Welwyn face tough competition but show massive progression
Welwyn came out fighting knowing this was going to be a tough tie against 3rd place potters bar. They immediately piled the pressure on, and it wasn't long before they took the first goal. Realising we needed to up our game we began to attack and had 3 excellent chances that just couldn't find the back of the net. The game remained evenly matched but with potters bar using the long ball over the top and cutting out our midfield it was inevitable that they would get a 2nd.
At 2-0 down we never gave up and continued to try to play football on the ground, hats off to a superb goalie who had to make at least 3 fantastic saves to keep them with a 2-0 lead. Unfortunately as the game progresesd we just couldn't find the back of the net and let in 2 very sloppy goals.
Overall it was a solid performance by Welwyn who never let their heads drop, and didnt allow the frustration of the game stop them from playing some superb football. Yes we didn't get the win but the lads should be extremely proud of the progression they have made this season. This new team has gone from strength to strengh.
Our man of the match today was Dom.
