Match Report
It was a case of 'if only' today as the boys were held to a draw against PLCC on a tacky pitch at St. John's. The boys started in positive fashion and tried to play passing football. Chances were few and far between, Tom headed wide before slipping a good ball to Brad who kept his cool and slotted home confidently. Thunder were a little sluggish in midfield and were caught napping on one occasion and paid the ultimate price as the PLCC forward turned past the last defender before finishing clinically past Lordy. The half ended with the two sides evenly matched.

In the second half the boys really took the game to PLCC and really dominated play. However chances came and went as the elusive second goal failed to arrive. Tom inexplicably failed to convert from inches, Marcus had a great header cleared of the line, the ball wouldn't drop kindly in a goalmouth scramble, Mossy was denied with a shot that might have been better taken across the keeper, Danny's lofted cross fell agonisingly wide of the post and with the final kick of the game Josh drove the ball over the bar after working himself into a great position. Final score 1-1.

Despite difficult conditions the boys tried to play football in the right manner. They created enough chances to win the game comfortably and restricted PLCC to very few efforts on Lordy's goal. Well played boys.
