Kendal were hoping to bounce back after last weeks disappointing result as they welcomed Fylde to the Cinder Ovens pitch at Kirkbie Kendal School..
The match started with both teams sizing each other out. Fylde were passing the ball around well, but Kendal began to gain the upper hand with Mark Addison, Liam Derome, Nick Davis and Aaron Screen earning dominance in midfield. The home side’s passing game started to create chance after chance, but the Fylde keeper was in such good form that his performance was reminiscent to that of one of David de Gea’s. After several quality saves the away side were enthused to up their game and took the game to Kendal. In a ten minute spell the hosts found themselves three goals down.
Half time: Kendal 0 – 3 Fylde.
The second period saw a much more controlled effort from Kendal as they stayed calm and continued to boss the midfield. The majority of the game was played out within the Fylde half and if possession were all you needed to win matches then Kendal would have run away with it. However, no matter how many attacks they had or shots they created there was simply no beating the Fylde shot stopper. Man of the match Ewan Galloway ran himself into the ground in an effort to somehow get The Greens backs into the game, but it was not to be. Fylde added to their tally after converting a penalty corner late in the half.
Kendal will look to shake off the last couple of results as they head into the final weekend before the winter break with a double header of fixtures. The Greens are at home to Golborne Men’s 1s on Saturday and have a cup game away to Carlisle Men’s 1s on Sunday.
Full time: Kendal Men’s 1s 0 – 4 Fylde Men’s 1s.
