Blues Crash Out Of The Cup To Premier League Side
If we had learned from early errors, this would have been closer!
Blues for the 3rd season running drew a Premier LEague team in the Cup, this year it was Heaton Hawks Falcons.
Without dwelling on this too much, we gifted Falcons 5 first half goals, 4 of them identical from a long through ball that we didnt deal with.
Blues got back into the game via a good strike in off the post from front man Archie Beales.
They then added a second with a strike from the right from Ben Harris which flew in off the post.
2-5 down at half time, the game wasnt beyond Blues, who's played some nice football when going forward.
Unfotunately, we gave them a quick 2nd haf goal to go 2-6 down.
Aaron Jerry Murray looked to lead the fight back as he smashed home a shot from just inside the box to make it 3-6.
Then again, we allowed Falcons a cheap goal, 3-7.
Then on 50 minutes, Ben Harris cracked a 25 yard effort into the far corner to make it 4-7.
Then once again, we allowed Falons to score and take teh game beyond us as the clock ticked down.
If the lads can learn faster from errors, and identify how teams play and can combat them, we will have a good season, as wehen we played during this game, we really took the game to them!
