Bushey Heath B were narrowly defeated by Nascot Wood Y5 on Thursday in an exciting game which they will feel they could have won.
For the second week in a row, Nascot Wood started the game strongly, putting Bushey Heath B on the back foot with some good passing and movement. Bushey Heath B defended well, highlighted by some excellent tackling by Mia and Sam. Towards the end of the first half, Nascot Wood were awarded a penalty after a foul inside the box, but an excellent save by Rishaan saw the game remain even at the half time whistle.
HT: Bushey Heath B 0-0 Nascot Wood Y5
Again, Nascot Wood came out strongly after the break and opened the scoring with a tidy finish after a well-placed ball over the top of the Bushey Heath defence. Heads could have easily dropped, but Bushey Heath dug deep and were on top for the remainder of the game. Gabriel and Shaan were a constant threat going forward, and Bushey Heath will feel unlucky not to have levelled the game after a close-range header from Morgan was saved on the line. In the final moments, it looked as if Bushey Heath were going to snatch a point after another fantastic run and shot by Gabriel, only for it to cruelly cannon off of the bar and out for a throw-in.
