It really was Friday 13th

It could only happen on Friday the 13th!  Our bus was involved in an accident so we had to travel by car to Haverfordwest. We started ok with an early attack which the Haverfordwest defence cleared. Then for a period of time they held the ball and knocked it around but they didn’t make any inroads on our goal. They took the lead on 17 minutes when an attack down the right saw the ball crossed in and headed against the crossbar, their player reacted quickest and scored with a close range shot. On 22 minutes Noah Daley had a shot blocked and Haverfordwest broke quickly but the shot went straight to Steve Cann. Alex Gammond headed a corner wide on the half hour, to this point it was our best chance. Haverfordwest went two up on 35 minutes, they played the ball down their left and Steve Cann raced out of the area but a Haverfordwest player got to it first and crossed the ball into the goalmouth where it was put into the net. Jack Hurley was unlucky with a shot from the edge of the area which went inches wide. But we reduced the arrears on 39 minutes from a corner. It was met perfectly by Alex Gammond and his header gave the defence no chance of clearing. On the stroke of half time we had a chance to draw level from a free kick 25 yards out in a central position but Alex Gammond’s free kick went over the crossbar.

From the restart we attacked and Jack Hurley shot at the keeper. Steve Cann again came out of the area and failed to clear the ball, this time however the shot went wide. Kaid Mohamed tried his luck with a long range effort which forced a good save by Steve Hall in goal. We went 3-1 down on 55 minutes, Haverfordwest attacked down our left where there was a huge space they took the ball into the area but the shot was blocked, however it fell kindly to one of the midfield players who was following up and he sent an unstoppable shot into the net. Again Haverfordwest attacked down their right where there was oceans of space but this time we managed to clear the danger. Jack Hurley then won the ball in midfield and found Kaid Mohamed he made ground and passed to Brad Flay but his shot went wide. Haverfordwest’s fourth goal came following a Lido free kick. We pushed forward looking to get back into then game but the kick was cleared and a long ball forward found us wanting at the back and they scored to settle the result. Kaid Mohamed’s luck was out as a header beat Steve Hall in goal but he instinctively stuck out a hand to make the save. The fifth was scored in similar fashion a couple of minutes from time. A result to reflect on, Haverfordwest on the night played very well but we need to respond to this and get ourselves up the table.
