WSM vs North Somerset RTC Pinks
A local derby that was always going to be a fast paced, competitive game!
The first quarter started with early pressure from North Somerset on the WSM goal. Weston stood firm and maintained their shape and defended well. Both teams fought well and showed the fight and determination of a local derby. At the end of the first quarter the game ended 2-2 with each team exchanging blows and not taking defeat easily.
Second quarter didn't show as many goals but North Somerset came out the blocks with high pressure, ending in a world class goal from North Somerset's CM from outside the box, leaving the WSM keeper with no chance. WSM showed their fight and began to keep possession and show an attacking threat to try and force themselves back into the game.
The third quarter WSM really came out the blocks with our LW showing great skills and directness in getting at the North Somerset defence, creating opportunities for WSM to score. WSM kept the pressure up and showed expression and confidence when going forward. North Somerset showed their talent and gave WSM a few troubles on the counter attack but WSM stood firm and held resilient in defence, leaving the third quarter 0-0 and 3-2 North Somerset in the game.
WSM knew that they needed to be positive and give everything in the final quarter, which they did. Showing that confidence to go on and get an equaliser. North Somerset had chances that threatened the WSM goal with the WSM keeper staying big and protecting his goal. WSM went all out attack and pushed forwards taking a few more risks in the attacking sense. Leaving it till a last minute corner, where WSM risked everything and snatched a well deserved 3-3 draw.
WSM wish North Somerset all the best for the season and look forward to going to them in a couple of weeks.
