Lavant 1 0 Petesfield 3 1

At the end of the match compliments from the opponents who had never lost on their own ground and had to suffer their second defeat since the start of the tournament. The 3s were able to count on four substitutions (a very rare event for an away match) and started the match with a more decisive attitude than their opponents, collecting 8 short corners in the first half and keeping our goalie, Mark, mostly as an observer.
In the second half after the initial 10 minutes, where Lavant remembered to be the league leader and engaged Mark in some nice saves on the 3 short corners conceded, Petersfield regained control of the match and after 4 more short corners, finally managed to beat an excellent opposing goalkeeper with a sharp shot from Matt Sabben Clare. Our juniors did extremely well, holding the midfield distribution with Rowan, Charlie and Leo, giving an hard time to the Lavant's defenders with Ben, Ollie and Henry. Also to praise the defensive work done by Jake and David. Skipper Roberto appears confident for the rest of the season.
