Brief Match Summary:
Clapham pressed forward from the kick off and after a period of possession, were in the lead within five minutes. More pressure on the opposition goal soon led to Clapham doubling their lead and within ten minutes, they were 3-0 up and looking comfortable. Afeewee then began to defend well, counterattacked when they could and began to settle into the game. However, Clapham held off any threats to their goal and the first half ended 3-0. Five minutes into the second half, Afeewee pulled a goal back and the game was more evenly balanced for a while until Clapham re-established their three goal cushion mid way through the second half. The last ten minutes were end to end, with the both keepers called on to make important saves and there was an exciting finish to the game. Special mention to Luca Hyde this week, who scored while playing outfield in the first half, kept well in goal in the second half, making one particularly spectacular save and was deservedly named man of the match.
