Our first away game of the season saw us travel to Trinity on a cold, rainy Tuesday afternoon. We started well, having lots of possession and a couple of early shots, one of which hit the post from Deneal. After that, some good interplay by Rocco and Logan released Harley down the left hand side, who ran onto the through ball and hit a powerful shot past the goalkeeper. 1-0 to FPPS at half time.
The second half started and we had little of the ball in the first 5 minutes. This allowed Trinity to equalise from a corner 1-1.
Trinity continued to have more possession than us and we had to defend well until Lemuel won the ball back. We then played some lovely passes between our team to get the ball up the pitch. The ball was passed to Logan, who then took a snapshot from the edge of the box under pressure. This fortunately went through the ‘keeper’s legs to make it 2-1 to FPPS.
We now gained the upper hand again and from a throw in on the right, the ball was played to Deneal, who drove through Trinity’s defence and, unluckily, hit the post for the 2ndtime in the game. Happily for us, this time the ball rebounded straight to Roshane who tapped it in to make it 3-1.
Our fourth goal came from another throw in which Roshane battled to keep possession and crossed it in for Callum to flick it into the back of the net for 4-1.
For our first away game, the result was an important one. The pitch was overgrown and the weather was damp, which made for tricky conditions. We battled hard and came away with the win for another 3 points.
Logan was man of the match for his positioning, passing and keeping the ball, also scoring a goal and assisting one.
