Another rainy start for the lads today, the first half we struggled to pass the ball around with a few players trying to take on the other team. They settled but found it hard going, the opposition went a well deserved 1 up and had other chances, which were avoided thanks to Travis in goal.
Then Harrison hit a sweet 20 yard shot in to the top corner which was then followed shortly by Jack scoring from the opposition keeper’s mistake. HT GHR FC 2 – Barnoldswick 1.
Second half came and the rain stopped. GHR FC struggled to get into the passing mode and following subs they seem to struggle in defence. Eventually managing to get some balls forward and a great ball from Nathan, to Ellis, who turned and hit a sweet shot into the corner of the net, the Barnoldswick keeper got a hand to it but was unable to stop it !
The opposition never gave in and then managed to make it 3-2.
GHR FC then then gave a penalty away. Travis dived low to stop it. We held out for the last few minutes for a hard fought win.
Full Time 3-2
Man of the Match: Jack
