AFC R&D v B’ham St. George - 03/11/18
The game started off with Diamonds flying out of the blocks forcing two strong early saves from the St. George’s Gk.
However Tyler Allan was able to get in behind the high defensive line and score two early goals, plus and great run and finish from Tom Stanbridge.
The 2nd quarter began in similar fashion with Diamonds playing quickly in wide areas to then finish, two more from Tyler Allan and another from Tom Stanbridge. Then just before half time and well worked goal with a close range, but calmly taken finish from Dylan Flynn. 7-0 at HT.
The second half began and St. George’s became a lot more physical and competitive and began to cause problems on the counter attack but just missed the final quality to finish a chance. Diamonds we are able to build down the left side again and Tom Stanbridge with his best finish to make it 8-0 and his hat trick. The cake became open with Diamonds building in wide areas but unable to finish from some excellent crosses that came in to the box.
The final quarter started with St. George’s on top, pressing high up the pitch and forcing Diamonds to play long and unable to keep the ball as previously had done in the game. However an excellent solo run from Harry Jackson resulted in a penalty with was finished well by Michael Petrescu. St. George’s were brave and continued to compete and were after a goal that they deserved. Working hard and pressing high they forced the Diamonds defence and midfield in to a few errors, creating a really good chance with 5 minutes left. An excellent strike from just outside the box was equally matched with and excellent save by Jamie Baillie.
Final score of 9-0.
