  Park Way 15/12/2017 League Cup  
Comber Rec




Comber kicked of against castle at parkway in the first round of a cup competition they had never got by the first round. Comber raced into an early lead after some good play which saw Chris pounce onto the keepers mistake. He quickly got his second. His first with his left foot for the club.

Comber were running the game and the new formation of 4-3-3 was working well. The three of Lewis C, Chris and Ben were constantly finding the running three of Joel, Messi and maestro (johnny).

Johnny received the ball on the left and charged at pace towards the net. He hit a worldly of a strike that left the keeper with no chance. Comber continued to boss the game but as previous matches squandered alot of chances which would've put this game to bed. Castle scored totally against the run of play which made the game edgy until Joel scored to take the halftime result 4-1. We talked about finishing and teamwork.

Castle kicked of the second half. The back line Lewis mcc, ben c (matty), ollie, Aman (dylan)which we were able to change during the game thwarted any early push by castle. Joel quickly made it 5.

For some reason at this point of the match Comber forgot their play, no communication, no movement or pressure. This let castle get a run at us, which made their confidence grow and they deservedly got their second. I spoke to the subs about what we needed to do and what was expected. The boys delivered.

Joel got another and Kayne (one of smallest on pitch) rose best and got his head on a super ball put in from the right. That goal was more or less the last kick of the game.

Yes this team played well today but again wasted a lot of chances. We need to hit the net
