DIVISION 1: Gala Wilton 5-1 Churchdown Panthers Whites
Tuesday 24th April 2018
You know what, we did make some uncharacteristic mistakes, and we didn't do some of the basic stuff right, but the half time score was harsh. We also didn't have the rub of the green. From the mid point of the first half to the end of the match, we were the better footballing side.
5 minutes - too much time in midfield and a ball punted over the top, was finished well.
12 minutes - a long punt forward, flick on and we conceeded a foul on the edge of the box. The free kick was well executed off the inside of the upright.
32 mintues - a long punt forward from a free kick near the half way line, which caught in the wind and floated into the roof of the net.
34 minutes - a good through ball that was finished well.
39 minutes - a long punt forward, a flick on and a goalkeeping error by Alex Fulford, splilling the ball and leaving a tap in.
We switched formation for the second half and caused them problems. Many more chances created. A number of shots that were too hot to handle for the Gala keeper, but they seemed to bounce of his legs and luckily behind all the time. A deserved colsolation goal eventually arrived with just 4 mins left. Ed Leech drove into the box and was felled. Alex Fulford converted from the spot.
It was no doubt a disappointing result at this stage of the season, but there is plenty to look back on and be proud of. Having come off the bench and instilled a bit of solidity in midfield, our player of the match was Jon Whiting.
