Adel Men’s 4s versus Airedale 3s.
The 4s started the game mighty as always with a high intensity from all pressing a strong Airedale side deep in their half. A few early chances from Greig and brayshaw gave the 4s hope of the opening goal – firstly an open net missed by brayshaw then a few shots saved by what was an impressive Airedale keeper. Not long before the first half ended Brayshaw had a shot on goal which resulted in a rebound
off the keeper which Damian was there to smash home.The second half began with a very determined Airedale performance that pushed us straight from the off. But as
always our defence was mighty: the defensive cannon was always there from Luke Taylor, the brick wall of Bob Sibley, a nosebleed for Craig, and a beast performance from Andy Miles. On the counterattack Adel played a fantastic ball to the back only for Beale to shy away from the diving header and open goal opportunity. The game drew to a close with Airedale trying to find the equaliser but as always we are mighty and held our own right up to the final whistle. 1-0. A great performance from everyone on the pitch.
