Phoenix lose on pens to Ashford!!
On Saturday Phoenix faced Ashford utd at home in the quarter final of the Kent Senior Trophy.
This was to be our first game this season against them, Ashford up to yesterday had a terrible recoed against Phoenix in 2 season played 5 lost 5, and Ashford finished 3rd in the Kent Invicta last season after we finished top.
Well that is history and we knew we were in for a tough game with Ashford sitting top of the SCEFL.
The game started poorly for Phoenix and we found our selves 1 down after 4 minutes , a good headed goal from Jimmy Dryden (but who was marking him?) after that Phoenix got back into the game and should ahve been level before half time , but the Ashford keeper was having a blinder, he made a great save from a looping Andy Constable header,
Phoenix managed to get it back to 1-1 on 57mins, a well delivered free kick was met by Chris Hill.
After that it was all Phoenix and it was only some great keeping and poor finishing that kept the score at 1-1 at full time then aet.
Penalty shoot out!!!!!
Phoenix miss!!! ARGH!!!!!!!
Phoenix miss !!!! and go out !!!! gutted at Phoenix!!!!!
Unlucky chaps, it was still a good team performance and lots of positives , especially from some of the new signings.
Next up on Tuesday we back in League action away to Corinthian's
