Saints v Elite
Saints Southwest Devon welcomed Elite Football today for our South Elite League game.
Saints started the game brightly and took the lead inside the first few minutes as Sam Clifton beat his man, getting to the byline to cut the ball back to Kelson Pollard to slot home. Elite however started to knock the ball down and develop possession, but a strong defensive shape was hard to break down for Saints.
In the second period, Saints doubled their advantage following a Jacob Wales corner which Finn Hill met and powered home well. Chances were few and far between for both sides but Saints looked dangerous in wide areas. Elite however found a way back in the game as a ball in behind bounced over the keeper and into the net.
2-1 at half time.
In the second period of the game, Saints started to dictate play and keep possession a lot better. However Elite again were gifted a goal after their striker dispossessed the defender on the edge of the box and finished past the keeper.
Saints pressed in the final quarter, their defence remained outstanding throughout and they looked to find the winning goal. They came close on two occasions, Aiden narrowly firing wide, before Kelson could only find the keeper following a cut back from Sam Clifton once more.
A frustrating draw but a big thanks to Elite for making the journey down.
