MOM:It was a hard choice between Max and Ryan so in the end a gave it to both of them.
Max because his goalkeeping was spot on and its good to see him coming off his line and out his box and kicking the ball clear a all round good performance and Ryan who scored a hat trick and was so calm when he took his chances and all 3 goals were good finishes.
Review: Bloxham started really slow in the first half and need to learn to get off the mark quicker but in the second half were much better from closing down to passing and crossing the ball into the box.
in the end Bloxham did well and fought hard for the win.

Bloxham were struggling all off a sudden they weren't winning there tackles and closing down and in the end easington scored their fifth goal to end the match 5-2.
MOM:Riley scored 2 goals and was full of energy but needs to look up when passing but overall did well.
Review:Bloxham started well and passed it well and their was some good individual skills by some players.
The things that let them down was closing down and not chasing every ball which means the work rate was poor and unfortunately that cost them the game in the end.
Consistency is something we need to improve on.
