Fortress BreachedEd Doust
Having the late game at the fortress and a team line up out a day early, Tim had plenty of time to mentally prepare himself for the battle. With our captain driving his noble steed to battle with his kit drying in the wind against once fellow comrades now enemies, we all gathered to pre pair for a hard battle against a tight spalding team. The sun was shining and scott was not ready to run on the grass as "its a hard surface" for his knees.
With our fortress unbreached for last 2 years the battle commenced. The horn started as the battles started, spalding catapulting attacks against the South army but super soldier Mike with his armour on was not letting them enter. As the archers from the back firing balls up the field souths army fought back. Creating damage to the enemies lines oppotunites came to take first blood, but there wall to hard to break down. As spalding soldiers kept battling against there way, Mike in his bright shining armour and his trusted side kick scott with his killer sword tackling away the fortress held off for the half. The score 0-0 it was all to fight for in second half.
As the battle commenced again for the second half our leader Sam started slashed at the defence winning first short in the half for us. Ed slipped to scott calving a ball across goal. Tim sneaking his way through to back post diving to take first blood but the ball slid past the wrong side of the post. Spaldings attack grew stronger and stronger and eventually it happened. With a short corner won, they fired a piercing shot into the back of the net. First blood taken. Souths army tried to clench back through axing up the battle field to a tough spalding team with chances from Jack H and James Bowne we couldn't get past. With our forces lines week, spalding took another chance and took a hammering blow taking blood again making it 2-0. A late south goal in the closing minutes from scott from a short corner was to little to late for the South army and the fortress was breached for the first time in nearly 2 years.
