At Home Against Espial Community FC
It’s 7 v 7 For The Last Game Of The Season
Our visitors only brought seven players today so to keep Tevie’s fair play ethos going we matched them and fielded seven players.
In the Tevie line up today were Josh B, Rhys H, Alex S, James N, Ben T, Bradley G, Mckai W, James W & Zakarie S. Josh E & Ben C shared goal keeper duties.
As avid readers of the match reports you may have noticed that no positions have been assigned to our lads, apart from the keepers, that’s because it would take far too long and you’d be fast on before you reached the end! Today was about having fun so the lads played in various roles and positions to ensure everyone got plenty of game time, so we exploited the roll on, roll off sub allowance... A LOT.
Right, now to the action!
For the first 10 to 15 minutes neither team really got to grips with the vast amount of space available on the pitch, so the game play was a bit disjointed. Tevie were the first team to click on and started the match in earnest when Bradley G dipped his shoulder to beat an oncoming defender and took the game’s first shot. The keeper half saved it and took the sting out of the ball, but Alex S seized the opportunity and banged the ball home. Tevie 1 Espial 0. It wasn’t long before Rhys H got on the assist wagon and sent a beauty through to Bradley G who wasted no time in claiming Tevie’s second. Tevie 2 Espial 0. Tevie are on the attack again as Alex S battles hard to win the ball and sends it to Bradley G. Bradley G watches the ball drop and bang, it’s his second. Tevie 3 Espial 0. Ben T wins the ball in midfield and spots Bradley G on his own. Ben T sends a cracking ball over the defenders which lands at Bradley G’s feet. Bradley G side steps the keeper and slots the ball in the bottom left corner for his hat-trick! Tevie 4 Espial 0. Great work from James W & Zakarie S win Tevie a free kick in a good position. Josh B steps up to take the free kick and sends in a lovely over-the-top ball to Bradley G. 007 sharp shooter Bradley G lets rip and find’s the net AGAIN! Tevie 5 Espial 1. Espial don’t give in and managed to sneak one back just at the end of the first half. Tevie 5 Espial 1.
It’s all changed around for the second half as Tevie rotate their subs again. Espial dig deep and come back at Tevie as they pick their game up and start attacking Tevie’s goal. James W, Rhys H and Mckai W defend brilliantly and make it very hard for Espial to break through. James N wins the ball and plays it to Ben T. Ben T plays another beauty through the defenders to find Josh B. Josh B sends in a nice little curler right into the roof of the net. Tevie 6 Espial 1. Espial battle on but cannot find a way through as Josh E and Ben C keep a clean sheet in the second half and bring the game to a close. Tevie 6 Espial 1.
A super team performance today lads...what a cracking way to finish the season. Well done!
