Westoning FC U13 - 5

Eaton Bray Lions AFCLions faced a top team without two regular players, but never gave up.

Westoning attacked straight from the start and it was only down to excellent defending by James Thiel and Andy Broughton that the half time score was only 0-2.

Sam Marshall and Matt Audouard had good chances but the ball evaded the net every time. Westoning tactics were to pass the ball only about 15 yards at a time from end to end, basically keep possession and get it to a forward for the final shot. Or, on one lucky occasion, try a shot from the touch line and catch the keeper out.

The second half was lively as well. Lions prevented the score from getting really high by applying pressure and not letting Westoning totally dominate. Numerous substitutions by Lions kept them refreshed, but more tackling in midfield would have allowed Lions to go forward again. Jack Coates was Lions' MoM.
