On 1st October Abbotswood took on Blackfield in a 7 a side match at Abbotswood. The team played really well with 3 goals scored by Tom, Sam and Hedley.
The match started at a very slow pace with the ball by the half way line. The first goal had a lovely build up with Sam setting up a great ground cross to pick out Hedley who picked his time perfectly to put the ball gently in the back of the net.
The second goal of the match was smacked through the keeper’s legs by Tom from the edge of the box.
As we came into the second half, our spirits were up. A lovely through ball from the Blackfield midfielder came over and Jack was in the right place at the right time to put the ball out for a corner. The ball sailed in to the box and Tom was the favourite to get there but unfortunately, chested the ball in his own net which had Nico scrambling. The good thing was, our heads didn’t drop. We had lots of chances but could not get the ball past the keeper. Blackfield had chances as well but were saved by Nico or blocked by the defenders. 2 minutes till the end of the match and one last chance to go 3-1 up. A split second later Thomas picked (amazing through ball) out Sam, who chipped it over the keeper to make the score 3-1 to Abbotswood. Full time and Abbotswood win 2 games out of 2.
