Despite the snow on the ground and biting cold wind, Spitfires got their second outing since mid January.
The Spitfires started brightly and some crisp passing led to Samien getting an early shot on goal on the stretch but it was tamely hit to the Curley Park goalkeeper. As the half wore on Curley Park started to win the midifeld battle and playing balls over the Spitfires defence started to get some joy with a string of corners. After the first 10 minutes, Spitfires play was scrappy. It wasn't until the half hour mark though that Curley Park took the lead from a free kick wide on the right was knocked in at the far post. The half time score was 1-0 which was probably about fair.
The second half saw Spitfires play better football but Curley Park were dangerous on the break with their long balls. Both teams had good chances; Spitfires mostly falling to Dylan whose shots all found their goalkeeper who did have a good game. Spitfires hit the bar and Corin also had a good shot well saved but just couldn't find an equaliser. With the boys pressing for that elusive goal, Curley Park doubled their lead in injury team with another long ball up the middle.
Man of the match for Spitfires was Corin who worked tirelessly in midfield despite a broken right boot. Russell was a strong contender for the award with 2 excellent goal line clearances in the second half.
