KTFC Reds U16 vs AFCRD U16
Kettering Town welcomed AFC Rushden and Diamonds today for the 1st game of the season.
It was a great day for football and was setup to be a great match with to very good teams, who have a great work ethic to football.
The game started with great intensity and took time to settle, Diamonds with a very fast striker hit the forward channels early, but Kettering dealt with this very well and with a couple of great sharp saves from Ben Westwood made sure KTFC stayed in the game at the start. KTFC started to dominate the first half for long durations but both teams ended up having chances that were not taken
Half time came after 40 minutes 0 - 0
The change came in the second half when KTFC changed formation and AFCRD were much more on the front foot than KTFC this allowed the game to swing and the first goal was scored after a breakdown in the KTFC defence, a GK save but then the follow up was pounced on to put the ball in the back of the net - the scorer being Edward Panter 0 - 1 AFCRD.
The game ebbed and flowed, KTFC made some player positional changes and deservedly got back in the game 5 minutes from end of play
The game ended 1 -1 was a great spectacle of great football by two very good teams
Thanks to AFCRD for playing their part in the game and we shall see you all again soon
