Royals fade at end and concede points
Royals 2-6 Shrewsbury Juniors (League, 14-09-08)
(Hearle, Green)

Royals will look back on the last 15 minutes of this game and wonder how they could gift the points to their opponents after battling for so long. Four goals in the last 15 minutes meant that Shrewsbury Juniors took the points, with the Royals ruing their missed opportunity.

Royals were able to field a strong side for this game and they knew their opponents would be a tough test. This was even more evident when Shrewsbury took the lead after 8 minutes after having pushed the Royals deep into their own half.

Five minutes later Royals hit back with a goal from Hearle, after a move between Fielding and Lewis set him on his way.

Then Royals had a chance to take the lead after Smith was brought down by the opposing goalkeeper and a penalty was awarded. Lewis struck the penalty straight, and the keeper was able to save easily.

Royals then did take the lead on 28 minutes when Green stepped up and placed a free kick in the top corner, to make the score 2-1.

Royals held their lead until 12 minutes into the second half, when they conceded the equaliser. At that point enforced substitutions were made when Agnew and Riley replaced Green and Fielding who had to go to play for their school. Five minutes later Weynberg replaced Baker.

Shrewsbury took advantage of these changes and hit the Royals hard. Royals heads dropped and four quick goals meant that with a final score of 2-6 the opposition took the points.

Royals can be satisfied though, that they battled hard and were equal to one of the strongest teams in the league for all but 15 minutes of this game.

Team: Keugler, Al-Houbani, Miles, Green (Agnew 50), Baker (Weynberg 55), Hearle, Leech, Moffat, Fielding (Riley 50), Lewis, Smith
