Comber Rec

We faced a team in Carryduff that we hadn't beat in all our previous attempts. The team seemed pretty upbeat though and I told the squad that a few players were changing positions. Ben and Alex H into CB with Tom on left and Dylan on the right formed our defence. Joel was holding just in front with Ivan and Lewis on the wings. Kirsty held CM with Sam p supporting Chris up top. As we kicked of the team seemed well balanced and from the off were communicating with each other.
It was a pretty even tussle especially Ivan with their playmaker no17. Carryduff seemed to get a lot of corners at the start but the team dealt with the pressure. I was glad to see the guys didn't panic and kept playing good football out from the back , with Joel constantly finding our wingers. Some poor finishing by us kept it 0-0 late into the first half , but an unselfish through ball from Sam p to Chris saw him slot home. 1-0
Comber thwarted any threat of an equaliser and saw the half out to keep the lead.
At half time the guys were asked to keep composure and to finish any chances.
We came out strong and dominated the play. Carryduff had changed their keeper and he was definitely getting worked. He made at least three saves in the opening 10 mins from Kirsty Joel and Sam but it was Lewis who finally beat him,with a low strike 2-0.
Our defence unfortunately got a lesson in following the ball out and playing to whistle. Ben thought the ball was out and stopped playing, the ref didn't blow , Carryduff came away with the ball and slotted it away 2-1. Comber still didn't panic. A few more chances went begging before Alex H hit an unstoppable drive 3-1.
Carryduff in fairness didn't offer much and when their defender gave away an indirect free kick in box for swearing. Alex H stepped up with a worldy of a goal. Touched to him by Lewis and put over the keepers head. I thought the match was well over. Especially with how the defence was playing and Joel and Adam constantly winning everything in the middle but it wasn't. A play we always get out by, the long ball from defence over everyone to the speedster. Ben in goal caught in two minds whether to come out and the defence caught napping lead to their second which geed them up a bit. Thankfully we held on for the comfortable win.
Points. Everyone held their own , even in different positions.
We played football with no hoofing and run.
A player in Jack Anderson made his debut and held his own.
