Penn 0 Downley 1
Downley Dynamos visited their oldest rivals Penn & Tylers Green for their first League match of the season, and it turned out as close and hard fought as many of their other epic encounters.
The first ten minutes both sides played a cagey game with few opportunities for either side. However, Downley were starting to put a few moves together, and almost scored with their first real chance. New signing Alfie fed Tom, and his deflected shot was tipped onto the bar and over by the keeper. Charlie and Tom then combined for Alfie to put the ball wide.
Jed was the next to try his luck, cutting in from the left but he also put his shot wide. Downley continued to press and Charlie found Tom only for the keeper to pull off a decent save with his legs, and although the ball feel back to Tom, his cross was headed wide by Alfie.
Penn, had their first effort on goal when from the inside right position, the number 8 brought a good save out of Dan from 15 yards. Dan was again called into action making a brave save at the forward’s feet as he looked set to strike.
In another good move, Jude & Andre worked the ball to Ben, whose superb cross field ball found Tom, who fired over. Penn then sent over a dangerous cross which Dan finger tipped around the post, before the resulting corner was flicked just wide.
All square at half-time in a tight affair.
Penn has the first opportunity of the second half, and Dan made another fine brave save after a left wing ball bounced invitingly at the forward’s feet. But Downley continued to create half chances, Andre turned inside only to see his shot blocked before Tom put the rebound wide, and then Fikayo’s free kick was headed just over by Jude. Andre again had a shot blocked after skilfully outwitting his marker before the Penn number 19 went on a fantastic run past five players before running out of steam and putting the ball wide.
With time running out the deadlock was finally broken. Tom’s left wing corner evaded everyone and went straight in. An unfortunate way to concede for Penn but on the balance of play well deserved as Downley had probed for the majority of the game.
The last few minutes were seen out relatively comfortably for a fine win, and a good battling performance from Downley with some good football thrown in too.
