Match Reports

Axbridge Saxons Report;

"The wind played a big factor in this game with both sides being up against it in each half. Saxons again, as previously in games this season, played some good football at times but just couldn't find that last ball or shot to break the deadlock. We just couldn't get the ball into the box regularly enough. Avon Retreads broke the deadlock in the first half & Saxons went into the half time break 1-0 down. Saxons had the benefit of the wind in the 2nd half but still that last ball or shot wasn't quite there or it went directly at the keeper. The majority of the 2nd half was based in Avon Retreads half & they were defending resolutely until Saxons thought that they were back on terms. Lawes pumped a free kick into the penalty box & after a bit of pinball in the box Bugler bundled the ball home. However, this was ruled out for an offside flag being raised & this advised as of being from the initial free kick, this despite a player hovering on the line!!!! This was a bit unjust as Saxons were easily worth a point in this game as a minimum. Saxons continued to push forward & we really knew it wasn't going to be our day when a Tullett thunderbolt from 25 yards crashed back off the cross bar. Saxons pushed further forward in search of an equaliser & committed more and more people forward. This inevitably left us exposed at the back & Retreads scored a 2nd to secure the points. "
