League

30-05-2017

An Anti Climax of a debut for the Division 2 League & Cup winners as their pre season confidence was brought down to earth with a humbling defeat. Having struggled to impose themselves early doors, a lazy challenge just outside the area after 10 minutes brought with it the games 1st set piece, with Toornstra firing in a deceptive effort that caught Howard off guard and into the corner. 

 

With Medellin finding themselves overrun in Midfield, a quick counter after 30 minutes brought with it the 2nd goal as Edwards was found in acres of space, taking his time before cooly finishing beyond the Keeper.

A somewhat undeserved opportunity for Medellin to claw their way back into the match was thwarted as Paloschi broke through but could only see his effort saved. In the 83rd it was lights out as Kenedy mugged off the Colombian defence to fire in the 3rd before Paloschi ruined any prospect of a clean sheet for the home side with a consolation at the death.
