Bedfont Sports U15 vs Chertsey Town
Good solid performance
Bedfont were playing Chertsey at home and before the game started they were already 2 players down, both Tommy and Liam were sick.
Despite the missing players Bedfont went straight on the attack at kick off with 2 shots from Nathan just over the top but the first goal came minutes later when Josh laid the ball into the area and Jack C took the shot. The ball hit the Chertsey keeper but he was unable to keep hold and it rolled in to make it 1-0. Chertsey attacked straight back and came close to getting an equaliser but the shot hit the crossbar. Chertsey took control of the game and kept pushing forward with shots just going wide or Bedfont clearing.
Once Bedfont rode out the attack they took the game back to Chertsey with Shahans shot saved but minutes later Josh made sure when he slammed the ball into the back of the net to make 2-0. Bedfont did not let up the pressure and when Jack C took his shot it came close to going into the top of the net but hit the crossbar and dropped down for Sam to run in and place it into the net to make 3-0. The scored remained 3-0 at half time despite a close shot from Nathan which went just over the bar.
At half time Jack B had to leave as he was feeling ill.
Second half started and the Chertsey players were going to let Bedfont walk all over them, they attacked and their shot went just wide followed by them being awarded a free kick just outside the box but a great save by Nathan denied them. Bedfont regained control and went forward and a great save from the Chertsey keeper denied Nathan. The ball stayed in the Chertsey half and a great header from Kaine came close but was saved and a shot from josh just wide.
There was going to be no denying more goals from Bedfont and when Jimmy laid a great ball through to Jack C he placed the ball into the back of the net 4-0. Chertsey heads were dropping and a mistake by one of their defenders when he headed the ball back to the keeper allowed Josh to run in and knock it into the net 5-0. Bedfont came close again when a corner sent the ball into George who made a great leap and headed the ball but it was stopped by the keeper.
There was 10 minutes left in the game and Bedfont were throwing everything at Chertsey but when their defence took down Jack C the referee had no choice but to award a penalty. Jack C calmly stepped and sent into the corner of the net to get his hat trick and make the score 6-0.
With minutes left it looked like it was all over but a great run from Jimmy through the defence followed by a great shot, he was unlucky as the keeper got a hand to it but he could not hold onto it and as it dropped to the right wing Sam ran in and slammed into the net just before the referee blew final whistle
Final score 7-0 and a good solid game from Bedfont with a hat trick from Jack C
Man of the match was Darren who solid in defence while also pushing forward.
