TBC: 2, Hope Church (CUP GAME): 3

Testwood winning streak comes to an end…

On a rather brighter Saturday morning, the frost cleared and the Testwood home of football hosted a strong Hope side for a 1st round cup match. The game started evenly with both teams looking to take an early lead. Hope created more chances and and took an early lead from a set piece. Testwood soon bounced back and after a through ball and a well saved shot, the ball fell inside the box which was neatly finished. A few minutes before half time, Testwood gave away a freekick which was neatly dispatched from Hope. 2-1 at half time. 

The second half started brightly with neither team sitting back. Testwood pressed and finally got their reward after a neat through ball which was controlled well, a little drop of the shoulder and brushed calmly past the Hope keeper. With 5 minutes to play, the score at 2-2, Hope swung a beautiful corner in, which was met perfectly on the volley to secure a 3-2 win for the away side. 

Once again, a great game, played fairly and enjoyed by all.
