The 2s were in action against top of the table DB Falcons a team who have scored at least 4 goals in every game while conceding only a few. Last time out Nomads narrowly missed out on getting a point having come from behind to level the scores before conceding a late winner.
Similarly to the previous game it was Falcons who started best putting pressure on the Nomad defence who were tackling well but struggling to maintain possession. This led to Falcons taking the lead around 10 minutes in.
Slowly Nomads started to settle in and they slowly improved throughout the half.
The 2nd half was far more even with Nomads starting to create some chances and look to attack rather than defend. However this opened up more space on the pitch and they fell 2-0 behind after a counter attack. Despite this they continued to look dangerous and when Erin Moffett scored the game was in the balance.
In the end it was a further counter attack by Falcons which extended the score to 3-1, this ends the 2s Development league cycle. With the progress made in the last year and throughout this season so far we have a chance to win the Development cup in the New Year.
