Match Report

The game started with Bilbrook having most of the possession in the opening 20 minutes, but it was Penn Colts that twice came closest to breaking the deadlock only for Darragh to pull off great saves to keep the score 0-0.

With just over 5 minutes until half time we made the break through we deserved. A great ball over the top from Jesse sent Roberto on his way into the Penn box, he held is composure to fire low to the goalkeeper's left and slot the ball home to put us 1 up. A second quickly followed, Josh latched onto a loose ball on the half way line and played a lovely through ball to Aaron, who also slotted low passed the goalkeeper to put us 2 up.

Straight from the restart Jesse collected the ball and again played in Roberto over the top of the defense who this time chipped the goalkeeper superbly to put us firmly in control of the game.

Half Time - Penn Colts 0-3 Bilbrook East

Bilbrook started the second half the same way we had finished the first and we were soon finding ourselves 4-0 up. Jesse again the architect of Penn's mistakes as he played in Roberto once more who coolly finished for his hat-trick. This would then start a Penn Colts fightback as they scored straight from the restart.

Two more quick goals for Penn Colts on the hour mark then made it a nervy final 10 minutes with score now 3-4 in our favour. Then 5 minutes from time Roberto picked the up the ball on the half way line after dispossessing a Penn player and he used his pace to beat two defenders to fire low across the goalkeeper to make is 3-5 and sealed the win for Bilbrook East.
