Good win for Juniors
The lads are stringing quality performances together now, and this was a very good win in trying conditions on a raw day. Greetland are no easy beats, and they battle until the end. Today though the lads outplayed them with some superb football on a terrible sloping, uneven, muddy pitch in the first half.
Greetland went ahead after 15 mins when the winger finished neatly, but that was against the run of play, and a penalty was awarded when Harry was brought down by the keeper. Ethan stepped up to take the pen and tucked it in the corner to level matters.
Second half, and Greetland were battling back into it, and the 11 players plus injured Max were flagging on the heavy pitch and freezing conditions. The lads were still creating chances as well though, and a ball in by Harry on the right saw Niall take a snap volley that the keeper reacted well to save, but Jacob was on hand for the rebound to calmly control and fire into the net.
The lads defended manfully to keep Greetland out and hold on for a good win.
