Another fantastic afternoon in the sunshine over at John Spence, where we took a mix of our Moorbridge Sports Academy boys and girls for a 9-a-side football game. We had some debut's in the side as well as some of our girls who played the previous afternoon in the CVL.

For large parts of the game Moorbridge Sports Academy dominated possession, moving it quickly from side to side with all players getting involved. After playing out from the back Moorbridge broke forward with some great attacking football and JJ put Moorbridge ahead with a fantastic finish. 

Shortly after the break John Spence came back into the game and unfortunately they received a penalty for a tackle inside the box to the amazement of some of the defenders. They despatched it into the back of the net, quickly after that they went through again and scored a great goal into the bottom corner past Harvey.

Moorbridge Sports Academy continued to try and play fast attacking football, Brandon who played out from the back with a ball down the line to Gary who beat his defender and got a cross in the box towards Tasha. She took a fantastic touch on the edge and laid it off towards Kaylee who dispatched this into the back of the goal with a fantastic left footed strike.

A couple of substitutions took place and Moorbridge pushed for the winner, Tasha who pressured for the full game was unlucky not to come away with 2 or 3 goals. However she managed to win the ball in the corner after challenging the defender and a few passes around the box later the ball managed to find her feet and she sweetly struck it into the bottom right hand corner out of the reach of the goalkeeper.
