First match of the season and the boys were really looking forward to the game after practising hard Monday and Tuesday.
Copthorne lost the toss and Caterham kicked off, the side looked very solid with Karan in goal who improved massively as the match went on and a back three of the quiet but solid Jamie, Akshay organising and Janith tackling well. The boys lost two goals in the first half due to a little confusion in defence but soon recovered and continued to work hard.
In the second half we were kicking downhill and the boys spent most of the time in the opposition half. Harry showed some good touches in attack and never gave up. The match became very competitive and David and Sonny put in some heavy tackles and worked tirelessly. Eventually with five minutes to go the boys got their reward with a breakaway goal scored by captain Elias with a low finish into the corner. With a little more time the boys could have got the draw their hard work deserved. It should be a good season. AS
