Match Report - 18 Nov 2012, Stalbridge Youth FC 15* beat Corfe Castle
Stalbridge travelled down to Corfe Castle, a lovely sunny afternoon with the castle overlooking the pitch, a great setting for hopefully a great match. Without our regular keepers Isaac went in goal for the first half and Tristan in goal for the second half, and I think it's important to mention that Stalbridge is blessed with a versatile bunch of players who will play in a variety of positions without complaint. Stalbridge started well with Cormac dominating central midfield, again, and creating chances for Louis out on the left and Harry up front. Stalbridge took the early lead with a well taken goal from Louis. Making her debut, Lily put in some great tackles on the right, combining well with Matt and Harry.
Corfe were awarded a free kick just outside the area and executed it perfectly putting the ball into the top corner. At 1 - 1 Corfe gained more confidence moving forward but the steady line of Will C, Will O and Matt held firm. The second goal came from Harry with a nice volley into the back of the net. Bradley, again making his debut, played a great pass into Kristian who finished it off with a goal. The first half finished with Stalbridge 3-1 up.
The second half saw Isaac return to the pitch with Tristan donning the gloves. Stalbridge created lots of opportunities and resulted in a 4th goal from Isaac. Corfe got a goal back but Harry confirmed the victory with a great strikers goal, chasing down the keeper who couldn't keep hold of the ball to then put into the back of the net. Stalbridge started to communicate more with each other and use the width of the pitch which resulted in some great passing play and a victory well earned. Also a special mention for Lily and Bradley who made a real impact on their debut.
