A mini-bus hangover might have been the blame for a slow start for the D’s as we stood and watched Pennthorpe score 3 goals inside the first 3 minutes. As the half progressed we slowly found out feet and were stronger in the challenge with Will and Daniel doing all they could to keep Pennthorpe at bay but despite their work we conceded another 3 before the break to go in at half time 6-0 down. What happened in the second half was a transformation as the boys worked their socks off. Tom G gave an encouraging performance in defence and with Fred and Nabil chasing the ball in the middle of the park, we managed to keep a clean sheet for the entire half and almost nicked a goal through Joseph S and some tidy inter play between him and Freddie.
A great second half performance boys just a shame we took a little while to wake up.
Team: Freddie A, Daniel G, Neel P, Nabil Y, Will F, Tom G, Joseph S. IP
