St John's School, Leatherhead 3rd XI vs St Paul's School
On: Saturday, 04 Feb 2017
Venue: at Home
The Mighty Thirds came up against a strong St Paul's 3rd XI who had a speedy left winger. Having held there own in the first half through some solid defending, St John's still look uncofmortable in front of goal. Two chances for the St Paul's winger were neatly taken, but St John's bounced back and it was 2-2 at half time.
A tactical change in formation to 4-3-3 worked well for the Eagles and we were soon 3-2 up. But as we got tired, our structure fell apart and some sloppy defensive errors allowed St Paul's back in to the game. In the final ten St John's did not have the legs and unfortunately St Paul's did. The final score 5-3. A shame to go into half term still searching that win.
