Bedfont Eagles Sports vs Enfield Youth
First game of the season and good result
After what seems an eternity the season is finally about to start.
Bedfont’s first game of the season is a Middlesex cup game against Enfield Youth with kick off at 10.30.
Enfield won the toss and kicked off but straight away Bedfont pushed forward and started putting pressure on the Enfield defence. First shot of the game came from Tommy, which was saved but minutes later a break down the wing from Sam who sent the ball into Jack E in the middle who turned and sent a cracking shot into the top of the net to make it 1-0.
Bedfont kept pushing and Jack E came close to his second when he took a free kick and the ball was stopped by the keeper who dropped it and just as it was about to run over the line he collected it. The ball stayed in the Enfield half and Bedfont were awarded a free kick when Josh was held back. Sam took the free kick and Josh made a great header past the keeper to make 2-0.
More shots followed from Tommy, George, Jimmy and Kieron but they were saved or wide. Enfield came close to getting a goal when they made the break but the shot went over the bar. This was followed by a free kick given to Enfield but the shot was safely collected by Luke who threw the ball out to Connor who made a great run but his shot went over the bar.
Bedfont were playing some good football and were rewarded with another goal when Josh took a shot from outside the box. It bounced right in front of the Enfield keeper and went through his hands into the top of the net to make it 3-0.
With 10 minutes left in the first half Enfield pushed forward and when one of their players was pushed over the referee awarded them a penalty. Luke dived the right way but the ball went straight into corner just out of his reach. The score now was 3-1 and despite further shots from Tommy, Connor, Jack E and Darren that is how the score remained at the half time whistle.
The second half started and Bedfont went straight on the attack with 2 shots from Sam, Keiron and Jack E but were unlucky, Enfield made the break and came close but Luke saved the shot to deny them the goal.
