South Gloucestershire RTC vs Wilts RTC
South Gloucestershire RTC welcomed Wilts RTC to the wonderful venue of Lockleaze Sports Centre for what was a fantastic advert of positive development football in the JPL.
The weather played its part in this contest, with wind, rain and sunshine creating some interesting playing conditions!
The first quarter got off to an even start with both teams trying to assert their authority on the game. Wilts had the better of the early possession with South Glos adopting a narrow shape and looking to pounce on the counter.
The early domination of possession paid off for Wilts after a good move was initially intercepted by South Glos, the Wilts forward line pressed quickly and were rewarded with a well taken goal. This high press became a theme for both teams in the following 30 minutes or so and it resulted in a number of errors from both teams allowing their opposition to score some goals. A slick first time passing team goal from South Glos just prior to half time ensured the hosted lead 3-2.
The third quarter was again evenly tested, the only goal coming from a fast paced counter attack from South Glos.
The first few moments of the fourth quarter saw Wilts score a high quality and well deserved goal, intercepting and counter attacking a South Glos attack with a fantastic switch of play from their right back to their left forward, a perfect first touch followed by some skill and then a very tidy finish. 4-3, game on.
RTC Wilts goal seemed to spur South Glos on and they turned the tempo and accuracy of their passing up a few gears which resulted in a few well taken goals. As the quarter neared its finish RTC Wilts looked to push players forward in an atempt to get back into the game, however, with South Glos getting into their groove it opened up a lot of space for them to exploit, resulting in a few more well taken goals.
Meaning the final score was RTC South Glos 9 - 3 RTC Wilts.
South Gloucestershire RTC would like to thank Wilts RTC for a great game and wish them the best for the season ahead.
