Blofield huffed and puffed until a solid Dyers defence eventually cracked!
As a spectacle this was nothing special but proved how much this Blofield team has matured and grown as the season has progressed. Keeping the mix of experience with new up and coming talent, this game saw Blofield tested against an experienced team who were capable of providing a strong challenge for the quick feet and passing Blofield team. The game started with Blofield maintaining all the pressure deep in the Dyers half. Although creating one or two chances, the big wide pitch made Blofield play the ball into space rather than feet. The forwards were chasing the ball and it looked like the possession and creativity would simply end up tiring the strike force rather than openning the floodgate for goals. The Dyers back four worked hard and were strong and committed to keeping any Blofield attempt at distance. With the scores 0-0 at half time Blofield looked more frustrated at lack of converting the play into goals.
Re-shaping in the second half into a more traditional 4-4-2, the half continued where the first left off and the frustration grew with Blofield creeping closer to scoring but still unable to find that final touch. As the clocked ticked on into the 60th minute Blofield started to force Dyers back into their own box, passing their way around the defence. Then with more Blofield players running from deep Nat drove a ball low into the box which Matt Nudd deftly poked home! despite the goal and all the pressure Blofield continued to huff and puff, creating chance upon chance with building on the goal lead. Then as the game was coming to and end a neat interchange on the right found Callum Egan whose snap shot fired into the net and won the points for Blofield.
Man of the Match for his hard work and leadership Liam Barnes. He is a revelation in this team and brings the best out of players around him while giving performances himself.
