TTFC vs Saints
Taunton hosted Saints SW this morning, in what was sure to be an exciting game. The game began with Taunton trying to keep the ball and doing so quite well, but unable to create any chances. 10 minutes in, a Taunton attacked was halted and the ball was sent stright up toward the Saints striker, and a ball over to RW Luke Soanes saw him finish very nicely past the keeper. 1-0 Saints at the end of the 1st quarter.
The second quarter began the same, with both sides battling well in a competitive fixture. 6 minutes in, a penalty was awarded to Saints which was put narrowly wide. Taunton sensing an equaliser, continued to push on but the Saints back four stayed strong. Nearing half time, a well delivered corner from Tom Symons was headed in by Kenzie Norman. 1-1.
The second half began with both teams contesting possession well, more of the play in the Taunton half with TTFC looking to play out from the back, and Saints playing a counter attacking game leading to some good opportunities but no team able to find the lead.
Ther final quarter was an exciting one, with either team in a position to find a winner. Taunton scored first with a brilliantly worked move, finishing with Owen Ford playing a ball across the 6 yard box for Jordan Holley to put TTFC in the lead. Saints didn't lie down though, and pushed on, picking up on a loose ball and some good combination play saw Jack Clark one on one and finished well into the roof of the net.
2-2 at full time in a very competitive game. Both teams will be looking forward to the reverse fixture in a couple weeks.
