Match vs Yeovil (Home)
Strong performance for Saints against a good, physical Yeovil side.
1st quarter was a similar situation for SSW, started with high intensity applying loads of pressure high up the pitch. Winning the ball high up the pitch was the theme today and it lead to most of our chances through the game. Zak Williams getting the 1st goal of game after an assist from Ethan Board. 2 more goals followed soon after, another from Zak (Finley Adams assist), and Harrison Rushton (Sam James assist). Yeovil scored 2 minutes from the quarter from an exceptional free kick.
As like a lot of games lately, Saints were a little tired in the 2nd. Yeovil took the opportunity to be on top a lot of the time with Saints not offering too much threat. Yeovil scored again this quarter to make it 3-2 at HT.
3rd quarter brought a lot more energy and intensity from Saints. Few good saves from the Yeovil keeper kept us at bay. He couldn't do anything about Zak's hat trick goal, taken from the spot after a handball. Defending high continued to help us create chances as Ethan stole the ball again to slip in Zak for his 4th of the game.
5-2 up going into the 4th, Saints seemed comfortable until an unfortunate own goal sparked Yeovil into life. They scored quickly afterwards to make it a nervy last 8 minutes. Although, Saints kept the ball well and defended bravely to see the game out.
