Eagles 2 : 2 Croygas Lions
Bedfont Eagles 2 : 2 Croygas
Bedfont started the brightest and for the first 15mins it looked like Bedfont was going to score first, but didn't put away their chances. Croygas started to put the pressure on Bedfont and they broke on us with a long ball over the top of Bedfont's defence for their striker to run onto and Jake our defender had to catch him and did, but brought their striker down just outside our box, fortunately they didn't convert the free kick. It was a warning to Bedfont and they didn't learn from it because a couple mins later Croygas did it again this time they took their chance. 0-1 Croygas.
It was a tight game in the first half and both teams were cancelling each other out, however towards the end of the first half Bedfont started to put the pressure on and created chances, but just couldn't score. Bedfont nearly scored with their best move of the half, it started with great play from the midfield, Manasseh winning the ball back, which he did all half, and played a one two with Dylan for him to go on a run and play the ball for Reiss to run onto and cross it to edge of the box for Dylan to volley pass their keeper but was unfortunate as it hit the post. That was our best move of the half and deserved a goal. 0-1 Croygas.
The second half started a bit slow with both teams losing the ball, but after 10 mins it started to get better. We started to create chances coming down our left with Gideon causing all sorts of trouble for Croygas. Then all of sudden Liam played a through ball to Reiss who played it to Ryen who passed it through to Gideon down the left, Gideon then took two touches and unleashed a cracking shot into Croygas goal. 1-1.
Bedfont started to push forward and create more chances with Gideon running down the left and hitting a low cross across the six yard box only for Reiss to miss an open goal. On another day Bedfont could’ve scored a couple more of goals before Croygas scored. Croygas did exactly what they did to us in the first half, they won the ball back and knocked it long over Bedfont's defence for their striker to run onto and lob our goalkeeper. 1-2 Croygas.
So, Bedfont had it all to do again and as the second half went on the game started to stretch and it became end to end stuff and both teams could’ve scored, but with 10 mins left it was Bedfont who won the ball back and Dylan hit a long ball down the right for Josh to run onto, he beat the defender he then took it around their keeper but left himself a difficult angle but he had a shot across the goal and their defender knocked it into their own goal. 2-2. Towards the end either team had chances to win it but that's how it stayed, and in fairness I think a draw was a fair result.
Great game to watch,it had everything by both teams.
