Result: Whites 9 – 3 Cardijn
Hey Lads, well done on securing top spot over our closest rivals! It was a harder day than the scoreline shows.
We started well, but they used quick movement and we allowed them the space, maybe too much respect was shown! Better finishing from Ryo early on, May have changed the first half, however, they were the better side and deserved to lead!
A half-time talk was definitely needed and duly given. The lads understood the instructions to get up tight, pressure each player and push them back. We moved a few players around and immediately put them on the back foot.
Needless to say, we ran out comfortable on the scoresheet, but they did push us towards the end and we did get sloppy!
Thanks to Sam, Marc & Josh for helping, Josh got a hat-trick. Ryo came away with two as did Leo & after coming on in the final minutes our Sam headed a goal from a cracking cross by the other Sam…..!
Happy we are top, the real work starts now….we must consolidate this week against Pembroke, without that first half performance, please!
