Unbeaten New Park Bulldogs were today's opponents, so Thornes knows they had a hard game to come in very wet conditions.
The game was pretty even and both teams had chances to take the lead. Elliot Hammond made great tackle on edge of the Thornes Penalty Area, to keep the bulldogs at bay.
Thornes moved the ball quickly, Jamie Sharku sent a great ball through to Jack Hudson, who found Joe Eyre whose effort passed just wide of the post.
Bulldogs who took the lead 10 minutes before half time. Thornes were holding a high line and the Bulldogs came on the attack and doubled the lead. Aaron hill just got his finger tips to the ball but couldn't prevent the ball crossing the goal line.
Thornes were pinned on the edge of their area, put played out with some great close one touch football which sent them on the attack. Bailey Hall fired the ball just over the cross bar. Thornes carried on the battle as they showed they believed they could get back into the game. When under pressure the Thornes back four once again held firm. The game still was end to end football, with the home side putting the Bulldogs under pressure. Kieran Lawn chased down a back pass to the Bulldogs keeper, the keeper under pressure, kicked the ball out hitting Lawn in the face, the ball rebounding over the keeper into the net.
Thornes now had the momentum and the upper hand. They applied pressure to level the game, but time ran out and the full time whistle sounded.
A great game of football with the bull Bulldogs edging it 2-1.
