First Game of The Season
It's Good to be Back
First game of the season and we are away at Corbridge.
Game started late due to the Ref being delayed at another match.
It was all go from the off, Tynemouth making most of the running and putting some exciting passes together to get forward, working really well as a team. Eight minutes in and the ref gives a handball against Corbridge in their box, penalty to Tynemouth. Thought we were a bit fortunate. Up steps Harvey and fires the ball low in to the left corner of the net. 0-1 to Tynemouth.
19 minutes in and the lead is cancelled out by Corbridge with a ball over the top, 1-1. It's not long until Tynemouth are back in front with a lovely ball in to the box from Harvey and Reece is on it like a flash and scores his first of the season, 1-2. Another ball through from Corbridge and they equalise on the stroke of half time, 2-2 going in to the break.
Second half and it's turning in to a great game of football, Tynemputh moving the ball about with some lovely football. Johnny plays one though and Reece latches on for the shot and scores his second of the game, 2-3. Corbridge are starting to get more of the ball and equalise within six minutes. Now more of an even contest with both teams attacking and defending really well. In to the final minute of the game and Tynemouth have a corner. The ball is played in by Harvey and a good save from the keeper, who spills the ball, a bit of a goal mouth scramble and Reece gets his foot on the ball and squeezes it in to the net, but did he, the ref is unsure and turns to the Corbridge linesman. He gives the goal, telling the ref it definateley crossed the line. The ref has found an extra minute, Corbridge win a dubious free kick on the half way line and ping the ball forward, defended well by Tynemouth. Final whistle.
First game of the season results in a 3-4 win for Tynemouth.
