U14’s Galaxy FC v Sussex RTC
In what was an extremely hard fought competitive game both sides gave everything they had in order to gain the upper hand in this fixture.
It would be a game of two styles Galaxy trying to play their normal free flowing football & Sussex RTC setting out their stall from the off to not allow this to happen with fantastic work rate & pressure, Galaxy struggled to find space & deal with the pressure being applied & although it was Galaxy creating the better goalscoring opportunities they would fall behind to Sussex RTC with a well taken goal, the game would continue in much of the same way with the Sussex RTC goalkeeper in great form making some outstanding reaction saves, but eventually Galaxy would get the breakthrough they thoroughly deserved through Charlie Martin to make it 1-1, Galaxy changed their system to 4-2-4 & continued to enjoy the majority of possession causing problems for Sussex RTC but they would fall behind again when they were in good control a back pass to the keeper on the edge of the box who tried to play into the middle third where the full back meet the ball & hit a 40yard shot over the the retreating goalkeeper an extremely well taken goal, this raised the urgency in Galaxy & the hard work Sussex RTC had put in started to take it’s toll as their efforts slowed resulting in one way traffic & the game being played in the vistors half, the constant attacks finally paid off when a foul in the box resulted in a penalty which Charlie Martin cooly stepped up & dispatched into the bottom corner, with time left Galaxy rushed back & were in the ascendency, Sussex RTC looked a little deflated & the pattern continued & when the ball came in from the left from a Galaxy attack it was no surprise it was that player again Charlie Martin who would cooly round the keeper & finish with accuracy into the goal on the angle to secure a hard fought but well deserved win over a well organised, committed, physical opponent.
I would like to congratulate all the Sussex RTC players in the part they played in a great game & wish them all the best for the rest of the season.
