The game was played in the right spirit, great tempo to the game, Kettering are a very good side and are defensively very solid.
The game was pretty even over the first period, Kettering took the lead through a calm finish after splitting the defence, Halesowen reacted well with a shot that came off the bar, the 3rd quarter was battled well with very minimal chances being created due to both teams preventing the passes to the forward players.
The final quarter Halesowen changed shape and appeared to have a little more of the ball with players looking to create chances, it was good to see players having the confidence to take players on, Halesowen hit the bar for a 2nd time with a great shot from distance only to bounce into the keeper hands.
With the game almost up Halesowen pushed one last time and following a nice cross field pass the Halesowen player never gave up with the Kettering goalkeeper rushing out and cleverly lofted the ball over the keep from a tight angle into the back of the net.
Game ended 1-1 very competitive from two sides that looked to play the game in a positive way, credit to the Kettering coaches as well as they very little instructions given to allow the boys to play the game.
