Strathalbyn Under 14 RED played their first Cup Round game this Saturday at their home ground against a 'lively' Murray Bridge team in a game that saw a few heated moments from the away team.
Murray Bridge opened the scoring early in the first half which put pressure on Strathalbyn to match their game and whilst there was an overall frantic nature to the playing style from both teams Strathalbyn managed to even the score by half time.
It was in the second half however that Strathalbyn pulled out all stops to show that they were the stronger team even amidst an increasingly more aggressive style of play from Murray Bridge.
Strathalbyn managed to maintain composure thanks to solid defending and great goalkeeping, which gave the home team the momentum they needed and in turn allowed the forwards to counter Murray Bridge's attack which resulted in another 2 goals for the home team.
Final score Strathalbyn 3 - Murray Bridge 1
