Match Report

Saintsouthwest vs Taunton

Strong performance from the U14s. Started the game full of energy and enjoying good amount of possession in the opposition's half, early signs for how the game played out.
Taunton we're very strong in transition though, playing direct at times towards their impressive CF. A volley 5 minutes in from that centre forward gave Taunton the unexpected lead.

Saints continued to move the fast and were unlucky to hit the post twice in the 1st quarter. Their tenacity and pressing was rewarded early in the 2nd with 2 quick goals from Harry and Dylan giving us the lead at HT.

Taunton started the 3rd fast and that's how it stayed for the remainder of the quarter. Got caught in transition once or twice made us drop back as we soaked up pressure. Their CF found himself 1v1 in area after a through ball before he shifted and shot past an impressive Ollie. Found ourselves a little lucky to be level by the end of the 3rd.

4th quarter was return to an overall dominate performance for Saints. Hitting the woodwork twice more whilst the Taunton GK pulled of 3 high quality saves. The ball spending most of the time in the opposition's final 3rd, Saints could've been more ruthless in front of goa to make the game comfortable. Taunton still  offering a threat in transition, capitalised on a mix up at the back 70 minutes in. Their CF completing his hat-trick with a 25 yard lob. Few more shots for Saints were all blocked or saved as Taunton ran out as 2-3 victors.

Tons of positives, great atmosphere and loads to build on.
