PJS vs Woodside (Home)
We all came to the field to play our first long-awaited home match against Woodside. Our great captain, Isaac, and Mrs Eales told us our tactics and when to make the right move. We all ran on to the pitch full of energy and ready to start the game.
The whistle blew and we were off. A quick break from Woodside but that was easily managed. A goal kick from our keeper, Jack, restarted the game. Then it went slightly downhill for us as we let in an early goal but there was still hope. We made a break for it from the centre kick and a cross flew into the box for Lukas, he only just missed the top-bins (top corner). A lucky cross from Woodside made it 0 - 2 but that didn't damper our team spirits.
We were a quarter of the way through the match, with a few more chances for both sides and Woodside had managed to slip another goal past us. Our goal chances were all so close but the Woodside keeper was determined to keep a clean sheet. As half-time approached both coaches were thinking about the sub bench. Mere minutes before half-time, Woodside had gained another corner and their attackers broke free of our defence which left Jack with no protection and the ball ended up in the back of the net.
The second half saw Will come off the bench and Kenzie moved into attack - we were ready to play. Woodside started but didn't get far and we were soon on the ball with an early attempt on goal. Isaac, now in goal, made some excellent saves (as had Jack) and only one Woodside shot found the back of the net in the second half. This left the final as score 0 - 5.
We came home not disheartened and ready to play our first league match next week.
