Hethersett Athletic A 1 Occold 0


Hethersett played host to Occold in their second home game of the season and were looking to improve on their previous home performance. 

The opening 10 minutes saw both teams evenly matched, but Occold soon showed their tactics by constantly pushing out from defence.

Hethersett had to adjust, as they were being caught by the offside trap on many occasions. The Occold goalkeeper made some fine one on one saves and prevented Hethersett from taking the lead. After some fine midfield play between Rob Pugh and Chris Kerr, Hethersett finally managed to beat the offside trap. Ed Gardner latched onto a through ball from Kerr and gave a square pass to Tim Allenden who neatly put the ball away.  

With the wind on their backs in the second half,  Hethersett pushed forward to try and extend their lead. Again they battled against the offside trap and a brave Occold keeper, who pulled off more one on one saves. Hethersett's defence also came under pressure as Occold chased the equaliser.

Captain Danny Holman and Mike Douglas were both strong in central defence. Late into injury time Hethersett were awarded a penalty after Tim Allenden was brought down but the Occold keeper kept them out again. Nevertheless Hethersett held on to record their first home win of the season. 

Hethersett can learn from this good competitive game and must make better use of their chances.
