Sports Journalist

Eversley vs Raglan Ravens.

Elias started off with a pass to L’kai who misses his shot. Unluckily Eversley managed to score moments later goal after an quick counter attack. The Ravens tried to get back into the game with Nathan and Elias both coming close, but unfortunately the Eversley keeper made great saves.  Harry narrowly avoided giving away a penalty when he handled the ball on the edge of the area, fortunately the resulting free kick went just wide.  Following on, Harry intercepted the ball without using his hand but gave away possession almost immediately,  and Eversley finished brilliantly to make the score 2-0.  The Ravens were in trouble.  With the first half coming the a close Raglan powered forward searching for a way back into the game.   Nicholas found Elias on the left wing who played the ball through to L’kai who smashed it into the top corner from outside he box, everyone went went wild 2-1!

2nd half

The Ravens made the worst possible start to the second half as Eversley charged through their defence almost immediately to restore their 2 goal lead, 3-1!    The goal seemed to wake up the Ravens though as started tackling harder and passing more accurately.  5 minutes later Elias found the ball in his own half and dribble down the wing brilliantly.  Under pressure he managed to get a low but powerful shot into bottom right corner, 3-2.  Soon after the kick off though, Eversley's striker got a shot off at goall which Finlay saved well but the rebound went straight to Eversley who scored another goal, 4-2 EVERSLEY.  Eversley start to dominate the game, forcing Finlay to make some great saves, however following one save the ball broke to Nathan who dribbled around the keeper to score a very weird goal that bounced off 2 defenders before going into the goal.  They all count though and Raglan were back in the game again.   2 minutes later Raglan were awarded a penalty for handball which Nicholas smashed into the top corner (after slipping over).   Everyone went crazy as the Ravens made it 4-4!  Unbelievably Nathan then broke through again and one on one with keeper put the ball into the bottom corner to put the Ravens 5-4 up!    What a truly amazing comeback!  Eversley were not ready to give up yet and managed to to score with a powerful effort with only seconds remaining.  5-5!  What an incredible game!
