BAMPTON 5 v 3 Ducklington
There are milestones in our progress as a team and today was one of them. We had a game plan, which we worked on in training this week on how to contain a team and play as much as possible in final 3rd of the field.This takes a lot of effort and I am so impressed at how well we did this today. We didn't give opposition a second on the ball, fighting for every ball. Once we win it back, we played forward quickly, getting into scoring position with speed. .All over the pitch we won today. Making sure we completed for 1st ball every time. .Dan is so solid in goal, playing as a last defender whenever opposition goes long. Defence won everything, Charlie, Euan and Jack were brilliant in the central defensive positions, totally dominating opposition forwards. Toby and Jamie are our secret weapons.They get forward as much as possible, supporting midfield, Toby getting a great goal inside opposition box. .Zack and James give everything, every game. Both worked tirelessly today, with just about everything a midfielder needs. Their distribution today was a step up and it opened up so many chances for us. .Lachy and Nathan chased down everytime the ball came out from keeper, not giving their defence time to set up any attacks. Lachlan getting a great goal. .Up front, Angus, Alfie and Elias again worked to control the space in front of goal, so opposition couldn't get ball out. Also all three are direct to goal when we have possession. Alfie getting another goal, that's goals in every league game so far and Angus getting 2, one a brilliant free kick. .The big thing for me today was our appetite and energy. We pressed really well and I am so proud at how much we put into the game. We tired a bit last 10 mins, but I told the boys, that was because we won the game comfortably in first 50 mins.
