NS RTC v RTC Southampton
NS welcomed RTC Southampton to the EA Stadium for what proved to be an entertaining encounter.
After last weeks surprise loss, and with the wind behind them, NS set about Southampton with renewed purpose and were soon rewarded with a well taken goal by Will Brown. Bodhi Archer soon doubled the lead in a dominant period for the hosts. However, a momentary lapse in concentration allowed Southampton a way back in with a soft goal.
The second quarter was a familar pattern, with NS pulling further ahead with a superb goal by Bodhi Archer with the keeper just getting his hands to the shot. NS then had a goal ruled out for offside. Once again NS were culprits of their own downfall allowing Southampton back into the game, again with a soft goal following some indecision. However, an absolute worldie goal by Bodhi Archer, completing his hat-trick in the process, edged NS further ahead. Half time 4-2.
In the third quarter, NS playing against the wind, continued to apply pressure on the Southampton goal. After being thwarted once by the onrushing Southampton keeper, Joe Smith scored to put NS 5-2 up.
In the final quarter, NS had further chances to put the game out of reach, but some good defending and fine goalkeeping by their stand in keeper, kept NS at bay. Southampton got a late goal to make the last 5 minutes interesting, but NS held firm to run out comfortable winners 5-3.
NS would like to wish RTC Southampton all the best for the rest of the season.
