Goals: R Walker x2

B Gate

R Shaw

The match commenced on an enthusiastic note, with the team demonstrating remarkable pressure right from the off. A beautifully orchestrated first goal materialised, stemming from expert play along the sideline and culminating in a pivotal assist courtesy of Johnny Towers to the veteran Rob Walker (sorry Rob, webmasters edit). Not to be outdone, Benji added to the scoreboard with a second goal that found the back of the net, albeit following a series of unexpected and rather awkward bounces.

However, Hartlepool clawed their way back into the contest, managing to score from a well-executed short corner just before the halftime whistle.

The second half showcased a marked improvement in collective gameplay and an effective strategy in reclaiming lost possession. Rapha's stunning reverse-stick goal was an absolute highlight, demonstrating technical brilliance. This was later complemented by Rob's decisive goal, which effectively put the match to bed, ensuring all points would remain with our side.

On the whole, it was an exceptional display of skill and teamwork, punctuated by numerous potent attacks that left the opposition scrambling. The performance bodes well for upcoming fixtures, providing a firm foundation upon which to build.
