A few changes to the line-up saw Zain Mohammed start in goal after impressing against Wardle and his selection was instantly justified as he pulled of a number of impressive saves in the opening exchanges. Beech House were under pressure throughout the half but dealt with everything Falinge could throw at them comfortable and visibly grew in confidence as the game wore on. Approach half time the score were locked at 0-0 and with Che Sullivan Manders Rico Bernales and Charlie Egerton working overtime in midfield fortunes were looking promising. Unfortunately luck did not go the way of the boys as a miss hit cross from the Falinge Park winger took a cruel deflection off Egerton for the opening goal, not what Chalie’s play to that point had warranted.
The team went into half time adrift by just a single goal and had every reason to be proud of their performances, captain Josh Scotti optimising the effort levels that were spoken of prior to the start of the game.
However after half time and with a tiring midfield outfit Beech house began to lose their grip on the game that had been very even to that point. Fatigue and knocks resulted in some forced changes which disrupted the shape of the team resulted in Falinge capitalising with a quick fire double.
Three more goals were added to the score line which did not reflect the efforts of the team in the first half.
A disappointing ending but plenty of positives to take from and build upon in round three.
