Scrappy game in which Hereford come out on top
Fantastic morning for a game football, in which both sides put in 100% to put on a good showing of football for the spectators.
Hereford started the first quarter strongly, looking to utilise the pace of the wide areas. This payed off when Sam Barber put the young Bulls 1-0 within the first 5 minutes. Hereford looked to press on with the intensity and found their reward, where a good move payed off when Sam Field found the roof of the net from the edge of the area to send Hereford 2-0 into the first break.
The second quarter saw the game open up, with both sides having equal amount of possession, but not really creating clear chances. Both sides looking to play football when possible but the game having little structure.
The third quarter opened with Shortwood coming out from the start quickly to try and get back themselves back into the game, where a defensive lapse in concentration allowed Shortwoods striker to race through and calmly round the 'keeper before placing into an open net. This spured Shortwood on, however Hereford also increased their intensity and restored their 2 goal lead when Joe Lloyd cut inside and bent his effort into the near top corner. End of the third quarter finished 3-1 to Hereford.
Final quarter and a scrappy affair. Hereford looking to manage the game and kill it off had a lot to deal with from a Shortwood side that aimed to get back into the game. The away side had a goal ruled out for offside, whilst Hereford also came close on a couple of occasions. However Hereford managed the game well and ran out 3-1 winners.
Wish Shortwood all the best for the season and look forward to the return fixture.
