack, putting it just wide of the post. 5 Minutes in, Harpenden worked some good passes through the center and score..
The Whites replied with more chances from Dara and Callum. Blake was lively throughout the game and at 8 minutes he made a good drive through their defence, striking a shot to level the score.
Defensively the Whites were solid again today allowing the rest of the team time on the ball. Callum's was persistent and it paid off with a good goal.
The whites piled on the pressure when Dara drove the ball to the line, cut it back in for Callum, his shot was saved but Blake made sure of the rebound.
Just before half time Harpenden replied with a shot which was nicely saved by Archie.
Half time. (Archie comes outfield and Dara goes in goal)
In the second half Callum tested the keeper with a cheeky lob attempt from the halfway line. Roco was lively, putting in some great crosses. Good passing play between Jack and Archie gets the ball to Callum who hit it home.
No. 17 for Harpenden replied with a good strike., they score again following some good passing play.to make it just one behind.
Roco made sure of the Whites win with a run up the centre and great shot, putting it high and out of reach for the keeper
