Eagles U16 lose at home in a local derby to Bedfont & Feltham U16
The boys were looking forward to this game on our new 3G pitch and were up for it. But we started the game the slowest of the two teams and went a goal down after about 5 mins., from a corner. 1-0 to Bedfont & Feltham.
However, after that we started to get to grips with the game and created a couple of chances, but didn't convert them. Both teams were playing some good football in the first half. The next chance came to us, we played from the midfield and Mason was there to pass a through ball for Jason Boyle to run onto and slot it home to make it 1-1. Both teams were creating chances and we looked like scoring again, but we never took our chances. Then just before half time Bedfont and Feltham, against the run of play, scored from the edge of the box, 2-1.
Second half was a stalemate no one scored in the second half but both teams played their part in this game with some good football. We did create chances but just couldn't get the ball in the net. Bedfont and Feltham also created a couple of chances. There was drama at the end when we put the pressure on in the last 10 mins and should’ve got a draw in the end. We deserved so much more from the game.
I know we lost, but this team has only been together for a few weeks and every time we play we're getting better and this was the best performance of the lot.
