4s vs Civil Service 6s – 28.10.17
Merton 4s 3-1 Civil Service 6s
This week saw the arrival of Civil Service to Joseph Hood.
Having started the league reasonably well, and with the visitors sitting at the foot of the table, three point was a must!
We started the game well in our usual 3-5-1 formation however every clear cut opportunity that we created we were unable to convert into goals and that was the story for the whole of the first half.
The team talk at the break was positive. Keep doing what we were doing and the goals would come.
Chances galore in the second half however the same composure that we should in the first half was still in our system.
It wasn’t until the 60th minute that we did find the breakthrough after Dom Plumridge’ start left footed finish.
1 soon became 2 through Aaron Loftus, how? I can’t remember! All I do know however is that he double his tally late on and we conceded, to the disappointment of Gubby.
Final score finished 3-1 and the strong start to the season continues. Bring on the next victims!
