Gloucester entertained Shortwood in this local derby.
The first quarter was a close affair with both sides trying to get the ball down & play football. Shortwood had the lions share of the ball & was a threat up front with their pace but found a solid City defence. Gloucester were limited in their attack as the final ball was letting them down or was just intercepted in the nick of time.
Second quarter was similar affair to the first with both sides trying to get the first goal to give that little extra confidence that both teams need at this stage of the season. Sadly from City point it was Shortwood that broke the deadlock, but instead of collapsing, City pulled their sleeves up & battle back to keep the score at 0-1 at the break.
With a more positive out look City started the 3 quarter looking to get back into this game. Unfortunately this was a quarter to forget as them as Shortwood were deadly as they punish every City mistake hitting 4 goals with out reply.
The chat at the break was if they can score 4 goals then so can we but we need to cut out the mistakes. Now with new belief City went looking to not lose the last quarter. The quarter was back to the first two quarters and was a tight affair then a breakthrough for Gloucester when Charlie Daniels was fouled in the box PENALTY.
Daniels bravely stepped up & scored, here we go thought everyone we can win the last quarter but within a couple of minutes poor marking let Shortwood grab the equaliser and quarter finished in a draw.
The was an even contest between these side except for a 3 quarter collapse by City. The return match hopefully with be another good contest.
