Gateshead 3s Vs WB& Tynemouth 3s
A fight for Pride
It was the usual frustrating week from a selection and availability point of view, with Teasdale , Camsell, Liddle, McMahon and Bell stepping up from the 4s to plug the gaps. Good to see Wilson on the side line supporting after his injury and surgery.
Gateshead started with the usual dynamic counter attacking hockey with Read and Chapman bossing the midfield against the experience and quality of the Tynemouth team. Some slick passes and an ariel up to Camsell allowed him to to put Chapman in for a well taken goal on the reverse to put gateshead in front. Only to be cancelled out within minutes by a well taken touch from a lifted ball. Good battling from the entire team saw the half time break at 1-1.
A rallying team talk calling for composure, early passing and continued effort saw Gateshead up for the challenge and wanting blood along with 3 points.
The second half start saw Gateshead defend deep as Tynemouth pressed high ( the story of our season so far). Another arial allowed gateshead to break quickly and Camsell to score taking the Gateshead into the lead. Composure needed and and resolute defending called for , but unfortunately another quick reply from Tynemouth to take it to 2-2. with Gateshead visibly tired Tynemouth started to capitalise in the middle and once again nicked a late winner.
Guys you played with heart and passion this week and were faultless to a man well done
