POST MATCH REPORT | AL2s - R3 vs SEAFORTH at TERREY HILLS AT 3PM (HOME GAME)


Seaforth have always been tough opposition and Saturday's game was no different. We started with exceptional intensity, some great passing play and created several chances.

8 minutes into the match, the game took a turn with a controversial moment between one of the Seaforth players and the ref where the player was first shown a yellow card, which was quickly replaced by a red card for dissent. We then opened the scoring 10 minutes in. It started with a committed run by Conor down the line where he just kept the ball in play, followed by a beautiful pass which was tapped in by Isaiah. We created several more chances and the second goal came shortly after with a tap in by Conor Wilson. Unfortunately, Seaforth played one too many long balls and finally, one of them paid off, with Isaak (apparently) beaten in the air and a ball headed into the top right of our goal, wrapping up the half at 2-1.

At the start of the second half, we were sluggish and slow to get out of the blocks. Seaforth pressed hard and after some sloppy play, they pressed and earned a corner. They took a quick corner and scored their second goal with a volley that was slammed in to equalise the game at 2-2.

A few changes to the formation and we started to dominate play. 10 minutes after the equaliser, Jason stepped up with a cracking shot that was just about to sail wide of the target when Conor redirected the ball with a magic back-to-the-goal-half-volley flick using the outside of his boot. The final goal was sealed when Bevan took a cracking shot from outside the box, which was parried back and followed in by a cheeky chip by Isaiah to seal a 4-2 win.
