Reserves Take Derby Spoils
Two goal cushion sees the reserves grab all 3points
The reserves travelled to meet local rivals Harleston Town with both teams not quite doing as well in the league as thye might have hoped at the start now just battling it out for local pride.
The game started evenly with Harleston looking to stretch the Scole back four with long balls over the top almost from the very start. Scole with the normal various changes to the last game started with a conservative 4-5-1 which left front man Tom Dade too isolated for a lot of the time. Scole however started to probe the Harleston defence and some good work from home keeper Philpot kept Scole out. Scole started to support Dade a bit more as they grew in confidence and Matty Anderson turned and his strike from outside the box found the corner of the net to put the visitors one up. Harleston continued to look for their speedy front players but the Scole defence worked hard to soak up the through balls and keeper Mark Woodcock was alert to those that came through. HT 0-1
Scole came out for the second half keeping the same shape and lapped up the Harleston play hitting the home team on the break with Harry Rolingson and Brendan Head breaking to support the attack. Rolingson got through one on one but was unable to find a way past the home keeper. The hard running Head did manage to wriggle his way through and his dragged shot went in just past the post to put Scole 2-0 up.
Harleston kept working to try and get back in the game but it was Scole who looked more likely to add to their tally.
Man of the match: Jack Stevenson didnt put a foot wrong all game, Brendan Head worked his socks off but this week goes to the very classy looking Isaac Watkinson at right back.
