Stourbridge victorious in entertaining tie.
Top of the table Stourbridge took the points in a hard fought match in a wIndy Vale of Evesham
The first half was tight, skillful and both sides played with pace. The bulk of the chances were going to the visitors, however, Eveshams workrate was excellent, and they responded to the quality of the opposition in a positive way, with both sides passing well and creating chances despite the blustery conditions. The half gave up a single goal, which went to the visitors 5 mins into the second quarter, to make it 0-1. All to play for in the second half.
Despite a strong start from Evesham, the game was really decided in the 3rd quarter. With the wind at their backs, the visitors scored 3 goals to take the game away from the home team and make it 0-4 into the final quarter. The game rather petered out in the last quarter, with a single further goal to the visitors, however some great commitment from both sides to the end.
Overall a fair result, Stourbridge were solid at the back, took their chances well, and showed why they are top of the league. Great credit however to Evesham, with two excellent debut performances from Joe and Callum, and as a team gave their all and ensured this was a competitive game throughout.
Good luck to Stourbridge for the rest of the season.
