Freeland Run Riot
After the Christmas and new year break Freeland welcomed a youthful Garsington side to the Simon Hole Ground.
Freeland s management were weary before the start of the game that the reds could be lacklustre after too much turkey over the festive period.
They didn’t have to worry the home side started very well and were creating lots of chances from the off.
Garsington to their credit were defending very well and their keeper was being called into action on regular occasions making some very fine stops in the first quarter of hour of the game.
One Save from Tom McCudden
from close range was fantastic.
Also, they do have willing runners upfront and you can see why on occasions they have caused teams problems and have scored lots of goals.
Freeland were patient and a goal would eventually come on 26 mins. A great through ball from the impressive Dean Mays
finding man of the moment Danny Taylor
to sweep home left footed from 15 yards.
This settled the reds down and they were starting to pose a real threat every time they went forward.
The second goal was to come on 42 mins a good ball in from Tom McCudden
finding Liam Harris
to score a header. (This is very rare for the Freeland midfielder but as he had missed two guilt edge chances with either foot he thought he should try a header)
Freeland’s third goal came very quickly after their second goal, a poor defensive clearance landing at the feet of Danny Taylor
to drill home bottom corner from 18 yards.
So, the home side come into the break three nil up.
The second half Freeland managed to play with a bit more Freedom and were serving up some great entertainment with an attractive style of attacking football.
Mr Taylors partner in crime was soon to be in on the act. Tom McCudden
finishing very well on 56 mins. It was that man again on 70 mins who ran through one on one and finished left footed from a tight angle.
Freeland now 5 goals up going into the final 10 mins. Still time for goals from Tom Weeden and Adam Bowerman
to finish the scoring for the home side. The sixth from Tom left footed finding the bottom corner and the seventh from Adam after a smart turn firing to find the roof of the net.
A very good performance for the first game back in three weeks. We move on now for our 4th round senior cup tie against Hook Norton at home.
Can we cause another upset?? We must wait and see.
I love Saturdays see you at the weekend.
