NWL Div 2 U15 Lambourn Sports 3 - 5 CCCFC Print
Season 15/16 - Under 15

The colts made the long journey to play Lambourn Sports this morning and it was made all the worthwhile after a fantastic team performance inflicted Lambourns first defeat of the season. Eddie opened the scoring on 5mins with his usual composed finish when 1 on 1 with the keeper. James extended the lead after 21mins when he reacted the quickest after the keeper failed to hold onto Dan's free kick. We remained camped in the Lambourn half and our pressure told as Eddie notched his 2nd on 26mins. Our lead could have been greater as Luca went close on a couple of occasions. 0-3 at HT.

The 2nd half started in a whirlwind as Lambourn scored 2 very quick goals in the first 2mins, we were in danger of undoing all of our good work. The colts quickly regrouped and started to play as they did in the first half, Matt made sure of this as he scored our 4th on 44mins, chances came and went at both ends, Jasper made an unbelievable save to keep our 2 goal cushion. The Lambourn manager told me it was the best save he had seen this season, a great compliment, it was that good! Dan had a shot cleared off the line, some had thought it had crossed the line, Eddie hit a terrific shot from outside the box that beat the keeper all ends up, but struck the underside of the bar and bounced the wrong side of the goal line for us. The game was made safe on 80mins when Luca latched onto a long clearance from Eddie, Luca showed great pace and composure to calmly slot the ball past the keeper. Lambourn were not finished though, straight from the kick off they swept forward to nick a 3rd right on the final whistle. A terrific game played by 2 good footballing teams. a massive thank you to the parents for their fantastic support this morning, its very much appreciated.

Man of the match: Difficult to choose between Tom T & Kryzstof, so I'm giving it to both of them for some superb defending in difficult conditions. Well done guys.

Next game: Malmesbury away on Sunday 7th Feb
