AFTC v SOCCA
On a bright sunny day both sides started well and Andover took the lead on 9 mins after good play down the right hand side Noah Bailey fired home from the edge of the box. Both teams then started to create chances and SOCCA got a deserved equaliser just before half time when a long ball through sent the forward clear and he made no mistake from close range.
Half time 1-1.
The second half started a lot more cagey with both sides trying to play neat football on a difficult pitch. The game seemed to have gone in SOCCA's favour when the Andover keeper was sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity and from the resulting free-kick they took a 2-1 lead via a great finish. Andover didn't give up and kept pressing. On 59 mins Alfie Budgell picked the ball on the half way line and after gliding through a couple of challenges finished well to make the score 2-2. Both sides then created chances and it was Andover who went 3-2 up with a good finish by Archie Pinchbeck following good work from Alfie Budgell and Hayden Jones . SOCCA threw everything at Andover in the last few minutes but the defence held firm and stand in keeper Murray Andrews only had to make 1 good save to protect Andover's lead.
Final score 3-2.
