A Tough Weekend
19th Feb 2018
On Saturday Town faced third-place Ware Sports at The Bury and suffered a 7-2 defeat.
Despite the scoreline, the team put in a good performance and were on a pretty even footing with the opposition throughout.
Trailing by just 1 goal 5 minutes before half-time defensive errors saw us go into the break 3-0 down; Sports scored early into the second half and this was followed mid-way through by a 5th goal.
Buntingford fought back with a brace from Danny Lane soon after, but let two more in late-on, the last being the final kick of the game.
Indeed, had the game been 40 minutes each way the score would have been just 4-2!
Despite the result there were many positives to take from the game, not least the spirit the side showed against strong opposition.
The Vets returned to action on Sunday and had a poor first half, conceding 5 to no reply at Standon.
The final score, a 6-0 defeat, although disappointing, is probably a reflection of how little game-time the side has had over the last couple of months.
Both the Vets and First Team have struggled to consistently find the back of the net all season; we really need to create, and take, more chances.
