Valley View 0 Salisbury 4
I tried to find a saying that related to today's game and it was actually quite easy in the end and so I settled on "playing in patches does not win matches".
The boys played well for 30 minutes or so of each half but faded badly in the last 10 minutes of each half during which time the opposition team scored all 4 of their goals. We alaso need to "use our chances" as when we get open shots at goal these must be taken.
We did compete very well today for 3/4 of this game but it is those last 10 minutes of each half which cost the team dearly. It seems to be a mixture of a number of factors involving some lack of fitness; lack of strength against bigger body opponents and also a lack of concentration and effort, especially when the going gets hard, that is the reason for these lapses.
To quote another saying, "there is always next week" and so it is hoped the team can regroup and find again that confidence and strength and team work that has led to our victories this season.
