Halesowen Town V Kings Lynn
Both teams did very well to compete in the midday heat, the first quarter work rate by Kings Lynn to keep the score level was impressive, Halesowen had majority of the possession linking up well but failed to find the final decisive finish.
The second quarter Halesowen moved the ball quicker and started to unlock Kings Lynn in dangerous areas, Halesowen’s first goal came as a result of a quality bit of skill by the No.12 who flicked the ball over the defender to finish on the volley, Halesowen kept the pressure up and worked a the ball well from the corner area and set back for the 9 to curl the ball over the the keeper from outside the box, Kings Lynn kept working and started to link well and managed to work the ball at times from the back, Halesowen’s defence was strong and quick which prevented any real problems.
As we moved into the third quarter the heat was starting to take its toll on players, a quick counter after recovering the ball saw Halesowen’s 11 race through and calmly fire past the keeper.
The fourth quarter saw Kings Lynn apply more pressure and had their best spell and created chances, their goal came from a stroke from the edge of the box which was well saved by the Halesowen keeper only to see the rebound be headed into the goal, Halesowen continued to work hard and create plenty of chances as Kings Lynn went in search of more goals, Halesowen’s pace was able cause Kings Lynn problems which saw them score a further 3 goals in the last quarter, their last goal and the 9’s hat trick was something special as he watched the ball dropping over his head from 30/35 yds out the technique was perfect as he connected on the volley to lob the keeper.
Kings Lynn’s work rate and the fact they didn’t give up are admirable traits to have in young players and the unity the team has will hold them in good trough out the season.
