Meeting early definitely paid off this week as an unexpected pit stop in Osterley was carried out(Conrad). So to the game, we knew that the pitch was going to be difficult as we had seen it the week before. We also knew that Acton had a team that liked to play football, even on the mud bath, they have to play on.
The game started very evenly and Acton were asking the early questions, but as the half went on Eagles were creating chances. Kyle & Ryan having good openings but either hitting the woodwork on shooting wide. The opening goal came via a corner, Kyle rising to header in unchallenged after a well timed run. Acton still continued to pressurise Bedfont, but the defence stood firm. Eagles got the all important second goal just before half-time when a scramble in the box fell to Kiaro, who smashed the ball high into the net.
The 2nd half continued in the same vein as the 1st, but it was more Eagles pressure with the occasional Acton attack. Daniel was called upon to make a one on one save, but Eagles squandered various opportunities to add to the scoreline. Jack & Kyle had to go off with injuries & Conrad & Ryan also made way for the subs.
Well done boys, so very proud off you, 3 finals in 4 years!!!
