J Walpole Cup 1st Rnd: FIFC 1-3 NE Lions

Fish Island have been eliminated from the Jack Walpole cup.

The first half was an even contest. Neither team were able to gain control of the match causing the possession to switch over frequently. We scored the first goal a few minutes before half time. A corner whipped in from Harry ricocheted in the box only for Nile to fire home from 7 yards. 1-0!

Not our best footballing performance however the team were happy with the off the ball work which restricted the Lions from creating any chances of note.

We started the second half on the front foot. Jordan came very close to doubling our lead but hit his volley over. The Lions equaliser came when they dispossessed us at the edge of our own box which culminated in a good shot to beat Alex. 1-1. The second away goal came from the penalty spot. George handled the ball in the box and the referee blew correctly. 1-2. The third goal sealed the match fairly late in the game. It was a well worked goal which demonstrated how our opponents had grown into the match. 1-3
