U16 Spitfires edged out in seven goal thriller

Great character to come back from 3-0 down but couldn't hold on

The Spitfires came out of this game against top of the table Fleet a little aggrieved to have lost. The game started with Spitfires looking like a team that hadn't played for 5 weeks. Some poor defending saw the Fleet 2-0 up after just 3 minutes. The rest of the half was though, thankfully, less eventful. It was fairly even affair with both sides restricted to having shots from outside the area. Tom did make a good finger tip save towards the end of the half though to keep the score down to 2-0 at half time.
The second half though started with Fleet breaking down the middle and going 3-0 up. That sparked a better performance from the Spitfires though and on 46 minutes, after good work from Zak and Robert down the right Charlie fired the team back in it. The deficit was reduced again on 54 minutes after Charlie played a great ball through the defence for Dylan who, just beating the keeper to the ball, stabbed it goalwards for Robert to finish off from close range. Fleet began to look under pressure and on 65 minutes the ball broke free outside the edge of the area and Corin connected brilliantly with the ball flying in the top right corner. A cracking goal!
The game then became more even but on 75 minutes, the ball struck Russell's arm in the area and although the ref awarded a goal kick and consulted with the assistant ref who couldn't see it, decided to award a penalty under pressure from the home spectators and players. Tom saved the penalty and the rebound but the striker scored on the 3rd attempt.
So, the positives were a fabulous come back, showing great character and some much more positive play going forward.
Final score 4-3 to Fleet so in the end we lost the game in the first 3 minutes despite the controversy of the penalty.
Man of the match was Charlie.
