The boys’ First team worked hard for their 4-1 win over New Hall, dominating and creating chances throughout. Despite the score line, the boys were nonetheless somewhat inconsistent in their control so New Hall felt they were always in the game. On the plus side, the deep defence and distribution improved well during the course of the match.
In the 3rd minute Woodbridge set the best possible standard with a perfect team goal building up the pitch, using the width, and well converted by Hugo. For the remainder of the first half things were a bit more scrappy: New Hall were offered uncontested shots on goal, and play tended to drift to the middle of the pitch. However, in the 25th minute Henry finished well with a first time effort, catching the GK off guard and giving Woodbridge a deserved cushion at half time.
Vice-captain, Oliver B pounced on a third rebound from the GK in the first minute after half time, making an excellent decision to flick the ball high rather than going at the keeper. New Hall came back after a bit of sloppy defence from Woodbridge, to make it 1-3; but George sealed the match for his team when he deflected the ball into the goal in front of the right post, perfectly positioned.
Everyone in the team contributed to this good win. Captain, Toby, led from the front to earn a unanimous player of the match performance.
