❤️? Match report for Clifton Robinsons 6 v Somerset Gryphons 2 ?❤️
Final score: 0-6:
Somerset Gryphons 2nd XI travelled to Redmaids School for their first league game of the new season in Brunel 3. Being a newly formed team and new to the league, we didn't know what to expect from the opposition but building on our summer league games and friendlies together we went out strong, dominating most of the possession in the first half by some strong passing and movement off the ball. Our first 4 goals came in quick succession, off set piece play on short corners. Brewer receiving the ball at the top of the D, either going for the strike or dropping to the left or right, to create 4 easy tap ins for Summerell (Sizzle) on the left post. By half time we were buzzing at the score line but it was important to focus that we still had another 35 minutes to play and the game wasn't won yet. Clifton Robinsons 6 came out hard in the second half and with some skilful players up front, they had a few chances on goal which either went wide or were saved by some awesome goalkeeping by Gall. But we held strong and came back, with an interception by Bull, some great pace down the wing by Summerell (Drew) and a straight shot into the D set up Sherman nicely for her goal. Some further great play by Mckinan (Yara) assisted by a lovely passage of play from Summerell (Drew), Lloyd, Sherman ended in our 6th goal of the game by Mckinan (Yara), a fantastic edge of D strike finding the back left corner. An exciting start to the season. Man of the match went to Yara with several votes (mostly her own) to Sizzle as well. Onwards to next week against Winscombe 5s.
