League Table

VS NEW FOREST 28TH SEPTEMBER 2019

Written by Dan D

First league game of the season saw us with a shortened team and in need of help from some of the seconds players.

It was decided to play 1/4s rather than two halves.

A fairly even start by both teams with equal attacking and defending. It took about 7 mins into the first quarter where we had a nice break through down
The wing, into the middle and squared across for a slotted away goal under the keeper by myself to take the lead.

Second quarter saw us break through and smashed a shot into the top corner nicely by Dan P. Then drama hit...... so the New Forest attacker took a shot and the ball crunches our returning defender right in the chops. Managing I believe to loose two teeth and possible a jaw break....? With a quick search for teeth on the pitch found nothing. Off to A&E he went down a player. It was decided to only play 3 1/4s then due to the time taken dealing with the accident.

Down a player saw New forest pile on the pressure to us we kept defending well. Unfortunately we conceded.

Trying to battle back we gain a short corner which was nicely converted by Dan P again 3-1. Being a playing down the pressure was piling up with more and more attacking play by new forest. We sadly concerned two goals bringing the score level 3-3.

We held on to achieve a draw at the final whistle a good all round performance.

VS HAVANT 4S 16TH FEBRUARY 2019

Dolphins match report against Havant 4s lost 3-1

The start with on a misty sunday traveling to lavant game starting at 1215 turns out there was confusion between the diffrent drivers on where the pitch actually was. However as we are in good time it didn't matter that the first pitch we turned up at was the wrong one oops. That was followed up by getting to the right pitch with no lavant players in sight with Jo on the phone to their captain to make sure that we were in the right place turns out we were. The third strike was when the opposition turned up they couldn't quite get the gates open to the pitch. Eventually pitch was open and everyone was there on time so turns out all was good.
The first half of the game mainly saw most of the action in poole half a few dot shots and attempts later lavant eventually scored one 1-0. Poole then started to wake a little and send some wonderous passing up the pitch we had our chances but came to no avail. On the break of play lavant then scored a second time 2-0.
The second half then saw poole on the attack a lot more reacting to the play and pressing the ball a lot more however more traing and practise on pressing needs to happen. With some brilliant play from poole saw them get a short corner, shot came in and scored my self gave the goal however lavant complained that the ball didnt leave the D, after talking with the other umpire 2as decided that the ball did leave the D goal stood 2-1. Lavant not one to let this lie came back strong and then putting one past the keeper 3-1. A few other things to note Duncan swan diving in the D and almost swearing lucky boy to not get sent off. Overall he dolphins have come on leaps and bounds from the stsrt of the season and continue to learn from the little mistakes and develop as a team.
Man of match gabe
Dotd ash (umpire) made a couple of mistakes and not sending Duncan off
Looking forward to the next game
