Manor Farm vs Cedar Park
Team: Kyle Jillians (GK), Josh Murphy, Benjamin Hickson, Joshua Ketley, Frank Bailey Buron, Ben Crate (Captain), Ahmed Galees, Ben Huddleston, Mason Madzimbamuto
Unluckily Cedar Park started extremely strong scoring the 1st goal in 1 minute. However this didn’t stop Manor Farm from playing really well, with a strong defensive display from Benjamin Hickson and Josh Murphy. In goal was Kyle, who made some cracking saves and protected our goal well. Manor Farm battled well in midfield with superb tackles and non-stop work from Ben Crate, Frank Bailey Buron and Joshua Ketley. Their hard work paid off when Frank took a long throw onto Ahmed’s head and he buried it in the bottom corner to make it 1-1.
In the second half, Ben Huddleston came on as striker saying “I can’t score.” Five minutes later, after great play from all of our midfield, Mason came on and made a great run up the right wing. Each team battled hard non-stop and it was very close. With 5 minutes to go Ben Crate crossed the ball to Ben Huddleston who kicked it into the goal. Manor Farm were now winning 2-1, but unfortunately the Cedar Park striker dashed through our defence and scored in the last minute.
