Bodorgan snatched defeat from the jaws of victory
Valley returned to Cae Cob with a strong team but Bodorgan had the confidence to beleive they were equipped to win the match. Early play saw Valley settle on the ball quickly they put in some dangerous crosses and managed to score a scrappy first goal. The midfield area was keenly contested and the game was a stale mate. Bodorgan then had a purple patch for ten minutes and scored with a fine Luke Allaway header from a corner delivered by Aaron Jones. Bodorgan pushed on from there and Danny Connolly latched onto a ball in the box and scored his first quickly followed by a second chipping the goal keeper in style. At this stage there was only one team in it and at 3v1 up Bodorgan looked as if they could force more goals. The Bodorgan players took their foot off the gas and allowed Valley to get a foot hold just minutes before half time to make it 3v2, a nice cross and finish.
After a tough match v Cefni the Bodorgan players were looking a bit fatigued the wind was against them and slowly the Valley team got more success when they again crossed and finished. At 3v3 the game was in the balance then the Bodorgan goal keeper failed to gather a ball and the ball popped up into the path of an valley forward to make it 3v4. That was a killer blow for the Bodorgan boys.
With only 12 minutes remaining Bodorgan threw caution to the wind and went 3 at the back and forced the play towards Valley but were always vulnerable to a counter attack. Two of these saw Valley make the score line look comfortable. The game was in the balance right up to the 80th minute.
Bodorgan have to be more positionally aware and when the engine room is struggling more hands need to man the pumps. Elliot patterson was the stand out player for Valley and Bodorgan never really got to grips with his play in midfield and at time dictated play. Some times when there is a fire to put out in midfield more help is required.
The score line is very disappointing for Bodorgan who were not good enough on the day but six goals flattered Valley.
