Fantastic Win Coming From Behind
By Tom Scott-Kelly
Never give up, even when you're 2 behind
The Swarm won there first league game of the season through grit and determination having spent most of the game being out played by a very good Bath side.
The team can thank Man of the match James Mantel for countless saves keeping the score down. At 2-0 nil down at half time the team had to get more physical and pressure the Bath team into making mistakes. This is exactly what happened for there first goal, Fred Hunter-Hopkins forcing the Bath keeper into a mistake, winning the ball and tapping into the net. This proved the spark the team needed. The whole team responded, pressing and forcing Bath into more mistakes. The second came from good work from Kaylum winning the ball before crossing. Fred touched it on to Thomas Peters won calmly finished.
The third and winning goal came from a 30 yard free kick from Oliver Harper that wouldn’t have gone amiss in the premiership. Top bins leaving the keeper with no hope.
Even with 5 minutes left it was down to man of the match James Mantel in goal, who time after time during the game kept Bath out keep save the day, stopping shot after shot.
Lucky win, perhaps, but you get out of a game what you put in. Today was one of those days where the team worked there socks off and got what there efforts deserved.
Well done team. Made your coaches proud and more importantly your parents too.
