Hyde School:0 – Gould Academy: 0
The Phoenix traveled to Bethel Maine to play a match with Gould on Wednesday. It was played on their natural grass pitch under sunny skies and unseasonably warm temperatures.
The game was back and forth for the first half of play. The Hyde boys had a slight advantage with regard to time of possession and number of shots. Connor Gray`17 and Christian Beeke`18 played striker for the first half. They generated some good chances but none that resulted in goals. The score at half time was 0-0.
Captain PG Dylan Budd anchored the defensive unit along with Jason Filios`17, Se Jun Kim`18 and PG Brandon Nelson. They combined with Captain keeper Greg Kidger`17 to keep the score sheet blank for the opponent. The midfield unit of Jed Danforth`19, PG Zach Hambleton, Serge Mudogo`18 and Will Duerr`18 continued to create scoring opportunities, but none resulted in goals. The game ended in a 0-0 tie.
This was a frustrating match for the team. They were able to win the game in terms of stats, but failed to score any goals. This has been an area that we have been working to address.
