It truly was a game of 2 halves, with Heron bossing the 1st half and were unlucky to go into the half time break only one up with fine keeping and sterling defense keeping them out. Having said that Collingwood also had some chance from a couple of set plays but filed to test the keeper.
The 2nd half was all change and a reinvigorated Collingwood pressing hard for the equalizer which was a well work goal mid-way through. Now it was Heron’s defense that was blocking all Collingwood’s effort a but a strong defence and poor finishing from Collingwood meant the game ended 1 – 1.
Both teams score their opening penalties but after that Collinwood lose their way and Heron scoring all theirs resulted in a 4 – 2 win
Final result HMS HERON 1 (4) – 1 (2) HMS COLLINGWOOD
This was a game of young guns (HMS Sultan) v experienced heads (HMS Excellent)
Throughout the young guns huffed and puffed but the experienced heads read their intentions and kept them in check.
HMS Sultan had plenty of possession but lack composure in the last 1/3 whilst HMS Excellent took their chances well and ran out deserved winners
Final result HMS EXCELLENT 3 – 0 HMS SULTAN
