Chipstead Youth vs Eagles U16
The hard work is starting to pay off.
Eagles U16 vs Chipstead Youth.
Chipstead kicked off the game and with their first attack they scored 1-0. It wasn't long before it was 2-0 to Chipstead and within 10 mins Bedfont were 2-0 down and it could’ve been worse but this time Chipstead hit the post. However, after that Bedfont started to get into the game and we started to play football and it wasn’t long before we created our own chances. Mitchell kicked a long ball up to Sidney, who had started to cause problems to Chipstead defence, he controlled the pass, turned the defender and played the ball out wide to Gideon who took it down the left and crossed it over for Sidney to hit it first time into their goal. 2-1. This lifted Bedfont and we took the game to Chipstead, we created more chances by putting the pressure on them. This paid off as just before halftime Bedfont scored, we were playing some great football which resulted in great team goal. It started down the right with Ryan Fisher playing the ball into the midfield to Jordan who played a one two with Jake, Jordan then crossed the ball to the left to Gideon, who hit the ball straight over into the box which a Chipstead defender headed out straight to Jake who hit it first time which hit the post and rebounded to Sidney, who got it under control and kicked it across their six yard box for Jordan to poke it home. Halftime came too early for Bedfont. 2-2.
Second half started with Bedfont on the front foot and it was like this for most off the second half with Bedfont putting the pressure on and having most of the possession in the second half. Bedfont created chances but we couldn't finish them. Chipstead did create a couple of chances themselves by hitting the post and Mitchell making a great save. The game ended with both teams playing some good football. Bedfont should’ve walked off the winning team, but that's football. What was more satisfying was this team has only been together for a few weeks and after going down 2 goals we showed how much of a team we are becoming. The hard work is starting to pay off, however we still have a long way to go, but we heading the right direction after this performance.
