The final game of the season at home vs Old Bristolians E saw a close game played end to end at a high tempo. The first half saw numerous chances at either end of the pitch right from the push back and lots of well worked play lead to a couple of early chances on Old Bristolians goal. Old Bristolians managed to break away on several occasions but some great defensive work limited their ability to get shots away. We took the lead after a lovely ball from Mark Berry found Stuart Greenwood just on the outside of their D who then drove in, taking the ball away from their two defenders, before a strong shot to put the ball in the back of the goal.
The second half started in the same manner as the first with end to end play creating several chances for both teams. Our second goal came from a shot just inside the D from Mark Berry whilst Stuart Greenwood managed to distract the OBs defence from the balls path. Towards the end of the game OBs cranked up the pressure on our defence with numerous opportunities to get back into the game. Their goal came from a short corner with the first shot being played to two players at the back post who then managed to score. The pressure continued but we managed to clear our lines and hold the ball in their half for the final few minutes before the end.
A thoroughly enjoyable game to play and a well-deserved 2-1 win. Some really nice simple play allowed us to work our way through an OBs team who played well to get a final win of the season.
