After an early season rest, the Panthers were back in action after their impressive opening day performance.
We came up against a very strong Enfield Rangers side that looked as though they’d been playing together for a long time!
It was a tough first half and despite lots of effort the boys were struggling to get out of their half.
Jordan and Ethan worked hard up front and as the half wore on we had more of the ball and forced a couple of corners.
The second half was much improved display. The boys defended really well and concentrated hard on their marking and tackling. Both Hectar and Theo ran their socks off to get back and make some goal saving blocks….one harshly adjudged to have hit a hand in the process! A good run and shot from Sam went close and Oli and Wilbur worked well to win back the ball and passed the ball well to their team mates.
Freddie stood tall and turned in a fantastic performance in goal to help keep the score line down.
Overall it was a tough game but a really good second half. We need to keep working on our marking and watch those cross field passes! On to our first away match next week.
