TBC: 4, All Saints (Div 2): 5
Testwood lose out in 9 goal thriller!
A very wet and windy Saturday morning saw Testwood play away against All Saints. The game started with All Saints on the front foot and after some neat wing play, they took an early lead. Testwood looked to bounce back quickly but found themselves two down after a neat finish from the All Saints striker. The game settled after 15 minutes and Testwood started to find their form. A low drive into the box from a corner, a shot/cross and neat finish brought the game back to 2-1. Testwood then pushed for an equalizer and a wind assisted corner saw them level with the home side. Sadly, moments later, Testwood tried to play from the back but were again caught and All Saints went in 3-2 up at half time.
Testwood pressed from the get go in the second half and found themselves level after some tenacious running down the right side and a neat finish. Testwood just couldn’t stop conceding and within minutes found themselves 4-3 down. With 15 minutes left, Testwood hooked a ball forwards which was very cooly finished from just outside the box. The game then finally went in All Saints favour after some very strong hold up play and a cool finish.
The game ended 5-4 to the hosts but a thoroughly enjoyable match for both sides.
