Hereford 8 - 2 Cheltenham
Hereford U14 welcomed Cheltenham on a sunny winters morning in what promised to be a good game.
Hereford started brightly, with Joe Lloyd scoring two within the first 15 minutes after some good team build up play for both goals, however Cheltenham hit straight back with a through ball with the pace of the striker evading our defenders to slot home to make the game 2-1. Hereford didn't allow this to stop them, with Sam Field scoring by lobbing the on-rushing goalkeeper to send Hereford into the first break 3-1 up.
Hereford started the second quarter as they started the first, on the front foot looking to make combinations to open up the Cheltenham defence. Joe Lloyd, managed to break the defence down with a superb 25 yard shot which nestled into the top corner, completing his hat-trick. He then went onto score another two within the quarter to make the score 6-1 going into half time.
The third quarter saw a drop in intensity on both parts, with hereford seeming content to manage the game and not become too exposed, whilst also stopping any attacks that Cheltenham seemed to try and make.
The fourth quarter breathed a little more intensity, with Hereford number 9, Joe Lloyd completing his double hat-trick for the day by rounding off a good team break. Whilst Hereford were caught on the break themselves to make the game 7-2, before Mikaylan broke and cut inside to place his left-footed shot inside the far corner.
The result finished 8-2, in what was a good performance by the Hereford Side. All the best to the Cheltenham Side for the season, and we look forward to seeing you in the return fixture later in the season.
