68th OB 'A' (A)

Sat 29th Oct - 2:00pm
Strollers returned to league action this week and didn't start the game the way they would have liked as they conceded on the seventh minute from a poorly defended corner, with their striker heading in at the back post. 
They drew level five minutes later when John Alexander collected the ball on the left, cut in and bent a well placed shot into the top corner from 20 yards.
Three minutes later and the game was completely turned on its head when George Fleck put the Strollers ahead after collecting the ball outside the box and bulldozing his way through the 68th defence to neatly slot the ball past the opposition goalkeeper. 
Strollers were unlucky to concede a second after a harsh decision saw the ref award 68th a free kick on the edge of the box and it was duly converted to level the scores once again.
68th then went in front after a long ball found their striker in space who had two attempts superbly blocked by Michael Clarke before the ball fell at his feet again and managed to find the bottom corner with a scuffed shot which wrong footed Dean Adams in goals.
Half time: 68th OB ‘A’ 3-2 Wakehurst Strollers
Strollers piled on the pressure in the second half with 68th putting every man behind the ball trying to hold onto their lead and they did it well until Charles Allen got onto the end of a Roy Colville through ball and placed his shot under the keeper to level the scores in the 81st minute. 
Big well done to the two U16 players - namely Joshua Logan and Thomas McCauley who made their Strollers debut and didn't look at all out of place.
