Match Report:

This game got off to a fairly woeful start with a lot of very high balls pumped up and down the field. Dunbar did little to control the ball but sent the ball long and put us under pressure causing mistakes to be made.

Some sloppy defensive work in the box saw a ball crossed from the left slice through 3 defenders who failed to clear out the ball. The left back was on the wrong side of his attacker who was able to punch the ball into the net unchallenged. We were caught out ball watching and the score at half time is 1-0 to Dunbar.

After half time, Dunbar come out firing, but it is a freekick taken by Charllie Hammond in the 56th minute that is headed down by James to Ben Kennedy who puts it away through a pack of defenders to equalise 1-1.

Dunbar come back quickly with a beautiful corner right into the box. Our tall defenders, Jake and James are upfront and unable to cover the third tall striker coming in from the left and he heads it in to the farpost. Mark had no chance of saving that one.  2-1 to Dunbar.
 
To our credit we don’t give up and in the 67th minute a cross from Emilio Guitteres connects with Dan Rigby’s big toe and it slowly dribbles just over the goal line! 2-2
It would have been nice if it ended there, but a careless mistake in front of goals sees Dunbar punish us with a third and final goal.
Dunbar punished our defensive errors. Dunbar win 3-2.
