With grassington sitting 2 places above us in the table and us losing 7-2 at the last meeting the game had been set as a marker to see how far we have come .
With the players in there positions grassington started us off but staight away the ball was ours with the ball been intercepted by JOE and with a few good passes left KAI though on goal and he carmly placed the ball into the back of the net making it 1-0 with only a few minutes gone .
Grassington started again and a few passes they were in our box before a good clearance by WILL which fell to OLLIE who play a long ball up to send JOE though on goal to make it 2-0 with only 10 minutes gone .
The next 15 minutes to half time was a battle of the midfield with grassington looking for a way back into the game and with only a few minutes to go a good save by CARTER sent the ball back into play and a goal line clearance by JOHNNY made sure it was 2-0 at half time .
A quick start by grassington saw our lead cut with a good shot leaving CARTER in goal no chance making it 2-1. The kick off saw grassington back with the ball but JOSH captain for the day saw the danger and cleared the ball up field to ELIJAH quick thinking passing to KAI who played the ball though for JOE to score his 2nd of the game 3-1 with 12 minutes to go.
A quite 5 minutes saw SAM going in with some good tackles as both teams try to take control with play all been in the middle of the park grassington finally got forward with WILL clearing for a corner .The corner came in with the strong winds now playing a part blowing the ball into the net without anyone touching it setting up a hard final 5 minutes .
Now with the clock ticking down grassington were showing signs of a come back after a lucky 2nd goal and the wind on there side the 3rd goal came making it 3-3 and setting up a fast attacking 2 final minutes . The kick off saw some good passing again and with KAI cutting open a chance and sending a powerful strike on to the post .The keepers kick out saw the ball fall to the feet of JOSH who ran down the wing to cross in only for the ball to come back to him to fire just wide of the far post with the clock running down JOHNNY found a opening only to see his shot saved by the keeper . A quick break by grassington saw JOE tracking back to time his tackle perfectly to send the ball out of play . With the ball bouncing around WILL found himself in the area and with a strong shout for a penalty only for the ref to blow for full time finishing 3-3 .
Altough it was a draw the team played there socks off and showed everyone how far they have come and should be proud of there display as i was . if i could give everyone the man of the match i would but having to pick 1 this week its JOE not only for his 2 goals but for tracking back and helping out the defence .
WELL DONE LADS AND KEEP IT UP Phil 🙂
