Theo the rock, solid at the back!
By james stimpson
The whites started with a good move from the defence, passing from deep through the field to Dara upfront who put it past the keeper but just wide of the post. Bovingdon replied putting our defence under pressure and fired a shot which was saved by Archie. Blake and Theo applied good pressure to win defensive battles. A great clearance by Jack from a Bovingdon corner nicely knocked up field to Callum with a great pass to Dara, his shot was denied by some good keeping. Theo was great in tracking back and little got past him the whole match. Jack, Roco, Hayden, Callum and Blake made some great passing plays. Dara hits the post but minutes later Hayden made a great pass to Dara on the right, a shot past keeper to score. Theo was solid in defence, pumping balls down the lines. Blake worked the ball through their defence and made a good acute low shot across goal. A few minutes later his constant pressure up field wins a corner.
Half time ( Archie goes outfield and Dara goes in goal)
Bovingdon apply good pressure from the off, they get through and shoot, Dara saves, but the rebound is hit home and they score.
Bovingdon heap on more pressure and Theo makes a solid defensive stop that would rattle most peoples teeth!
Hemel wins a corner, played short by Blake to Callum, whose shot is just wide of the post. Great move out of defence through the midfield by Jack, he passes to Blake who crosses it into Callum and he fires of a shot which is saved by the keeper.
More pressure from Hemel, Roco in a tenacious move, battled through their defence and scores.
Hemel win a corner, the quality cross from Callum picks out Jack who scores with a sublime bullet of a header. He got his head to more balls than any other player the whole match, must be the new haircut!.
Hemel win another corner, Hayden receives it and bangs it back across keeper into the back of the net to score. Moments later at other end Hayden puts in great defensive tackle after tracking back. Hemel now making good chances on the run, one cross to Archie in centre just goes wide of the goal. Good attacking play with great passing by Theo, Roco Callum, his last shot just goes over. In an end to end move, Dara passes the ball out to Theo, onto Blake, great pass to Archie, his shot goes just wide. More balls into Archie, he tries a cheeky back heel but the goalie saves and the last attempt in the game by Archie just goes over the bar. Could have had a hatful of goals in the second half.
