North Somerset A V Saints South west
North Somerset hosted Saints South West on a cold mid morning game at the Everyone active stadium.
As was cup game was two halves and from the off Saints with their possession based game bossed the opening exchanges and controlled the possession. N/S were working hard and were keeping Saints at bay with some last ditch tackles and some hard work in the centre of the park.
With 15 mins gone N/S were caught out by a long ball over the top and the Saints striker outpaced the N/S defender to Cooley strike the ball past the N/S Keeper.
2nd half from the first whistle N/S came out and pressed high and started to believe they could get something out of this game. The entensity was high and N/S started to dominate to create Possesion and create lots of chances. In Possesion N/S were playing quick 2/3 touch passing and out of Possesion they were working so hard to keep the S/W attack’s at bat. With 15 mins to go N/S won a corner and Jed Fitton White rose above the defence to head home a deserved equaliser.
N/S continued to attack and had 2/3 decent chances to win the game but at the Sam stone Saints weee dangerous on the counter attack but some great defending stopped the dangerous S/S side from scoring a winnner.
The game went to penalties and was always gonn abe a hard way to lose for which ever side didn’t win.
But the 5 N/S penalty takers were exceptional in there spot kicks and scored all 5. And the N/S G/K Matei saved aspot kick to eventually let N/S win the shoot out 5/3 on pens.
Both teams should be proud the way they played and a game was played in great spirit. Credit to all that played.
