Match Report - 22 Apr 2012, Maclay Football Club White drew with Taplow United Youth

Maclay have played Taplow twice this season and failed to secure any points. We knew we were going to be in for a physical and challenging game. The first half ended in stalemate. Both teams had opportunities but failed to take them. Maclay probably lingered on the ball too long at times failing to release quickly. The pitch certainly did not help Maclays style of play.
The start of the second half saw the best play of the match. We began to control the play from the middle of the pitch pushing the ball wide. The defence stood firm and with George dominating in goal the game was certainly ours to win. The back four continued their superb performances this year.
Maclay were then awarded a free kick twenty yards out, Josh stepped over the ball and Chris placed it perfectly in the bottom left corner. Henry and Okemdi came close on a couple of occasions and we were unlucky not to be two up. Taplow then began to pass neatly and a shot driven at the defence earned a free kick. As Maclay built the wall the Taplow player took a quick free kick. Maclay were some what dumbstruck having been told by the ref to play to his very busy whistle. Taplow to their credit had pulled it back level, chipping the wall as it was forming up.
The game continued at pace and ended up a draw. Man of the match went to George for a very solid performance in goal. Well done to all.
The boys came off worn out but not as worn as the poor pea rattling in a small piece of plastic.
One game to go and all to play for.
