Match Report - 21 Apr 2013, Stalbridge Youth FC 15* lost to Longfleet Youth Cubs
After a fantastic tournament on Saturday we were all back the following day for the penultimate league match against Longfleet. Stalbridge started well, pushing up the pitch to create attacking options with Cormac, Isaac, Louis and Ollie combining well to create chances. Stalbridge were awarded a free kick just within the Longfleet half. William Oswald delivered it right into the six yard box for Cormac to pass it to Isaac for the first goal. Longfleet countered shortly after to level the score. Jack Royle made a number of fine saves but there was little he could do to stop the first goal. The defensive line of Matt, William O and William C with Sam in front, did a fine job of containing the dangerous Longfleet No.6 (I did try contesting the validity of his registration card but it didn't work:) but it is a hard job to do over a full match. Longfleet went 2-1 up by half time. Tristan Marshall did a great job of putting in the tackles when needed and Kristian Javes gave a man of the match performance. Lily goes from strength to strength with every match and gave a consistent performance never shying away from a tackle. Cormac made a great run to the goal line and was brought down and was awarded a penalty which he buried into the back of net. Longfleet then continued to press and scored another 2 goals. A great effort from all, well done!
