Off to a flier
We hosted Templehall this morning at the Riverside, last season the honours were shared in the league so we knew it would be a tough game.
We started well enough but it was clear the lads were a bit flat. Credit where it’s due though as they continued to battle hard and we opened the scoring midway through the 1st half.
Blane hit a left foot shot from the edge of the box that the keeper spilled into the net.
Templehall grabbed an equaliser on the stroke of half time, hesitation at the back allowed them a free header 5 yards out.
Templehall started quickly in the 2nd half but a couple of tweaks saw us take control of the game.
We started creating more chances and finally got our second goal.
Good running from Lewis saw him cut inside and fire in a good shot that the keeper was unable to keep out.
We battled away and Ruairidh grabbed the third latching on to a poor clearance he eased past the defender before firing an unstoppable shot low past the keeper.
Although it wasn’t our best performance the boys dug deep and fought for everything and got the 3 points they deserved.
MOTM. Close again between Ruairidh and Lewis but Lewis McD just edged it.
Well done lads a good start and we can push on from here.
