Football - Harris Chafford Hundred 2 HBAED 1
The Year 11s travelled to Harris Chafford Hundred on Monday night for a Federation Cup football fixture. Unfortunately, for the boys, they lost 2-1 but they can take pride form a performance which was very good.
After going a goal down in first few minutes from a long ball over the top they dominated the game. Controlling possession by passing out from the back and through the midfield with combinations from Reece, Josh and Marcus which Chafford struggled to deal with.
Excellent wing play from Ahamed and Kiran stretched the game and but for the help of the crossbar we would have equalised with an exquisite lob from 30 yards by Amjad. Chafford were hanging on for half time but with the last attack of the half they scored again, the striker cooly nutmegging one defender before beating Jesse at the near post.
Again in the second half the East Dulwich boys controlled the tempo and were camped in the Chafford half for most of the game. Reece pulled a goal back on the 50 minute mark, evading two tackles in the midfield with a smart drag back and powering in a finish from distance. What was lacking from the performance were clear cut chances and when one or two did come they were not put away.
Man of the Match
Reece was unsurprisingly a cut above the rest and turned a lot f heads every time he received the ball. A class performance.
Their next game is against Lilian Bayliss In the South London Cup.
Lamar and Michael marshalled the back three and communicated well with midfield allowing the more creative players to stay forward.
