What should have been a high scoring game for us turned out to be one of those days.
Some excellent play from the Blues for the first 10-15 minutes had Ponteland arguing amongst themselves. We were having the run of play, however on 18 minutes Ponteland sneaked a goal in at the near post against the run of play. 10 minutes later and it was another squeezing under the body of our keeper making it 2-0. By the break Ponteland had made it 3-0. Not for want of trying the Blues had the majority of the play, however quick breaks from Ponteland kept us very much on our toes.
It wasn't for the lack of trying, but it was one of those days where the ball would not go in the goal for us. Many shots parried by the keeper, some worldly saves and many just off target, we should have perhaps scored 4 or 5 goals during the game. To compound this we even hit the post from a penalty.
