Reserves See Off Ascott

Continued good form sees Brize through as 4-1 winners.

Brize Reserves came into the game off of the back of a Friendly win away at Hanney 66 where they ran out 6-2 winners in a game that in truth, could have been won by more. This week’s game at home to Ascott Reserves started as the last left off, with Brize on the front foot from the off and the direct running of the returning Haydn Parker and the ever improving Daniel Thomas proving hard for the visitors towering defenders to deal with. Within the first 15 minutes of the game, this directness led to a goal, unfortunately manager Mark Carpenter was retrieving a ball from the stream, so I'm not quite sure what happened, but am led to believe it was a sweet half volley from Daniel Thomas, 1-0 Brize and thoroughly deserved.

This goal only game Brize more confidence, the defence were talking and happy to receive the ball, something you couldn't have said 2-3 weeks ago, Lee Litton and Daniel Simon in front of the back four were full of running as ever and Jason Hirshfield was stringing things together nicely (still no nutmegs). The second goal was always coming in a first half filled with Brize half chances, one of these half chances was a run down the right wing from Daniel Thomas, it looked as though all he could do was cross the ball into the 6 yard box, and he did, but it wasn't a very good cross, however, it was a goal, nobody seemed to notice it had gone in, or they just didn't believe it, but Brize were not complaining and it was thoroughly deserved. The final came after a scramble in the visitors goal, Lee Litton pounced on the loose ball and absolutely smashed the ball onto the underside of the bar and it smashed back into the back of the net. A few more chances before half time came and passed them by but all in all, a fantastic half and Brize did not look troubled.

As expected, the visitors had clearly had a few harsh words shared at half time from their manager, and it showed on the pitch as they committed more men forward, 10 minutes of Ascott pressure did result in a goal, and unsurprisingly it was from a long throw that had been troubling the hosts in the first half without really coming to anything, this time the ball seemed to be put in the back of the net by our very own Ciaran Clarke, I'm sure he will deny it. This goal gave Brize a bit of a kick and the rest of the half was one sided again, with Ascott having limited clear cut opportunities, and once Scott Peaper lobbed the keeper in the last 10 minutes, it was game over and 3 points to Brize. Another week, another win and confidence is on the rise. Roll on Eynsham next week....
