Away | 14 September 2016 | Attendance: 42
Safe to say we've had better nights and missing probably 6 starters it was always going to be an uphill struggle against a very well organised and ruthless Hengrove side.
Went behind early on to a superb 20 yard strike that would have beaten 3 keepers and though we responded well with some clever passing of our own we never looked like finding a way past a well drilled home defence and it came as no surprise when we conceded a second 5 minutes before halftime.
Second half was only a couple of minutes old when 2 became 3 and before you could blink 4.
Three changes quickly made but it didn't really have the desired affect and Hengrove went for the jugular adding 2 further goals and only some last ditch defending and the post saved us from further embarrassment.
Hard lesson learned against a side who I'm sure will be there or thereabouts come May and we will try and learn from it and move on to Saturday and another tough fixture at home to Cheddar.
Well done to the 3 officials who had a very good evening and thanks to Hengrove for there superb after match hospitality.
