The match kicked off four minutes early just as the rain started to come down. Both teams initially struggling to control the ball on a heavy uneven pitch. Colron’s defence holding strong not giving Hayes Jaguars attackers any chance. As the game progresses Colron start to take control and start creating some chances and twenty-two minutes into the game Owen finds the Hayes Jaguars net after a goalmouth scramble. The Boys go into half time with a 1-0 lead.
The second half kicks off with Colron having the advantage of playing down wind, and the boys take full advantage and create several chances on the Hayes Jaguars goal. All the play is in the Hayes Jaguars half, eventually twenty minutes of relentless Colron pressure Harry finally breaches the opposition’s stubborn defence and scores the second goal of the match. The whistle blows for full time and Colron win 2-0 and their sixth win of the season. Well done boys, a great win in very demanding conditions.
