Northwood put a stop to the Michaelhouse unbeaten run when they beat them 2-0 at Northwood on Saturday. Both sides played entertaining football and the game was one of the best played at Northwood.
Northwood took the lead early in the game with a great goal by the hard working Ross Venning-Pridham. Both sides played attacking football and the goalkeepers were kept busy .
Northwood deserved their lead at half time as they had more chances and were enterprising in mid field.
The second half was a ding dong battle, with Michaelhouse pushing for the equaliser and Northwood goalkeeper Taine Bird pulling off some great saves to keep the Knights in the lead.
Jordan Edy was a thorn in the Michaelhouse side with his devastating runs and he kept the Michaelhouse defence busy. With 8 minutes to play Jordan Edy went on another great run and fired a shot into the top left hand corner of the Michaelhouse goal to give the Knights a well deserved 2 goal lead.
For the last 8 minutes Northwood defended with style and hard working captain Matthew Talbot marshalled his defence to keep Michaelhouse at bay and the Knights coming away with a well deserved victory.
