Hereford made to pay for missed chances.
Hereford U14 welcomed Galaxy FC to Pegasus on a wet morning, with the pitch slick it opened itself up for a good game of football.
Galaxy FC started the quickest, capitalising on a run of poor defensive errors, to open the scoring with a finish from a tight angle, after going down 1-0 within the opening minutes, Hereford started to try and get a foothold on the game and they could of got themselves level if they had finished there chances that thy created. Both teams having good possession and looking to play football the right way. Hereford then have a free kick away just before the break in a dangerous area, and the taker obliged by putting it above the keeper, and even though he got a hand to it, he couldn't keep it out. 2-0 going in at the break.
After the break both teams went out looking to play football, with Hereford looking to raise the intensity, throughout the quarter both teams saw there share of possession, however Hereford probably saw the majority and looked to impose themselves without creating clear cut chances or putting away the chances they did create. 2-0 at half time.
Third quarter saw much of the same, with Hereford seeming to control possession, but Galaxy FC looking threatening any time they did break and forcing a good save from the Hereford 'keeper. However, from the resulting corner, it managed to move across the six yard box without anybody getting a touch on it, with a Galaxy striker seeming suprised and tapping into an empty net. Another mistake resulting in a goal, 3-0 Galaxy. Hereford still pushing on and creating chances, however not being clinical enough infront of goal.
Fourth quarter and with Hereford trying to push on to get themselves back into the game, Galaxy always looked to counter with the pace of their striker. Hereford still couldnt create anything clear cut, taking one too many touches around the edge of the box, and Galaxy managed to make it four after some good defending, the ball broke to the edge of the box, where the striker fired a shot into the corner of the net.
The game finished 4-0, with a lesson of being clinical infront of goal, and starting well a message to the Hereford Side. Some good football from both sides. All the best for the rest of the season to Galaxy FC and safe travels home.
