Shortwood U12's 1 v 7 South Glos RTC
South Glos RTC eventually ran out 7-1 winners in a game that was well contested for three quarters.
Both teams started well but it was Shortwood who broke the deadlock on 15 minutes through a fine left footed finish from striker Thomas King. South Glos rallied and were shortly level with a sweetly struck effort from the edge of the box.
The second quarter was tight again until poor defending at the front post gifted South Glos the lead from a left wing corner. Shortwood had the chance to equalise from the spot but the keeper saved well before South Glos extended their lead from the penalty spot at the other end to lead 3-1 at the break.
Chances came and went for both sides until the home side tired in the final chapters of the game and a flurry of fine finishes left the final scoreline 7-1.
A great game and plenty of causes to be optimistic for both sides.
