BU14 Stoats in Tough Defeat at EG
BU14 Stoats 0 – 11 East Grinstead BU14
Even though we suffered a heavy defeat, Surbiton showed some good movement travelling forward with Toby, Jude and Sam G leading the charge.
Sammie, Nathan and both Tom Cs won the ball often with some good tackles/challenges.
In the second half we created good chances with Teddy, Ben, James and Dan showing great team chemistry, allowing us to find opportunity within the D. We couldn't find a way past their keeper and EG were quick to close us down.
Will made some cracking saves against the EG attackers who were 3 times his size.
An exciting and challenging game which, in spite of the score, we all thoroughly enjoyed and took home lots of learning points. We were all encouraged by how our game improved over the 70 mins as we started to more effectively respond to EG's slick and aggressive style of play.
