Aiming to keep our progress going, we fell behind within the first 5 minutes of the game. Took us awhile to get out of the blocks and we couldn't produce the equalizer. Essex took the early lead and carried there momentum on. FCC trailed 3-0 at the conclusion of the first half.
Though we dug ourselves in a big whole. We started playing our game in the second half. We possessed well at times and had the ball in their ends for a lot of the game. We just did not have end product to our possession. CCBC Essex did not let their foot off the pedal and put up a strong defensive front. They countered well all game and were dangerous of set pieces. Second half score 1-1.
Final score: FCC 1 CCBC ESSEX 4
