Match Report

Back to league action.

We welcomed Rochester back to Brookfield for our 3rd meeting of the season, having beaten them previously in the league and cup. I wanted a strong, fast start to assert our dominance and get a stranglehold on the game early on. I was pleased with how we did this and we raced into a 3-0 lead at halftime, with goals from the returning Alfie after his leg break and 2 from Leo.

Our achilles heel this season is putting together 2 halves of good quality football, especially if we are dominant in the 1st half. I told the boys that i wanted a strong start to the 2nd half to not let Rochester back into the game. Once again this happened and Rochester started to apply pressure and pulled a goal back. However, we regained our composure and settled the game down with Josh adding a 4th goal to seal the win.

We now look forward to a big local derby next week against our Juniors! Both teams have won all 8 games so this is a vital game in the context of the league title.

 Man of the match. Alfie
