Benchill v AFC Urmston Meadowside Eagles

With a loss last week and with instructions to the lads for a much better performance this week, a new player signed up, (welcome on board Aaron!) there was a positive buzz before the game started. Could the lads turn up for this fixture and play their socks off and come away with some points? We will see, we knew it was not going to be an easy game!

Subs: Olly, Jordan, Dom, Joe B, Andy

First Half:
Good end to end football from the kick off. Benchill (BH) getting the upper hand with Eagles slowly finding their rythm. Eagles gaining momentum with two good attacks, BH corner, Eagles break and attack, this breaks down but Eagles win the ball again and attack again. Aaron shoots, BH keeper saves and it's an Eagles corner, this ends up as a goal kick. Eagles attack again, Aaron shoots, keeper saves for a corner, corner taken, Aaron is in the box and heads the ball home to put Eagles in front! 0-1. BH attack, they shoot but it's wide. Eagles attack, Aaron shoots or is it a cross, keeper saves. BH free kick. Meds attack, corner. Meds free kick, Lincoln takes, BH keeper saves. Eagles attack, Aaron shoots, it's just wide, ooh! BH Goal kick. Eagles attack again, and again, Chris shoots and hits the post! Eagles free kick. Eagles attack, Aaron crosses the ball in, Chris heads the ball over the bar! Another Eagles attack, this time, Eddie sends in a lovely cross with his weaker foot, and Chris is in the box to head it home! 0-2. Another Eagles attack, another cross, gathered by the BH keeper. Eagles attack, Ryan shoots but it's wide! BH attack, 2 corners that break down. Eagles free kick, BH keeper saves. Meds fre kick, BH break, they shoot it's too high! BH free kick. BH attack, they shoot and Rob saves. Half time whistle blown.

Not a bad first half at all, good performances by everyone, good to be 2 goals up but we could have had (and deserved) two more! Half time talk given, oranges eaten, drinks consumed and on we go again.

Second Half:
As the minutes passed by, it was obvious that BH were not going lie down, roll over and play dead! BH mounted attack after attack and we did well to weather the storm! But it was not long before BH scored from just outside the box, we gave a man too much room and he took advantage! 1-2. Slowly but not often enough, Eagles were getting back in the game. Two free kicks to Eagles. BH attack, they shoot, it's wide. (Eddie subbed for Joe B, Chris subbed for Dominic, Eagles went 5 in midfield, with Aaron on his own up front) Eagles corner, BH corner. Eagles free kick. BH free kick, Rob saved. BH attack and they shoot, it's wide. BH free kick x 2, Eagles goal kick x 2. Two BH corners and a BH free kick, Rob saves. BH attack, crossed ball in, Rob gathers. Eagles free kick. Eagles attack, Chris shoots, HAND BALL and the ball is in the net! Ref gives a penalty and only a yellow card for the BH player! Lincoln takes the pen but BH keeper saves! (Insert expletives here!!) BH attack, BH corner, sloppy defending sees us concede again! 2-2. Eagles attack, corner, BH goal kick! BH attack, they shoot, Rob saves. Eagles free kick that breaks down. BH attack, Eagles goal kick. BH attack again, they shoot, it's too high! Eagles attack, awarded a free kick, Aaron steps up, it's an awkward position for a free kick (30-40 yards from goal, left hand side of the pitch near the touch line) Aaron shoots, and what a shot! dipped just nicely over the keeper and in the net! WOW! GOAL! 2-3. Eagles free kick just before the full time whistle, a win to Eagles.

Your performance was there today lads in the first half, well done to everyone. You deserved 3 points today. The second half was a bit 'scrappy' and we did well to weather the Benchill storm, this mixed in with some Eagles 'luck' which is rare for us, the luck usually favours the opposition! Some subs/players did not play today, Paul did apologise. We need to work on some things, which we hope to cover in training this week. Next week we play Urmston Town Panthers so we need to focus on another excellent performance by everyone, those players that did not play this week have been promised to start next week.

Result: 2-3   cool

Goal Scorers: Chris Bristow 1, Aaron 2
