Rugby Town Colts 2 v 3 Coventrians (Sponsored by Sytner Coventry)
A slow start saw the Colts concede two goals inside 5 minutes to leave with an uphill task. Once the Colts settled they matched Coventrians, with Somi, Thomas and Archie all seeing shots saved or blocked. The defence had to be alert against some fast forwards and long balls, Harry and Gabriel won many a duel in the centre of defence whilst, Alfie, Oscar and Fin did the same as full-backs.
Archie got the Colts back into the game, receiving Alfie’s fine pass and sprinting clear for 2-1 at half time. Another early goal was conceded for 3-1, before Devan’s long throw sent Somi clear and he finished for 3-2. Matt had to be on top form in goal and made several good saves, whilst Jack and Nathan battled tirelessly in midfield. Devan and Danny were excellent on the wings as Colts pushed forward for an equaliser that just wouldn’t come.
