Upper Beeding vs. Ashington Cougars Black

Upper Beeding vs. Ashington Cougars Black

Cougars first league game of the season saw them away to Upper Beeding.
The eagerness to get started was evident and they pressured the Beeding goal from the kick-off, the pace and strength of Jamie Gallagher, William Farnes and Thomas Fitzpatrick meant they dominated the early exchanges and it was Jamie Gallagher who opened the scoring when side-footing a difficult chance into the Beeding goal. Shortly after, it was once again Jamie Gallagher who doubled the lead when heading well from a Thomas Fitzpatrick cross. Despite coming close on several further occasions the score remained 2 -0 at the interval.
A welcome break for Beeding gave them a new lease of life and the second half saw the teams evenly matched but the Cougars defence of Oliver Rencontre, Jack Evans, Alex MacPherson and Samuel Davies looked as strong as ever, thwarting any Beeding attach before it looked dangerous.
The 2nd half deadlock was broken when Jamie Gallagher who seemed to be involved in everything pierced the Beeding defence with a perfectly weighted pass which found Ned Sigston, whose first touch left the defender wrong footed and he drove the ball powerfully past the Beeding keeper to extend the lead to 3 – 0.
William Farnes and Harry Hepburn both came close and were unlucky not to score before a loose ball in the Beeding area was met by Thomas Fitzpatrick who rattled the inside of the cross bar with a strike worthy of Jimmy Case and the ball bounced into the net making the score 4 – 0. A few minutes later Thomas Fitzpatrick scored his 2nd and his teams 5th goal with another powerfully struck shot, this time from outside the area, giving the Beeding keeper who had made several excellent saves no chance.
The game ended 5 - 0 with all Cougars players contributing to an excellent team performance.
Points of note:
League debut appearances for Harry Hepburn and Thomas Cordingley.
