Trafalgar Reserves went down to Churchill in a lack luster performance. The boys put in a dismal first half performance and Churchill went into the break with a 1-0 lead. In the second half Trafalgar found an equaliser through Aidan Wyatt only for Churchill to regain the lead and secure a deserved win. Trafalgar were never in the contest and will need to improve if they want to move up the league ladder.
Trafalgar Seniors were victorious in an epic battle with Churchill Utd. Trafalgar took an early lead with a great finish by Anthony Sossa. They could have gone further ahead but missed a number of good opportunities. Churchill came back strongly and equalised through a defensive mistake and were firmly back in the game. The second half provided an open entertaining game with goals and drama in the mix.
Churchill scored two goals in quick succession and with 10 minutes to go looked to have secured the points. The Trafalgar lads however had other ideas and a magic header from Chris Gratton started a stunning comeback or the great escape depending on who you were supporting. The equaliser came immediately after when “cool hand Josh Paredes scored from the penalty spot and set up a frantic last five minutes.
Trafalgar pushed for the winner and on cue Cohen Bayles knocked a great through ball to speedy Monty Coots who delivered a pinpoint ball to Nate Paredes who with majestic skill and assured composure rifled in a shot which bulged the net and set Trafalgar fans into raptures. A great victory for the Victory and a classic example of a “never say die” attitude.
