Match Report - 11 Nov 2012, Maclay Football Club White beat Taplow FC
Maclay White had not played for 3 weeks but their first half performance did not show it. Maclay took an early lead with a nice through ball from Josh R to Josh Lee. One on one and he calmly slide the ball past the keeper at the near post. Saif struck a second with a well taken goal driven into the corner. Goal of the game came again from Saif as he took on 4 of the Taplow defence, they could not manage his footwork and he tapped in for a third. Ben hit a fourth before half time with great pace and a superbly driven shot just inside the post. In truth it could have been more. Taplow struggled to breakdown a very solid defence with George proving impossible to pass.
The second half was a different game and the football as we predicted became a little ugly. Taplow were luck to score either of their goals. The score ended up 4 - 2. The first half display was worthy of the victory. A good team performance again with a generally impenetrable defence and pace on the wings and and upfront.
Man of the match went to Saif who turned the Taplow defence inside out. Well done.
