GOALS: Williamson (2), Rohman ASSISTS: Garcia, Gowrie MAN OF THE MATCH: Quaye
COMBATIVE DIDSBURY LOSE WITH HEADS HELD HIGH
Nice sunny Sunday morning to play football in Cheadle.
Didsbury faced their second to last match of the season dealing a blow before starting. With no goalkeeper available to defend the net, Ollie Quaye offered himself to defend it.
The matched kicked off with Chris and James playing together in the midfield for first time. That did not stop them to do some really good combinations although none of them were finalising near the opponent´s goal.
None of the two teams was dominating the match, although Quaye had to do a couple of De Gea interventions with his feet to save long range shots.
Given Didsbury was struggling to trespass the defensive line, Chris had a go with a powerful shot from out of the box which the keeper did not even see. 1-0 for the visitants.
The advantage for the visitants did not last too long. Poynton FC drew the match with some lack of concentration from the limes.
The half finished with a flurry of activity as first there was a penalty in favour of the locals that was saved by Quaye but the ref asked for it to be repeated. The locals did not miss the second chance.
Didsbury was forced to make a change on the stroke of half-time when Jonny Owen, who had been struggling with his knee, was replaced by Oscar Garcia.
The second half could not have started better and Didsbury scored a goal on a counter attack after a triangle combination between Gaz New, Garcia and Sham Rohman. Match started from zero once again and the feeling was that Didsbury had fresher legs than the opponents.
It was that time of the match when Didsbury seemed to be playing better than Inter Cheadle, that a long pass between the lime green centrebacks landed to the opposition striker, who did not forgive the visitants mistake.
There were still 20 minutes to play and Didsbury had most of the possession of the ball.
Just a few minutes later, what seemed to be a far distance free kick for a Sunday league match ended up being a screamer from Chris, who put the ball next to the spider web on the top right corner of the goal.
With just a few minutes to play and when the fairest result seemed to be a share of points for both teams, the home side kicked off a corner and scored a goal after a couple of rebounds in the area.
With only 3 minutes left to play, Didsbury did not have time to look for the miracle.
