TBC: 5, Christ Central (Div 2) : 4
Testwood bounce back with a win!
A blustery Saturday morning saw Testwood travel to Portsmouth to play Christ Central. On the back of three straight defeats, Testwood needed a win. The game started well for the visitors, who went 2-0 up comfortably after 15 minutes. The home side stepped up a gear and grabbed 3 goals in quick succession to go in 3-2 up at half time.
The second half saw Christ Central extend their lead to 4-2 with the visitors looking bewildered. After a shaky few minutes, Testwood calmed and began to play football again and clawed 2 goals back going into the last 5 minutes. The game, evenly poised at 4-4 saw Testwood awarded a late corner, which ended up in the back of the net! The game finished 5-4 to the visitors.
A great game of football from both sides, who wanted to play the passing game throughout. Special mention firstly to the Christ Captain for a very appropriate prayer before the game in relation to the current crisis and to the referee who managed the game excellently.
