Bridgewater 13 Clarendon Cottage 1
The Prep 5/6 football team were back in action on Tuesday night as they hosted local rivals Clarendon Cottage. Bridgewater were in confident mood following the AJIS Cup tournament last week and ran out comfortable 13-1 winners in the end.
Despite the score line it was keeper Matthew who was called into action early on, producing a flying save in the first minute of the game. That was to be the visitors only meaningful attempt on goal in the first half, as Bridgewater took control of the match.
Wave after wave of attack rained on the Clarendon defence and goals from Harvey (2), Oliver B (2), Oliver A and Daniel gave Bridgewater a 6-0 lead at half-time.
In an attempt to encourage the team to play more of a passing game, Archie moved to the back alongside Daniel, with Oliver A taking the lead role in midfield. Matthew and Owen went close early in the second half, but it wasn’t long before the Clarendon defence could not contain the Bridgewater attacks. Further goals from Daniel, Ethan A, Daniel, Matthew, Ethan C and a classic team goal resulting in a fine finish from Archie completed the scoring.
The team have made a promising start to the season and if they continue to train well on a Monday evening and work on formation and possession then progress will continue to be made. Well done on a great start to the season Prep 5/6!
