Match Report - 02 Dec 2012, Stalbridge Youth FC 15* beat Sturminster Marshall
We were blessed with perfect playing conditions for the match against Sturminster Marshall. Stalbridge started brightly getting to the ball first and passing nicely amongst each other and creating attacking chances. Harry was quick to the ball and created a couple of chances and with increased pressure from Isaac down the left wing he scored from a tight angle to take the lead. Sturminster tried to come back on the attack but the solid line up of Ben in defensive mid and the back line of Matt, Cormac and Will meant that these came to nothing. Stalbridge increased the pressure with a well worked ball from Will on the left through to Isaac who then ran straight down the left and drilled on a carbon copy of the first goal. Stalbridge had more opportunities with Cormac and Tristan hitting the post. Lily and Bradley put in a consistent performance on the right and Louis was unlucky not to capitalise on the break. Stalbridge created more chances with Kristian unlucky not to connect to score but Matt got his name on the scoresheet with a well taken goal. This was shortly followed up with a great goal from Tristan. With Sturminster playing down the hill their plan was to shoot at will and Harvey was on his toes to keep Stalbridge in the game. Sturminster came back with a well taken goal from their big no. 12 and they capitalised on some Stalbridge confusion during a goal kick. Another two goals from Isaac put the match beyond Sturminster though they kept their heads up and got another to take the final score to 6 - 3. Another great performance from Stalbridge.
