The Jags league season opened on Sunday with a difficult away tie at Boldmere Falcons S&S. A new look starting line up after the loss of influential team regulars to the Walsall ranks were soon behind early in the first half after some good build up play from Boldmere which resulted in a looping unstoppable shot past the helpless Man of the Match keeper Josh Price.
The Jags then showed some battling character by drawing level shortly afterwards, a long through ball from Ollie Cooper which Scott Wilding ran onto and cooly placed in the top corner giving the young Boldmere keeper no chance. A serge of Boldmere pressure was to follow which in turn led to a string of fine saves from Price but his heroics were in vain as Boldmere’s dominance began to tell. Under pressure the Jags were making mistakes and unfortunately conceded two quick goals just before half time.
The second half started as the first ended with Boldmere pressure on the Jags goal, Price was again called into action to keep the score close but the home side extended their lead from a well taken corner and cool finish giving Price no chance. Some late procession saw the Jags comeback into the game but the two big home defenders protected their keeper well and Boldmere played the game out at a stroll.
The two sides meet again this week when the Jags will be hoping to get their season on track, perhaps the wide open spaces of their home pitch will give them the edge?How to Sleep movie
