Oldland Abbotonians Blues 2 - 8 Hanham Abbotonians
By Kevin Wichard
Hanham worthy winners
Although having plenty of possession and showing great determination, the Blues were outdone by a strong Hanham team.
Being 4 nil down at halftime, the difference between the teams was Hanhams ability to convert their chances in front of goal.
As soon as the second half started, the blues were rewarded with a fine goal from Jack Moore
. Jack pressurised Hanhams defence, dispossessed Hanhams central defender, then beating the keeper with a well hit shot from the left to lift the Blues sprits.
Hanham then took control and added 4 more goals before Josh Grey
scored with a thunderous shot from the right in the last minute.
Joe Palmer continued his current form with a strong performance down the right, showing great pace and determination. Despite the score, Ben Darke
and Ben Hawkins
linked up well in defense with Oli Box
doing well linking up play from defense to attack.
MOM today was awarded to Matt Sowerby
and Jack Moore
. Matthew never gave up and continued his current form by defending well and having the confidence to get forward more. Jack has played well in his last 3 matches, attacking the wings more and getting back to help defend.
