KERNOW CUP 2010/11

We unfortunately were knocked out in the first match

We lost 4-3 after a very very tight game.  We conceded two easy goals within the first 5 minutes, but then we switched on and got a goal back by half time.  In the second half we came out more determined than ever and scored another two goals to lead 3-2 with only 6-7 minutes of the match left.  However the adrenaline was perhaps pumping too hard in the players as they looked to score more goals against a Devils team that was now rapidly wilting.  However with 2 minutes to go a breakout by the Devils allowed a sweet long range short to just catch the goats goalie a little to far out and although a he jumped high and caught his fingers on the ball he could not quite deflect it over the bar.  At 3-3 all we were confident of winning the match in extra time as we had the fitness and drive and had had the Devils penned in their half for what was now nearly 30 minutes.  However a badly conceeded corner allowed the Devils to use their superior height to bundle in a final goal before the last seconds of play.      We shall have to learn to control the pace of the game more and play to suit the score line but while disappointed to go out in the first round we were pleased with the football we played and way we played it
