Balham Sfx 3-4 Fulham (HB) Foundation


Balham Sfx faced Fulham in the English colleges league.

Balham got off to a great start scoring within the first 2 minutes of the game after intense pressure from the front four leading to the opposition giving possession away on the edge of their box. A great exchange between Leo and Danny led to Danny putting Balham in the lead.
Fulham equalised 15 minutes later after a mishap in the Balham defence led to the ball falling in front of their striker who finished emphatically to draw them level.
After half time Fulham continued to play some very good flowing passing football and took the lead before extending it to 4-1 with 25 minutes to go.
The Balham boys showed good character and continued to keep going and continued to put together very good passing moves, their high pressure was problematic for Fulham who conceded the ball in their half again, this led to the ball being played out wide to Fred who played in an excellent cross forcing the defender to head into his own goal. The game finished 4-3 with Balham getting another goal back late on in the game as a good run by Kelvin led to a last ditch tackle by the defender which led to the ball trickling into the Fulham goal.
