Under 16's vs Kings Hill Colts FC

Match Date: 07 October 2018
Score: 2-2

Result: 2-2   (4-3 pens)

Challenge Cup 1st Round match today against top of the league Kings Hill Colts FC.

The result did NOT reflect the game whatsoever!
Two other managers, of teams in our league, were in attendance and spoke to me afterwards to agree with this....

We dominated from the first minute to the 87th minute.
Our keeper, Toby Howells, was sublime as were our strong defenders.
Our midfield broke up the opposition's attacks every single time and created marvellous counter-attacks for our front 3.
Our strikers (Presley, Daz and Jolyon) didn't take their chances as they usually would but ran their socks off and gave the Kings Hill defenders a torrid time.

It SHOULD have been 5-0 to us AT LEAST (that's just counting the one-on-ones with their keeper, who was excellent).
Then, in the last 3 minutes, we conceded twice.

Firstly, a debatable penalty for supposed handball.
Then an unlucky mistake where a huge clearance upfield bounced over our goalie under no pressure.

So it went to penalties.
Redeeming himself miraculously, Toby Howells saved 5 penalties out of 8 and won us the game.

Phew! Please get the job done in normal time next time, lads!
