DIVISION 1: Churchdown Panthers Whites 7-0 Wotton Rovers Tigers
Sunday 25th March 2018
We weren't at our best today, which was not suprising having had a few weeks of cancelled games, but were still in full control of this game.
It took 25 mins to register the first goal. Charlie Holliday dribble down the left flank, beat 2 and crossed for an Ed Leech tap in. 10 mins later and another Charlie Holliday cross led to a goal, the clearing header falling to Kye Brice on the edge of the area, who found the top corner. Kye then turned provider on 40 mins with a wonderful back heel that put Charlie Holliday through in the box and he finished superbly past the keeper.
On 67 mins, Cameron Thornton floated a free kick in behind the defence, which found Ethan Dunbar who headed past the keeper. 2 mins later and a shot by Kian Gardiner, was then volleyed by Ed Leech, to cannon off a defender and into the back of the net. Dubious goal decision panel awarded the goal to Ed Leech :). 2 more mins later and a ball kicked from the Wotton keepers hands, was expertly controlled by Jaydon Lehal, who then dinked the ball over the top for Ed Leech to run on to and chip the keeper. Then 3 mins later we may it 7. Cameron Thornton hit a shot across the keeper, which was turned in by Kye Brice.
The players dropped the tempo to that of the opposition. Had we played at the standard and pace we are capable of, this would have been a far bigger margin. The player who was superb today, adapting what he has been shown in training in regard movement off the ball, and for his hat-trick, the player of the match is Ed Leech.
