NS RTC 2-1 AFC BOURNEMOUTH SHADOW SQUAD
A fantastic advert for JPL football on a beautiful sunny day at the EA Stadium, with NS edging a thrilling encounter played between two well matched sides.
NS were first to show their skill and cutting edge with Joe Smith scoring a well taken goal after a lovely through ball by Louis Bowen, following some fine inter play. 1-0 1st quarter.
NS continued to apply pressure in the second quarter but were always watchful of the quick counter attack from Bournemouth. NS added to their lead with Joe Smith bagging his second after fine wing play from Mason Ball. However, Bournemouth soon equalised after a great cross and well taken finish by their striker. NS 2-1, 2nd quarter.
After NS had the majority of the first two quarters it was AFC Bournemouth who increased the intensity in the last two. The third quarter was a cagey affair, NS perhaps could have added to heir lead but equally Bournemouth were such a threat down the left hand side. 3rd quartwr still NS 2-1.
The final quarter was end to end, with both sides having chances to added to their tally. NS were unlucky not to put the game further out of their oppositions reach, but Bournemouth almost and perhaps should have equalised. They kept coming hitting the post, clipping the bar and working the NS keeper in a manic last 10 minutes.
NS weathered the storm and ran out 2-1 winners. A great game of football played between two well matches sides.
NS would like to wish AFC Bournemouth a safe journey home and all the best for the rest of the season.
