Winchester City 3-3 Thame United
Well that was very very frustrating!!! Game was dead and buried and that we should have been further ahead in, a stonewall pen turned away again as well! Then a crazy 10/15 minutes and we end up hanging on for a replay, momentum is a major thing in football and we lost it, partly the long injury stop didn’t help matters either but only ourselves to blame!
We went with basically the team that beat sholing, other than an enforced change with Kieran injured and replaced by Luke King! First half we were outstanding really and played them off the pitch apart from a very open first 10/15 mins, got 2 ahead with great play by Balmer for the first and again with an assist for the 2nd for Baz to finish! 2-0 at break!
2nd half more of the same and IK got a 3rd and it looked game over! A long break for an ambulance for a bad elbow injury halted things, however an unfortunate OG by Luke King gave them a lifeline and they got a 2nd and then a 3rd to earn a replay!
We have to learn from it and be ready to bounce back in a massive game next weekend against Barnstaple before we think about the replay!
Frustrating but we have to learn from it!
Up the citizens!
