Osborne Coburg FC v Sandown FC Res, pre-season friendly, Tues 18 Aug 2020 – match report
Sandown Reserves faced Coburg away at Plessey, for a week night game to add to their preseason wins! Both teams were ready to grab the win, but only one side came out with a double figure score.
It was a settled night, weather was on our side and Sandown put out a strong team to face Coburg away. The first half showed the strength within the team and connection between players as the ball was consistently passed between players and on target at goal! Then, once the first goal had hit the net the rest just kept on coming!
Throughout the game, there was great football from the team as they worked well to follow up the ball with great finishers! As the game progressed Sandown began to let their win get to them, as they let 2 mistakes shoot past them into the goal. From these two conceded goals there is still something for the team to take away and work on. Despite this Sandown continued to follow through with the ball including a great volley from Charlie, really demonstrating skills from preseason training.
As the game came to an end, with a 12-2 lead, there were goals from Nath (4), Smarty (2), Gav (1), Walker (1), Liam (2), Ollie (1) and Bleach (1).
Sandown begin to get a name for themselves and are quickly becoming the ones to watch for the season to come, a great win and a great game of Tuesday night football.
