TBC: 6, All Saints (Div 2): 3

Testwood bounce back to with a big win…

Following a loss to league leaders, RCCG, Testwood hit the road to visit mid table All Saints. Testwood started superbly, calm on the ball and playing from the back. Creating chance after chance, Testwood should’ve been 3-0 up within 10 minutes. After some neat work down the left, Testwood took the lead with a cool finish. Moments later, Testwood doubled their lead with a great pull back and a calm finish just outside the six yard box. All Saints slowly grew into the game and started to create chances but the Testwood back line always looked in control. Ten minutes before half time, Testwood floated in a corner, which was controlled well and smashed home to extend their lead. 3-0 was the half time score. 

The second half started much like the first, with Testwood maintaining possession of the ball. Five minutes into the second half, Testwood broke down the left and after some neat play, the ball was rolled into the net, with the final touch hitting an All Saints player. All Saints quickly responded with a very well taken free-kick, 4-1. Testwood were then caught napping and saw a well timed header hit their net, 4-2. Testwood sharpened up and after a loosely hit goal kick, Testwood gathered the ball, strolled past a defender and neatly dispatched the ball past the keeper, 5-2. All Saints started to fall away again and Testwood hit them on the break, with a pass across the 6 yard box and a confident finish, 6-2. With five minutes left, All Saints pushed forward and were rewarded with a goal, after a nice cross and well executed volley.

The game ended 6-3 to Testwood.
