With a close 1-0 defeat to Elston Hall Primary. Fallings Park had to become even stronger and tougher to get a win against home side Rategate Primary.
The match got underway and both teams starting fiercely and aggressively. In under five minutes, Selwyn slotted away the first of many goals with a cool and calm finish into the bottom corner. Fallings Park then started to play smooth, stunning passing with each other. Rocco made it 0-2 with an astonishing lob over the goalkeeper from the edge of the box. After dominating the first half of the game Selwyn made it 0-3 with a fortunate deflection off the opposing defender which found its way into the corner of the net.
Kick-off got underway for the second half and Fallings Park – who had a slow start to the second period of the match – conceded a goal from Rategate’s striker. That goal seemed to revive Rategate, however that only seemed to motivate Fallings Park even more who in quick succession made it 1-4 with a simple tap into the net by Callum. After that, a fierce hit shot towards the goal flew up in the top corner of the net from Tawanda which made it 1-5. Callum scored his second of the match after an unimaginable run to leave the defenders in bewilderment. Another relentless shot from Tawanda made it 1-7. Finally, Tayo ended the scoring after taking the ball off Selwyn to blast the ball comfortably past the defenceless goalkeeper to make it 1-8. Well done! Superb performance boys!
