In a game haunted by rain, the Cats conceded an own goal within the first five minutes of the game. Showing that their fortitude and chemistry would win out on the day, Hazar Demirkol '20 found August Saigne '21 on a through ball immediately after to even things at one. When another defensive error lead to a second Canterbury goal, August ran in a longer through ball from Russell Tevie '20 in response a few minutes later.
In the second half, the Cats dominated possession. August again handled a chance, this time with a cross that would inevitably become an own goal. Down one with a few to play, Canterbury had little left to push for a tie.
Russell again earned Player of the Match. Owen Kempton '20 played well in net with seven saves.
