Diamonds v South Cheshire RTC
Today Diamonds welcomed a strong South Cheshire RTC who were in really good form coming in to the game.
SCRTC started the brighter of the 2 sides pushing Diamonds back toward the goal and created some chances but the Diamonds defence were resolute and kept SCRTC at bay. Diamonds were creating a couple of chances themselves on the break but the quarter finished 0-0
Diamonds now looking a little brighter were causing problems with their front line causing problems. And the reward came through Tyler Matthews who took a shot from the edge of the box which th GK couldn’t quite get to. 1-0 Back came SCRTC who quickly responded with some neat work down the left to put a cross over to score making it 1-1
With both sides going for the next goal chances were being created either end. But this was a quarter the the defenders and goalkeepers to show their worth. A very entertaining quarter but no more goals. Still 1-1
This was the quarter where SCRTC had that little bit extra on the day in front of goal and broke away to score 2 quick goals around the 70th minute mark. Diamonds were still trying to play and created some dangerous situations in and around the SCRTC box but couldn’t quite find that final crucial touch.
On a day where the game was tense and could have gone either way the players and coaches can be very proud of themselves and the game that they were involved in. Good luck to Mick and South Cheshire RTC for the rest of the season.
