Greens win 1-0 at Dandenong
Bentleigh Greens fought out a keenly contested match with Dandenong Thunder at George Andrews Reserve last Saturday night. Dandenong applied pressure with counter attacking breaks consistently.
Some good goalkeeping by Alistair Bray and tight defending at corners and set pieces by the Greens defence allowed them to keep a clean sheet. Both teams had good opportunities. The Greens seized the lead in the 56th minute when David Stirton headed home from 6 meters from a well flighted free kick. At full time Dandenong were asking themselves how they didn’t achieve at least a draw. However there have been numerous matches in 2014 where Bentleigh break into a fast mid-field possession game when they dominate for 10 to 15 minutes. This disturbs the rhythm of the opposition and they use a lot of energy trying to regain the initiative, which causes missed chances and anxiety.
Under 20 NPL round 17 score: Bentleigh Greens 3 Dandenong T 2 win by the U20 squad.
The under 20 squad is currently under the direction of Frank McGrellis, the BGSC Director of Coaching.
