27/11/2018 Pool Hayes 1-1 Bentley West.
Tonight the squad battled through the horrendous weather against a tough Bentley West team.
In the first half Pool Hayes showed some great attacking footballwith the ball rarely entering our half, and when it did the defence showed pure class to play out comfortably and start a fresh attack straight away.
Luke hit the post early on with a great effort from a tight angle, on another day that may well have gone in. Shortly after, Coby’s low cross was too difficult for Bentley to deal with and Robert comfortably slotted away to make it 1-0.
A few more chances looked like Pool Hayes were going to runaway with it but half time came, 1-0.
In the second half Bentley came out with a lot of desire and effort, but Pool Hayes coped well, hitting the post and forcing someexcellent saves from the opposition keeper. With 5 minutes to go Bentley really piled on the pressure eventually grabbing an equaliser. Pool Hayes created chance after chance but just couldn’t find the net.
Full time 1-1.
Player of the match: Regan for a superb defensive display andshowing her value with some great passing from the back.
I would like to add how well the children represented their school, they were a real credit to us today!
