Match Report - 11 Dec 2011, Maclay Football Club White beat Chesham Athletic
Another good performance from Maclay White. In the first half the team seemed to open up Chesham at will. The team were disciplined and we played a form of football that suits the players. Pat opened the scoring and Chesham soon flowed with a delightful lob to even up the score. The floodgates then opened. We looked threatening at corners and there were headed goals from Hoppy and Pat. Pick of the goals came from Chris and Joe McEntee with a twisting run and firm strike from outside the box respectively. Chesham must have wondered what was going on as the wingers dominated play with Hoppy, Josh and Karl distributing the ball well. Half time saw a score of 8-1. Ethan presence in goal had been particularly impressive, never flustered and always in the right place at the right time, he certainly had a commanding first half. As ever however David, Stan and Hoppy controlled the game. We seemed to have space and time in the first half from the width with which played.
The second half was much as I anticipated when you go into the second half with such a dominating lead. We failed to put the ball on the floor and lost our shape a little. Chesham to their credit closed us down a little quicker than in the first half. Dom then calmly put the ball in the net for a 9-1 lead. Chesham got a consolation goal and the final score ended 9-2.
Well done to the team, the weather wasn't great and the first half performance was sensational.
Man of the match was between Stan, Ethan and Hoppy with Hoppy just pipping them.
Remember we have Astro Training next Friday between 7pm and 8pm. £2 no metal studs and also bring a drink.
