First Team vs Banstead Athletic

Match Date: 17 August 2021
Score: 2-1


The Bears' secured their first win of the season with this convincing win over Banstead .
The hosts totally dominated play during the first half, but wayward finishing stopped them
taking the lead. However this was to change when on 35 mins Stephen Hafner fired in a
great left wing cross onto the head of Lekan Majoyegbe who rose to send his header home
to give the Bears' a 1-0 lead, the only question was why it had taken so long. Half time 1-0.

The second half started and within 2 mins Sam Stace went on a great run into the Banstead penalty area and was duly fouled, Stace himself stepped up to fire home the penalty.
2-0, 47 mins. The Bears' were now in cruise control with Banstead looking dead and buried.
Although erratic finishing kept the score down. As the game drifted into the final 15 mins, the Bears' for the first time in the match took their foot off the pedal and the visitors decided to
make a go of it and were rewarded on 81 mins when Don de Dieu Tamtale fired home a great shot to give Banstead some hope, 2-1. The home side managed to hold their nerve and see out the remainder of the game, full time 2-1.

Good performance, great result COYB.
