Back to winning ways for the Whites today, but in strange circumstances.
The Ref got the game under way and it was the Whites that created the best chances.
Noah was put through but his shot was saved.
Noah again won the ball but his shot was saved.
When Noah put Jack through, his cross was blocked for a corner from which the Whites scored, when Xander headed in for 0-1. Noah again, who was having a fine game, had another shot saved,
When the Whites won a free kick just outside the area, Jack took it, but his shot was blocked by the opposition wall,
The Whites increased their lead, when Leon put through Jack to score for 0-2.
When the opposition won a free kick out on their left, that was crossed to the near post, Leon cleared it with a strong header that fell to Jack, who then put Tom through to break away and score for 0-3.
The Ref then had a long talk, to a fan of the opposition and asked him to leave the field of play.
Play got back under way
The Whites won a free kick that Xander crossed that Leon got to with a powerful header that went just wide.
When Leon put Ben through he could only fire wide.
When Ben was through on goal, the opposition goalkeeper collected the ball and unexplainably barged into Ben and the Ref gave a penalty. The opposition coach then called all his players over to the touch line, he then spoke to them for a couple of minutes and then decided to call an end to the game?
The Ref had no choice to end the game.
Looking at the Tameside League web site they have the Whites winning 3-0.
