The game today saw both Bedworth teams play on their home pitch for an early kick off. Juniors won the toss against George, captain for Warriors today. The first half saw a fair game with both teams playing well, Juniors having a few more shots but Lewis was a cat in goal as usual and made some great saves and challenges.
Twenty minutes in, Lewis came out for the challenge but was dribbled around, lucky Curtis chased the ball down and made a saving goal line clearance. Warriors took the lead after thirty minutes with a great ball from Alfie W playing a different position today in left midfield feeding the ball to Harrison whose shot was deflected by the keeper. George picked up the deflection and found the back of the net. The first half ended 1-0 to Warriors.
Mac replaced Alfie in the second half playing on the left wing and Juniors started the second half fighting hard and scored the equaliser after twelve minutes. Warriors continued to defend well with Syd playing left back. He had a great game supported by Ollie W in midfield and Ollie J in defence. Harrison’s pace was not quite enough today against a fast defender. In the closing minutes, Juniors chipped Lewis to win the game 2-1 after Warriors queried a hand ball. Man of the match was Syd for his hard work and determination at right back.
