Following our new strategy , deployed successfully in the last 2 games we conceded a quick goal – this time in less than 30 seconds. An improvement on last week !
Then with the score at 0-1 we quickly started to play football . There were a few scares where we could have gone 2 or 3 goals behind but in the main it was a first half of good football but with Jordan in the Culdrose goal doing everything to keep the ball out.
At half time still behind by 1 goal there was no panic. We just had to tell the team to keep playing the way they were playing – good 2 – 3 touch passing . After a few minutes from the restart great swivelling half volley from Andreas equalized the score. Then a header from Cam at a corner. We now started to play football at will and soon created an OG after pressure from Scott. The match was now drawing to a close but we relaxed for a few seconds and conceeded a 2nd goal. With a now re-enlivened Culdrose , the 3 points were at risk but a the concentration was restored and the match played out.
Well played all. At 3-1 up we were playing some of our best football ever, but when the team is running so smoothly, it means all have to concentrate to keep it going smoothly. I think now at u16 , the speed of the game does not allow for any lapses.
Goats 3- Culdrose 2
