Theo was awarded Player of the Tournament.
The wet and windy afternoon, brought on by the edges of Storm Doris, did not bring much luck to the two Broughton Manor teams on this occasion, as we travelled to Bedford Modern School.
The A team started slowly and conceded an early goal; the first time this season they have trailed at any point. Theo gave a valiant effort at the back and surged forward with some strong, well timed runs but Broughton were never able to gain a foothold in the first half, allowing several chances to go by.
BMS added two more goals to lead the match 3-0 at half time. After the break, Broughton came back out with renewed purpose and energy, pulling one back. Rohan slotted home the only Broughton goal from the left side of the box, but a quick fourth from BMS effectively ended the match. The final score was 6-1.
The B team had an improved performance with stand out efforts from Ali-Hasan in goal and James up front. James scored the only Broughton goal of the match, a fantastic finish which nearly tore the net off the goal. In the final few moments of the match Ali-Hasan made several excellent saves and kept the match close until the very end. The final score was BMS 4, Broughton Manor 1.
The weather for the match was cold and drizzly.
The match tea was chips and sausages.
The man of the match for the A team was Rohan Mall; he kept his width on the wing effectively and scored the only Broughton goal of the game.
The man of the match for the B team was Ali-Hasan Syed; he made some fantastic saves and really helped the B team play their best match so far this season. Great work to Rohan and Ali-Hasan!
