Bedfont Sports U15 vs Spelthorne Sports
End to end football and so close to a win
Bedfont were playing against Spelthorne and wanted a different result from their last game.
The players who were ill last game were back but Jacob had fallen ill and was unable to play.
Bedfont started pushing forward from the start but it was obvious this was going to be an easy game as Spelthorne were very dangerous on the break. Spelthorne had the first chance but a great save from Nathan denied them the lead. Both teams were pushing and trying to find the first goal, the game was end to end football. Bedfont came close with 2 shots from Jack C and 3 shots from Josh but these were wide or saved. Bedfont kept pushing and it felt like the tide had turned, more shots followed from Jack C, Jimmy and Tommy but were unsuccessful.
Spelthorne made the break a couple of times and it was only some great saves from Nathan that stopped them scoring.
Despite both teams pushing the half time score remained 0-0
Bedfont came out second have and seemed to have problems in linking passes to each other and Spelthorne took advantage and once again the game was end to end. Jack E came close for Bedfont but his shot was saved followed a shot by Sam which went wide.
It looked like it was going to be a goalless game but that changed in the last 5 minutes when a terrific through ball from Jack E to Jack C who turned and sent the ball into the Spelthorne net to make it 1-0.
With minutes left all Bedfont needed to do was keep control of the ball but when Spelthorne once again made the break and sent the ball into the Bedfont box a lack of communication between defence and keeper allowed them a empty goal which they took advantage off and got the equaliser to make it 1-1 which it remained for the last 2 minutes of the game
Final score 1-1
Not the best game from Bedfont as some of the passing was well off but a good game with both teams pushing forward.
Man of the match: Nathan G who made some great saves
Scorer: Jack C
