When the game turned our way – coaches pinpoint key to win

posted in: Men, News, Northern League

Cambridge head coach Mike Woodlock says his side was a bit fortunate to go into half-time 3-1 up against Onehunga Mangere United “but we’ll take it.”

He said his team’s three goals in quick succession turned the game Cambridge’s way, and helped seal the 4-2 eventual scoreline in the Reds’ favour.

Onehunga Mangere’s co-coach Brian Turner agreed with Woodlock’s assessment, saying his side should have held out Cambridge during the brief spell after the 30-minute mark when Daniel Clarkin, Josh Clarkin and Dylan Blair all found the net for the visitors.

But the former All White said Cambridge got the win they came for, and “good luck to them”.
