Match Report

Diamonds v Holwell

1st quarter 

After playing Holwell recently and snatching a winner in the last minute, Holwell didn’t have time to react so we knew today they would start quickly and so they did with around 5 corners in succession which Diamonds did well to defend. After that spell Diamonds with some good work in midfield switched the play to the right where Tom Nixon beat 2 players to deliver a perfect cross for Tyler Matthews to head home 1-0 Diamonds after 8 minutes. Again good work in midfield where Diamonds has worked in training in certain areas was paying dividends as the energetic Tyler Matthews rifled home a right foot shot into the top corner on 12 minutes to make it 2-0. Diamonds were really playing some good football by this point and with the quarter drawing to a close Carter Oakes stepped up for a free kick that bounced in front of the keeper to make it 3-0 Diamonds

2nd quarter

Again Diamonds were bright and they looked assured at the back with Cian Shea and Amari Hines marshalling their impressive and competitive number 9. With a piece of skill by Charlie Batty to bring the ball under control with his thigh and to hit the volley over the keeper to make it 4-0 at the end of the 2nd quarter 

3rd quarter

Diamonds started the quarter well and some neat interchange lead to another finish from Tyler Matthews this time on his left foot to make it a perfect hat trick and Diamonds now 5-0 up at the break

4th quarter 

A bit of a lull for Diamonds in this quarter, perhaps a little tired from lots of effort early on but Holwell started coming on to Diamonds and were looking threatening and after penalty to Holwell which hit the crossbar and Holwell reacted quickest to make the score 5-1. This lifted Holwell and they were now coming in stronger and after intercepting a pass Holwell scored to make it 5-2. 

That was the end of the scoring and the game finishing 5-2 Diamonds
